LVBKIMAGEA structure (commctrl.h)

Contains information about the background image of a list-view control. This structure is used for both setting and retrieving background image information.

Syntax

typedef struct tagLVBKIMAGEA {
  ULONG   ulFlags;
  HBITMAP hbm;
  LPSTR   pszImage;
  UINT    cchImageMax;
  int     xOffsetPercent;
  int     yOffsetPercent;
} LVBKIMAGEA, *LPLVBKIMAGEA;

Members

ulFlags

Type: ULONG

This member may be one or more of the following flags. You can use the LVBKIF_SOURCE_MASK value to mask off all but the source flags. You can use the LVBKIF_STYLE_MASK value to mask off all but the style flags.

Value Meaning
LVBKIF_SOURCE_NONE
The list-view control has no background image.
LVBKIF_SOURCE_HBITMAP
A background bitmap is supplied via the hbm member of LVBKIMAGE. If the message LVM_SETBKIMAGE succeeds, then the list-view takes ownership of the bitmap.
LVBKIF_SOURCE_URL
The pszImage member contains the URL of the background image.
LVBKIF_STYLE_NORMAL
The background image is displayed normally.
LVBKIF_STYLE_TILE
The background image will be tiled to fill the entire background of the control.
LVBKIF_FLAG_TILEOFFSET
Specify the coordinates of the first tile. This flag is valid only if the LVBKIF_STYLE_TILE flag is also specified. If this flag is not specified, the first tile begins at the upper-left corner of the client area. If you use ComCtl32.dll Version 6.0 the xOffsetPercent and yOffsetPercent fields contain pixels, not percentage values, to specify the coordinates of the first tile. Comctl32.dll version 6 is not redistributable but it is included in Windows or later. Also, you must specify Comctl32.dll version 6 in a manifest. For more information on manifests, see Enabling Visual Styles.
LVBKIF_TYPE_WATERMARK
A watermark background bitmap is supplied via the hbm member of LVBKIMAGE. If the LVM_SETBKIMAGE message succeeds, then the list-view control takes ownership of the bitmap.
LVBKIF_FLAG_ALPHABLEND
Valid only when LVBKIF_TYPE_WATERMARK is also specified. This flag indicates the bitmap provided via LVBKIF_TYPE_WATERMARK contains a valid alpha channel.

hbm

Type: HBITMAP

The handle of the background bitmap. This member is valid only if the LVBKIF_SOURCE_HBITMAP flag is set in ulFlags.

pszImage

Type: LPTSTR

Address of a NULL-terminated string that contains the URL of the background image. This member is valid only if the LVBKIF_SOURCE_URL flag is set in ulFlags. This member must be initialized to point to the buffer that contains or receives the text before sending the message.

cchImageMax

Type: UINT

Size of the buffer at the address in pszImage. If information is being sent to the control, this member is ignored.

xOffsetPercent

Type: int

Percentage of the control's client area that the image should be offset horizontally. For example, at 0 percent, the image will be displayed against the left edge of the control's client area. At 50 percent, the image will be displayed horizontally centered in the control's client area. At 100 percent, the image will be displayed against the right edge of the control's client area. This member is valid only when LVBKIF_STYLE_NORMAL is specified in ulFlags. If both LVBKIF_FLAG_TILEOFFSET and LVBKIF_STYLE_TILE are specified in ulFlags, then the value specifies the pixel, not percentage offset, of the first tile. Otherwise, the value is ignored.

yOffsetPercent

Type: int

Percentage of the control's client area that the image should be offset vertically. For example, at 0 percent, the image will be displayed against the top edge of the control's client area. At 50 percent, the image will be displayed vertically centered in the control's client area. At 100 percent, the image will be displayed against the bottom edge of the control's client area. This member is valid only when LVBKIF_STYLE_NORMAL is specified in ulFlags. If both LVBKIF_FLAG_TILEOFFSET and LVBKIF_STYLE_TILE are specified in ulFlags, then the value specifies the pixel, not percentage offset, of the first tile. Otherwise, the value is ignored.

Remarks

This structure is used with the LVM_GETBKIMAGE and LVM_SETBKIMAGE messages.

Note

The commctrl.h header defines LVBKIMAGE as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
