Greetings.

Consider I have a list box filled with items that belong to 3 different groups. It would be nice to give a distinctive background color to each group for better use and visibility.

I know the standard ListBox control has no such Property but it has an elusive hwnd which I suppose could be taken advantage of to manipulate it (hack) via the use of the API . Has anyone seen this done before ? I've done some googling but it's mainly for VB6 (net) controls and done with C.

Regards.
