    CListCtrl help!

    Hy everyone!
    I have a CListCtrl in my dialog that has a lot of items, so list is scrollable,
    i have just 1 problem, when user wants to search an item in the list, if a match is found it notifies the user via MessageBox and highlights the item in the list, i do this all successfuly, but user has to scroll down to the item to see it is selected.

    How can i make that when item is found that list scrolls itself to that item?
    Please help, thanks!

    Hi !

    You can use CListCtrl::SetHotItem using index to set item as selected...

    Thanks ,

    1) Find the position of the item you already searched.
    2) Take a look at how many row in your list control if without scroll.
    3) According the row you got , using scroll if exceed row without using scroll, you may call scroll.

    Hope I already understand what you are writting.

    You can use the EnsureVisible() function for this.
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...sf(VS.80).aspx

    Use the search function ('EnsureVisible CListCtrl') for more examples.

    How is the selected item highlighted.

    i used this

    pl->SetHotItem(num - 2);
    pl->SetSelectionMark(num - 2);
    pl->SetCheck(num - 2, TRUE);
    pl->EnsureVisible(num - 2, FALSE);
    but its not highlighting the selected one

    Double check your program first, if question, you'd better think it over for why first , then you will learn some more.

    Re: CListCtrl help!

    You have to use SetItemState()
    e.g.
    Code:
    ................
    list->SetFocus();
    list->SetSelectionMark(index);
    list->SetItemState(index,LVIS_SELECTED, LVIS_SELECTED);
    list->EnsureVisible(index, FALSE);
    ...................
