Determines the minimum column width necessary to display all of a given string.

int GetStringWidth( 
   LPCTSTR lpsz  
) const;


Address of a null-terminated string whose width is to be determined.

The width, in pixels, of the string pointed to by lpsz.

The returned width takes into account the control's current font and column margins, but not the width of a small icon.

		CString strColumn;
		int nWidth;

		// Insert six columns in the list view control. Make the width of 
		// the column be the width of the column header plus 50%. 
		for (int i = 0; i < 6; i++)
			strColumn.Format(_T("column %d"), i);
			nWidth = 3*m_myListCtrl.GetStringWidth(strColumn)/2;
			m_myListCtrl.InsertColumn(i, strColumn, LVCFMT_LEFT, nWidth);
