CShellList - A Good ImageList Class

Environment: VC++

Part of this class was specifically designed for all the projects out there that need an imagelist that will retrieve system file icons, just like the explorer-like example provided. CShellList is much simpler than using shell namespace objects which only bring frustation and confusion.

The other part of the class was designed to retrieve all the system file type icons. This part of the class is fixed to work with IE6 Preview Edition which created problems with SHGetFileInfo when it registered the CDF file type

Inside the class are comments on how to use the functions, and the example project should show you how to tie in the class with your project.

Updated on July 28, 2001

  • Added System Image List attaching and detaching functions
  • Fixed CDF for all preview releases of IE6
