Color Listbox

I needed a listbox showing colors and text strings for a legend. When I didn't find any, I decided to create my own, based on Color Picker Combo Box (3) by James R. Twine.

It has the same functionality, except it is based on a CListbox instead of a CCombobox.

To use it: Define a Listbox on a dialog. Set the properties to owner-draw, with strings, and create a member variable of control type for it. Then replace the CListbox type with CColorListbox.

// in dialog.h
//{{AFX_DATA(CMyDlg)
enum { IDD = IDD_MY_DIALOG };
CColorListBox	m_ctrList1;
//}}AFX_DATA

    Hi, IB4m using Visual C++ 6.0 and IB4m going to use your CColorListBox. I have seen that there are different options to select in "Owner-Draw": None, Fixed and Variable. Which one should we use? Fixed or Variable?

    Could someone explain how to subclass a listbox, so I can fill different background colors for each item in the list?
    Thanks.
