Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Firstly please use the correct section of the forum when you posts - this is hardly a "super geeky" question.

Immediately below _GUICtrlListView_AddItem in the Help file you will find _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem - which is what you require. The Help file should always be your first port of call when looking for a solution.

Thank u so much@Melba23.

Sorry i was not aware about different sections of forum...

In continuation to this question, We use the library GRIT as a front end in one of the C++ project.

so, my Control class is "GwDrawableScrollObject".

i wrote the below lines to fetch number of rows in this multi column scroll list.

  $ListHandle = ControlGetHandle($windowtitle, $windowtext, $listcontrol)
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Information", "List handle: " & $ListHandle)
  Local $ItemCount  = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($ListHandle);

And getting zero as item count.

Any help is highly appreciated...

Thank you!
