Fix resizing problem in above article

Override CListCtrl::OnNotify as follows :

BOOL CMyListCtrl::OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, LRESULT*pResult) 
  HD_NOTIFY *pHD = (HD_NOTIFY*)lParam;

  if ((pHD->hdr.code == HDN_ITEMCHANGINGA || pHD->hdr.code == HDN_ITEMCHANGINGW) && (GetStyle() & LVS_TYPEMASK) == LVS_REPORT)
  { // Invalidate empty bottom part of control to force erase the previous position of column
    int nBottom,nLastItem=GetItemCount()-1;
    if (nLastItem<0)
      nBottom=0; // List is empty : invalidate whole client rect
    { // Get Y position of bottom of list (last item)
      RECT ItemRect;
    RECT rect;
    if (nBottom<rect.bottom)
    { // Set top of rect as bottom of list (last item) : rect = empty part of list;

    // NB: We must to on with default processing.

  *pResult = 0;
  return CListCtrl::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult);

Simply adding a HDN_ITEMCHANGING or HDN_TRACK handler with
ClassWizarddoesn't work. These handlers are not called. Why ???
I noticed that class wizard places an ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT(...) entry for
these notifications. I'd rather put an ON_NOTIFY(...) since the
notification comes from the header control to its parent (the listctrl).
But Spy++ shows that the CtrlID of the header is 0. repplacing the
ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT entry by ON_NOTIFY(HDN_xxx,0,f) didn't solve the
problem. That's why I chose to override OnNotify()

    I am having a very similar problem. Similar barcode-like lines appear when I use the horizontal scroll bar. I am using an owner draw version of a CListCtrl derived class. If anyone has any solutions/suggestions pls let me know.

    Otherwise is there any way for me to use the LVS_EX_GRIDLINES extended style for the CListCtrl and then change the color of the grid lines.

    Thanks for any help,

  • This doesn't work for views.

    No complaints, just an FYI. If you are using CListViews, this solution doesn't
    work. I ended up calling OnEraseBkgnd() in OnPaint(). Probably not the best
    solution, but it works. :)
