    Using the msdn link above i've managed to write this... it doesn't work, instead it changes the app's icon. why???

    Code:
                    lvc.mask = LVCF_FMT | LVCF_IMAGE | LVCF_SUBITEM | LVCF_WIDTH;
                    lvc.iSubItem = 2;
                    lvc.pszText = "Status";
                    lvc.cx = 58;
                    SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_INSERTCOLUMN, 2, (LPARAM)&lvc);
    
                    hIconList = ImageList_Create(GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSMICON), GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSMICON), ILC_MASK, 1, 1);
                    hIconItem = LoadIcon(ghInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(ID_ICON_STATUSOK));
                    ImageList_AddIcon(hIconList, hIconItem);
                    DestroyIcon(hIconItem);
                    ListView_SetImageList(hLookupList, hIconList, LVSIL_SMALL);
    
    
                    lvi.iItem = 0; //row
                    lvi.iSubItem = 2;
                    lvi.iImage = 0;
                    if (lvi.iSubItem)
                       SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_SETITEM, NULL, (LPARAM)&lvi);
                    else
                       SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_INSERTITEM, NULL, (LPARAM)&lvi);


    Can someone please give me an example without classes...

    thanks

    Windows uses the first icon in the resource file as the application icon.

    Try the listview sample here:

    Question

    thank you for the example it really helped me, but i have one last problem with the subitems...

    The image only works when the subitem is zero... so all I see in the subitems is text:

    Code:
    lvc.mask = LVCF_FMT | LVCF_TEXT | LVCF_WIDTH;
    lvc.fmt = LVCFMT_LEFT;
    lvc.iSubItem = 0;
    lvc.cx = 168;
    lvc.pszText = "one";
    SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_INSERTCOLUMN, 0, (LPARAM)&lvc);
    
    lvc.mask = LVCF_FMT | LVCF_TEXT | LVCF_SUBITEM | LVCF_WIDTH;
    lvc.iSubItem = 1;
    lvc.pszText = "two";
    lvc.cx = 68;
    SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_INSERTCOLUMN, 1, (LPARAM)&lvc);
    
    lvc.mask = LVCF_FMT | LVCF_TEXT | LVCF_SUBITEM | LVCF_WIDTH;
    lvc.iSubItem = 2;
    lvc.pszText = "three";
    lvc.cx = 58;
    SendMessage(hLookupList, LVM_INSERTCOLUMN, 2, (LPARAM)&lvc);
    
    
    . . .
    
    
    lvi.mask = LVIF_IMAGE | LVIF_TEXT;
    lvi.pszText = "OK";
    
    /* the image works here */
    lvi.iImage = 0;
    lvi.iItem = 0;
    lvi.iSubItem = 0;
    ListView_InsertItem(hLookupList, &lvi);
    
    /* the image doesn't work here */
    lvi.iSubItem = 1;
    lvi.iItem = 0;
    
    ListView_SetItem(hLookupList, &lvi);

    nm... I got it...


    All it takes is:
    Code:
    ListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle(hLookupList, LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES);


    thanks everyone
