ExplorerListView 1.5.0, ShellBrowserControls 1.3.0

I’ve released new versions of ExplorerListView and the ShellBrowserControls library. They come with a new feature called sub-item controls. It is an undocumented list view feature, that Windows Explorer uses to display the seizure of drives and the rating of media files. Now ShellListView can also use this feature.

If you use ExplorerListView as a plain list view, i.e. without ShellListView, you can also use this feature. But you should be warned that it’s not easy to use. Microsoft implemented this mainly for Windows Explorer, so it’s best used with the property system of the Windows Shell. Additionally the implementation is modern and uses data types that Visual Basic 6 can’t handle very well.
