Change background color of individual rows


Changing the color of a single row is achieved in essentially the same way as changing the background color of the entire control. See 'Change background color'.

Instead of using the same color for all rows, use a row specific color. If you want to be able to add any color to any row then you would have to track this information in some data structure. In the code below we simply highlight the alternate rows with yellow. This code belongs in the DrawItem() function. See 'Selection highlighting of entire row' for more details.

	// Draw the background color
	if( bHighlight )
	{
		pDC->SetTextColor(::GetSysColor(COLOR_HIGHLIGHTTEXT));
		pDC->SetBkColor(::GetSysColor(COLOR_HIGHLIGHT));

		pDC->FillRect(rcHighlight, &CBrush(::GetSysColor(COLOR_HIGHLIGHT)));
	}
	else
	{
		CRect rcClient, rcRow = rcItem;
		GetClientRect(&rcClient);
		rcRow.right = rcClient.right;

		pDC->FillRect(rcRow, &CBrush(nItem%2 ? ::GetSysColor(COLOR_WINDOW) :
	 					RGB(255,255,0)));
	}
