    SOLUTION: How to hide the scrollbars on CListCtrl without loosing the functonality to scroll :)

    m_pl = CListCtrl!!!


    RECT ierect;
    int cxvs, cyvs;
    //m_pl.GetWindowRect (&ierect);
    m_pl.GetClientRect(&ierect);

    cxvs = GetSystemMetrics (SM_CXVSCROLL);
    cyvs = GetSystemMetrics (SM_CYVSCROLL);
    m_pl.SetWindowPos (0, ierect.left, ierect.top, ierect.right+cxvs, ierect.bottom+cyvs, SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOZORDER);
    ierect.bottom -= ierect.top+cyvs;
    //ierect.bottom -= (ierect.top-ierect.bottom);
    ierect.right -= ierect.left;
    ierect.top = 0;
    ierect.left = 0;
    HRGN iehrgn = CreateRectRgn (ierect.left, ierect.top, ierect.right-2, ierect.bottom);
    m_pl.SetWindowRgn (iehrgn, false);




    There are some trial and error to get it nice into your code, but I think it is a great solution to make a CListCtrl blend into the backround and make your own scrollbars (if needed )

    ListCtrl is good, but it just got better!

    Maybe you can wrap this is a small article explaining the idea and how to integrate in your code etc. and submit it to CodeGuru?

    An easier solution....

    I think this one is easier :
    - add the LVS_EX_FLATSB extended style to your list control;
    - use FlatSB_SetScrollProp to set the width and height of the scroll bars to zero.

    the ultimate way to dispose of the scrolls is.....

    Code:
    void 
    CListCtrlEx::OnNcCalcSize(BOOL bCalcValidRects, NCCALCSIZE_PARAMS FAR* lpncsp) 
    {
         ModifyStyle( WS_HSCROLL | WS_VSCROLL, 0 );		
         CListCtrl::OnNcCalcSize( bCalcValidRects, lpncsp );
    }
    I managed to create a control that has an embedded tree & list
    control, using the above method, and also was able to provide
    my own scrollbars in the controls non-client area.

    regards

    I'll think I will collect the different styles of removing the scrollbars and make an article about it...

    Is it alright that I use your technique Filbert Fox?

    I've just published "MessageMod" to Codeguru, project and planetsourcecode... So I have some experience writing them...

    If I had the time but I am very busy at the moment, but would be happy to supply any code or help if asked, the problem I am currently having is scrolling this is down to my controls being custom drawn, but should have solved very shortly, then I will send you project.
