Implementing CustomDraw into Your Project

Environment: MFC

Here are the steps you need to perform to use this utility:

  1. Create the MFC project with view as ListView.
  2. Apply styles to the view .cpp file.
  3.   BOOL CMyListView::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
      {
        //adding styles
        cs.style |= LVS_REPORT;
        return CListView::PreCreateWindow(cs);
      }
    
  4. Add columns to the view .cpp file.
  5.   void CMyListView::OnInitialUpdate()
      {
        CListView::OnInitialUpdate();
    
        CListCtrl& ListCtrl = GetListCtrl();
    
        //inserting 5 cols
        ListCtrl.InsertColumn(0, "Col-1", LVCFMT_LEFT, 75);
        ListCtrl.InsertColumn(1, "Col-2", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100);
        ListCtrl.InsertColumn(2, "Col-3", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100);
        ListCtrl.InsertColumn(3, "Col-4", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100);
        ListCtrl.InsertColumn(4, "Col-5", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100);
    
        //adding 10 items
        CString item;
        for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
        {
          item.Format("Item-%d",i);
          ListCtrl.InsertItem(i,item);
        }
      }
    
  6. Add the following line to the message map area of the view header(.h) file.
  7.     afx_msg void OnCustomDraw(NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT*
                                  pResult);
    
  8. Add the following line to the message map area of the view .cpp file.
  9.     ON_NOTIFY_REFLECT(NM_CUSTOMDRAW, OnCustomDraw)
    
  10. Add the OnCustomDraw function.
  11.         void CMyListView::OnCustomDraw(NMHDR* pNMHDR,
                                           LRESULT* pResult)
            {
             *pResult = 0;
    
               COLORREF dwColourTxt = 0;
               COLORREF dwColourBk = RGB(255, 255, 255);
    
               LPNMLVCUSTOMDRAW  lplvcd = (LPNMLVCUSTOMDRAW)pNMHDR;
    
               switch(lplvcd->nmcd.dwDrawStage)
               {
                  Case CDDS_PREPAINT:

                     *pResult = CDRF_NOTIFYITEMDRAW;
                     return;
                  }
    
                  // Modify item text and or background
                  Case CDDS_ITEMPREPAINT:
