Set alternate color

ListViews with a large number of rows and/or columns are much easier to read when the background color of the lines alternates. You might remember paper used for printouts in mainframe computer days. The color alternated between white and light green (or some other light colors) [[1]].
This can be done with ListViews as well:

Flag $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE is used to alternate the color of the listview item lines. Odd lines will get the color set for the Listview control, even lines will get the color set for the ListviewItem control.
Example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
GUICreate("listview items", 220, 250, 100, 200, -1)
Global $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1  |col2|col3  ", 10, 10, 200, 150)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; alternate between the listview background color and the listview item background color
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_AQUA) ; Set the background color for the listview
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item1|col12|col13", $idListview)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2|col22|col23", $idListview)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_TEAL) ; Set the background color for the listview item
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item3|col32|col33", $idListview)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Now|change|color", $idListview)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_RED) ; Set the background color for the listview item
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item5|col52|col53", $idListview)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item6|col62|col63", $idListview)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $COLOR_TEAL) ; Set the background color for the listview item
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Will result in:
Alternate ListView item lines.
