an owner drawn listview i guess

P: n/a
hi all,

i need to develop a control to show contact details for companies, in a
similar fashion to the way outlook shows contacts.
at the moment, i'm cheating using HTML fed from a web server, however i need
to now make it use it's own control.

what's the best way of doing this?

Sam,

As you indicated in the subject of your post, you would have to create
an owner drawn control. There might be some controls out there that mimic
what you want (listview, datagrid, etc, etc), but in the end, you probably
will have to customize your own, or create one from scratch.

However, there are a number of third parties out there that thrive on
creating controls that mimic Outlook's style. You might want to look into
some of those.

Hope this helps.
