List view sort on header click and showing 'No items' with 'More' tooltip

WinMain simply calls WinMain_Internal. WinMain_Internal does the following:

  1. Initializes common controls.
    InitCC.dwICC =
    InitCC.dwICC =
        ICC_LISTVIEW_CLASSES  |  //  list view
        ICC_PROGRESS_CLASS    |  //  progress bar
        ICC_TREEVIEW_CLASSES  |  //  tree view & tooltip
        ICC_BAR_CLASSES       |  //  toolbar, status bar, trackbar & tooltip
        ICC_UPDOWN_CLASS      |  //  up-down
        ICC_USEREX_CLASSES    |  //  extended combo box
        ICC_TAB_CLASSES       |  //  tab & tooltip
        ICC_COOL_CLASSES      |  //  rebar
        ICC_DATE_CLASSES      |  //  date & time picker
    InitCC.dwSize    = sizeof(INITCOMMONCONTROLSEX);
        return -2;

    -1 is the standard return value for DialogBox failure, so we use -2. Of course, defining error constants with more readable values is recommended.


    1. Although Ole32.lib is linked, only VARIANT comparations and BSTR manipulator are used. So, OleInitialize call is not required.
    2. Not all of the ICC_* constants are required for this sample. You may choose the appropriate set that fits your needs.
    3. The sample assumes the list view in report mode.
  2. Calls DialogBox to show our sample dialog.

The dialog has 4 handlers.
