The listview initially appears white and becomes colored only after it is placed below another window. (I'm using XP SP3.)


PS:  I don't own the script, Got this somewhere else in this site but I failed to save the source, sorry.

Move the GUIRegisterMsg lines to before the GUISetState line - that way the handlers can do the colouring as the GUI is first displayed. As it is they only take affect on the first redraw after the initial display.
