Selecting a row and column in a listview control

I have an application where I have to know the cell that was selected in the listview during a mouse click event. The row and column number must be available for me to know that. As far as I know I can only establish the row only or the column only that was selected. Can anybody help. I know I can use the flexigrid control to establish this, but I have other reasons for using the listview control.

RE: Selecting a row and column in a listview control

Hi peekay!

The listview (in details view) typically only allows you to select the first column. You can call the SendMessage Win32 function to send it a message to enable full-row-select, but that doesn't sound like what you want.

What it *does* sound like what you want is a grid control. Sorry. The listview just doesn't do cell selection.
