I want to refresh CMFCShellListCtrl after windows finihed paste. I use WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD, but the resulet is not what I want.
I also write a cut function, it wroks and can be used by paste. But after I finish paste, the paste button is still available, so how to "clear" clipboard?
Thanks to everyone's help at first!

void CFilesBrowserView::OnDrawClipboard()

	// TODO: Add your message handler code here
		if(::IsClipboardFormatAvailable(CF_HDROP) && ::GetFocus()!=m_fileList.m_hWnd)
			m_fileList.Refresh();  //refresh

Perhaps you're looking for this?BOOL EmptyClipboard(VOID);

Hi, thanks for your reminder. I ever also used this function, but it didn't work. Then I tird it again today, I found a bug in my program, it works!!
Do you know how to get the paste message after finished paste?

There is no callback mechanism for clipboard operations. Once you have copied something to the clipboard the data is owned by the clipboard. This is because the source application from where you have copied may have been already closed when the data is pasted by another application.

Hi Jochen, thanks for your detail explaining. But I still have one doubt, if I open two file exploers in windows, then I delete or clip one file in one exploer, the other exploer will know I should refresh now. So do you know the mechanism?

I don't know exactly how the file Explorer does that. It probably monitors the directory for changings using one of the Windows API functions for file monitoring or just checks the modified time stamp of the directory entry in intervals (it will be updated when the folder content changes).

However, this applies only to folders actually opened in the Explorer and not to other applications and other clipboard fromats.
