Using sub-stings in non report view

I wanted a CListCtrl in icon view mode only (no switch to other view modes), but tried to "store" additional string information in subitems.

So I've useed used ...

        SetItemText (nIndex, 1, strMoreInfo)
and according to the help it returned Nonzero for "successful". but then later on when I tried to use that string with
        GetItemText (iItem, 1);
it return sucessful with nothing. :( The string was gone.

To make a long story short, one can't store subitems without a header. So an easy solution is to define two "blind" headers like ...

        for(int iHeader=0; iHeader < 2; iHeader++)
        {
                InsertColumn (iHeader, "header", LVCFMT_LEFT, -1, iHeader);
        }
and you can store whatever string you want in subitem.
