Dear Support Team,

how can I show the complete data in item if the column size is smaller than data size and if I move over it? Basically the same like in the CExtGridCell !

But the Explorer (CListCtrl) has this feature.!!!

We can regard your question as a feature requests. The tree view common control supports item expanding. Many controls in Prof-UIS support both item expanding and tooltips. The list view common control does not support item expanding. We tried to review some articles dedicated to list view improvements and found several tooltip based extensions:

And, fortunately, we found one attempt of list view item expanding extension:

Yes, the last link is exactly what I want. But it would be nice if you could add this feature to the CExtListCtrl class. It looks not so difficult and very complex.

Thank you very much.

Your question contains the answer: use Prof-UIS grid instead of list view common control. The CExtListCtrl class just uses the skinned CExtHeaderCtrl header control with some additional features. We also provide skinned scroll bars for list view in the CExtNCSB < CExtListCtrl > specialized template class. The CExtListCtrl control supports sorting by several columns. All the other features are not changed in comparison with the CListCtrl control.
