Customizing a listview control's largeicons view

Hi there,

I'm hunting around for some kind of example on how to customize the
largeicons view of a listview control, I would like to draw each item myself
if possible, is it possible to owner draw this control? Anyway, any
pointers to examples would be most appreciated as all I seem to find is
examples of customizing the details view. Cheers loads in advance!!

Nick.

Cheers Ken, I shall go check it out. I had a good attempt to try to
decipher the Windows Messages route yesterday but ended up with something
rather bizaar, it's a shame this isn't documented well enough, but then
again I don't suppose Microsoft want everyone with Explorer clones, and that
hardly suprises me. Thanks again :-)

Hi again,

Unfortunately the example at CP is just another "report view" example,
as far as I am aware in order to owner draw in the "large icons" view you
need to handle the parents messages, I have found a couple of CPP examples
that I'm trying to bodge into submission from MSDN. Cheers for the link
anyway.
