Select Multiple Items Functionally Without Pressing the CTRL or SHIFT Key in a List View Control

Introduction

A list control, with the report style, needs to select muliple item without pressing the CTRL or SHIFT key in the following instances:


  • Especially for a touch screen application or PocketPC.
  • There is a need not use two ways: select and checkbox.

The code for this article was written on Windows 2000 Professional with Microsoft Visual C++ 6. I have tested the and used the same in my work.

Features

The developer who needs to use a list control as described above just has to include the following files in the project:


  • NoKeyMultiListCtrl.cpp
  • NoKeyMultiListCtrl.h

The developer will need to create a list control resource and associate a control member variable with the same. Then, the CListCtrl type will have to be modified to CNoKeyMultiListCtrl.
