Using CHeaderCtrl

Use a header control, represented by class CHeaderCtrl, to display column headers for a columnar list. For example, a header control would be useful for implementing column controls in a spreadsheet.

The header control is usually divided into parts, called "header items," each bearing a title for the associated column of text or numbers. Depending on the styles you set, you can provide a number of direct ways for users to manipulate the header items.


CListCtrl provides an embedded header control, and CListView encapsulates CListCtrl in an MFC class. In general, think of using CHeaderCtrl to label lists that you intend to draw yourself.
