Hi,

I have a listview on my form, with the the property OwnerDraw is True.
I want to draw a selection, just like the property RowSelect
(Brush = darkblue and white font)

This is what I got, but I don't get further than this:

procedure TMainForm.lstvFoodDBCustomDrawItem(Sender: TCustomListView;
  Item: TListItem; State: TCustomDrawState; var DefaultDraw: Boolean);
begin
  if Item.Selected then
  begin
  Sender.Brush.Color := clNavy;
  end
  else
  Sender.Brush.Color := clWIndow;
end;

Who can help me?

P.

try this
procedure TForm1.ListView1CustomDrawItem(Sender: TCustomListView;
  Item: TListItem; State: TCustomDrawState; var DefaultDraw: Boolean);
Var
 R:TRect;
 i,NC:integer;
 TotWidth:Integer;
begin
 DefaultDraw:=False;
 With Sender.Canvas do
  begin
   if Item.Selected then
    begin
     Brush.Color := clNavy;
     Font.Color:= clWhite;
    end else
    begin
     Brush.Color := clWIndow;
     Font.Color:= clBlack;
    end;
   FillRect(Item.DisplayRect(drBounds));
   R:=Item.DisplayRect(drLabel);
   TextRect(R,R.Left,R.Top,Item.Caption);
   NC:=Min(Item.SubItems.Count+1,TListView(Sender).Columns.Count);
   if NC<2 Then Exit;
   TotWidth:=Sender.Column[0].Width;
   for i:=1 to NC-1 do
    begin
     TextOut(R.Left+TotWidth,R.Top,Item.SubItems[i-1]);
     TotWidth:=TotWidth+Sender.Column[i].Width;
    end;
  end;
end;

Note that it will not be pretty if columns are resized.
You can use this technique, it adds OnColumnResize events, and the bonus to invalidate the column drawings when resized - so they are redrawn properly without even needing to be told. It works well for me.

Are you sure you did it right ? Check this :
*  DefaultDraw:=False;  (in custom draw event)
*  OwnerDraw := True

I have changed the colors to be sure that it is my custom drawing :

I tested it with Delphi 7, you seem to have a newer version (2007?), I'll test tomorrow with 2007.

It works fine. I had use the JvListview-component from JEDI VCL.
But now I have tried it on a listview and it works fine.
