Use CreateEx instead of Create to apply extended Windows styles, specified by the Windows extended style preface WS_EX_.

CreateEx creates the control with the extended Windows styles specified by dwExStyle. To set extended styles specific to a control, call SetExtendedStyle. For example, use CreateEx to set such styles as WS_EX_CONTEXTHELP, but use SetExtendedStyle to set such styles as LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT. For more information, see the styles described in the topic Extended List View Styles in the Windows SDK.
