HI and Thanks in advance.
I am wondering how/ where you get to use a list view control that doubles up as not just a report tool, but can be used to collect data.
If you have used quickbooks, or you have seen some POS (Point of Sale) softwares, you have seen the Listview control that say has columns that are editable just like a spreadsheet.
It can have first column where you input item code.
second column has a drop down, that lists options for you to choose.
third column you input quantity.
fourth column you input unit price
and last column does total.

Mark you, the listview usually has like few records (e.g 1), then as you enter records
the rows continue growing.

Its also common in GUIs for Database Mgt System, where you enter fieldname, the next column has datatype (from a drop down), next column you edit field length etc.

If you are capable of helping me, i know you already know what control am taking about
Kindly assist, i need it for a simple store management system am making.

What you're looking for is a Grid Control.
Even though there is no grid control as such with VC++, there are many articles and source code on it.
Take a look at a few here on CP -
The Grid Control[^]
