This message sets some or all of a list-view item's attributes. You can also send LVM_SETITEM to set the text of a subitem. You can send this message explicitly or by using the ListView_SetItem macro.

LVM_SETITEM wParam = 0; 
    lParam = (LPARAM)(const LVITEM FAR *) pitem;


Not used.


Pointer to an LVITEM structure that contains the new item attributes. The iItem and iSubItem members identify the item or subitem, and the mask member specifies which attributes to set.

TRUE indicates success. FALSE indicates failure.

If the mask member specifies the LVIF_TEXT value, the pszText member is the address of a null-terminated string and the cchTextMax member is ignored.

If the mask member specifies the LVIF_STATE value, the stateMask member specifies which item states to change and the state member contains the values for those states.

To set the attributes of a list-view item, set the iItem member of the LVITEM structure to the index of the item, and set the iSubItem member to zero. For an item, you can set the state, pszText, iImage, and lParam members of the LVITEM structure.
