Creating an Object Property List using the CListCtrl

************************************************************************************

Special Note: This Demo was inspired by the work of Matt Gullett,   “A Property List Control”.

************************************************************************************

The following is a result of my attempt to create a control that would allow an application to add objects to that control. These objects need not share the same properties. This control is a CListCtrl derived class. Benefits of this control are that it allows its user to place this control in any dialog box. Functions are provided which allow the user to add/remove items within the control. The information within the fields of the control can all be accessed individually.

The code was written in Visual C++ 6.0.

How to Use:

First Copy MyListCtrl.cpp, MyListCtrl.h and IDB_BITMAP to your project workspace.

Within your dialog header file #include the file “MyListCtrl.h”. Add a CListCtrl to your dialog box. Redefine the CListCtrl as a CMyListCtrl.

Examples of how to add a field to the control and how to get information from those fields can be found in the file MyListCtrlDlg.cpp. Though using this control should be simple and straightforward, any question, suggestions or problems can be forwarded to me at marlont@worldnet.att.net.
