Title: What is a ListView control?
Post by: stevengraff on April 25, 2014, 02:35:15 pm
Is it a WinBatch thing? or Windows?

Is ReportView like a subset of ListView?

Would I ever create a ListView control in WinBatch?

A ListView is a Windows common control. Basically it is a window that displays a collection of items: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb774737(v=vs.85).aspx

The Report View control is a ListView common control with the 'report' Windows style.  It can be used as either a simple grid control when a full featured grid control is not needed or as an advanced version of the WIL dialog ITEMBOX control.

If you simply need to display a list (rather than a grid)  you can use the Item List Box (ITEMBOX).
