The CMFCShellListCtrl class extends the functionality of the CMFCListCtrl Class by enabling your program to list Windows shell items. The display format that is used is like that of a list view for an Explorer window.

A CMFCShellTreeCtrl object can be associated with a CMFCShellListCtrl object to create a complete Explorer window. Then, selecting an item in the CMFCShellTreeCtrl will cause the CMFCShellListCtrl object to list the contents of the selected item.

The following example demonstrates how to create an object of the CMFCShellListCtrl class and how to display the parent folder of the currently displayed folder. This code snippet is part of the Explorer sample.


	CMFCShellListCtrl	m_wndList;


...


	CRect rectDummy (0, 0, 0, 0);
	// The this pointer points to CExplorerView class which extends the CView class.
	m_wndList.Create (WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | LVS_REPORT, rectDummy, this, 1);


...


	m_wndList.DisplayParentFolder ();
