Editing item programmatically


Normally an edit is initiated when a user clicks on an item that already has the focus. Suppose, you want to start the edit when the user clicks a button, here is the code to start the edit.
m_listctrl.SetFocus();
m_listctrl.EditLabel(nItem);
You should remember to SetFocus() if the listview control does not already have the focus. Of course, for this to work, the listview control should have the LVM_EDITLABEL style.
