    Angry ListBox, tabbing

    I have a listbox, and a bunch of string in it.
    the strings are in this shape:
    Code:
    sptrinf("%s \t %s", name, lastname);
    '\t' is the tab, my goal is this:
    since all the character widths are not the same:
    mmm
    lll
    i can't align my text:
    mmm slfjsdflkj
    lmm sdlfjsdflk
    lll sdfkljsdflj
    mlm sdlkfjsfj
    and my goal is:
    Code:
    mmm slfjsdflkj
    lmm sdlfjsdflk
    lll sdfkljsdflj
    mlm sdlkfjsfj
    but i don't want to use Courier New. The '\t' isn't working for an unknown reason.
    Someone told me i should set something for tab. I don't know what, help

    Ok I looked it up.
    You have to create the listbox with the style LBS_USETABSTOPS and send the message LB_SETTABSTOPS. Hope that helps
