Determining the right click on the header of the CListCtrl

A good way to handle a right click on the header control of a list control is to use the HDM_HITTEST message to determine on which header item the user right clicked.

Here is an example:

BOOL CMyListCtrl::OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, LRESULT* pResult) 
    if( wParam==0 && ((NMHDR*)lParam)->code == NM_RCLICK)
        POINT Point;
        GetCursorPos (&Point);
        HDHITTESTINFO HitTest;
        //Offset of right scrolling  = Point.x+ GetScrollPos(SB_HORZ); //Offset of right scrolling = Point.y;
        //Send the Hit Test Message


The HDHITTESTINFO structure holds the column index in its iItem member.
