LVHITTESTINFO structure

Contains information about a hit test. This structure has been extended to accommodate subitem hit-testing. It is used in association with the LVM_HITTEST and LVM_SUBITEMHITTEST messages and their related macros. This structure supersedes the LVHITTESTINFO structure.

Syntax

typedef struct tagLVHITTESTINFO {
  POINT pt;
  UINT  flags;
  int   iItem;
  int   iSubItem;
  int   iGroup;
} LVHITTESTINFO, *LPLVHITTESTINFO;

Members

pt

Type: POINT

The position to hit test, in client coordinates.

flags

Type: UINT

The variable that receives information about the results of a hit test. This member can be one or more of the following values:

You can use LVHT_ABOVE, LVHT_BELOW, LVHT_TOLEFT, and LVHT_TORIGHT to determine whether to scroll the contents of a list-view control. Two of these values may be combined. For example, if the position is above and to the left of the client area, you could use both LVHT_ABOVE and LVHT_TOLEFT. 

You can test for LVHT_ONITEM to determine whether a specified position is over a list-view item. This value is a bitwise-OR operation on LVHT_ONITEMICON, LVHT_ONITEMLABEL, and LVHT_ONITEMSTATEICON.
