    An excerpt from MSDN:

    ListView.setBackColor

    Sets the background color for the list view control.

    Syntax

    public void setBackColor( Color value )

    Parameters

    value

    A Color object that represents the background color for the list view control. The default value is the system window color.


    hope it helps

    Code:
    SendMessage(hwndList, LVM_SETBKCOLOR, 0, RGB(0,0,0));
    for backbackground
    and
    Code:
    SendMessage(hwndList, LVM_SETTEXTCOLOR, 0, RGB(255,255,255));
    for text
