Toggle Listview Headers Between Flat and 3-D

Whenever you want a ListView control with flat, nonclickable headers, use this code to toggle the header style. Flat headers don't give users the impression of sortability that 3-D headers do:

Private Declare Function GetWindowLong Lib _
	"user32" Alias "GetWindowLongA" (ByVal hWnd _
	As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib _
	"user32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hWnd _
	As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal _
	dwNewLong As Long) As Long

Private Const GWL_STYLE = (-16)
Private Const LVM_FIRST = &H1000
Private Const LVM_GETHEADER = (LVM_FIRST + 31)
Private Const HDS_BUTTONS = &H2

Call ToggleHeader(ListView1.hWnd)

Private Sub ToggleHeader(lsvhWnd As Long)
	Dim hHeader As Long, lStyle As Long
	hHeader = SendMessage(lsvhWnd, _
		LVM_GETHEADER, 0, ByVal 0&)
	lStyle = GetWindowLong(hHeader, GWL_STYLE)
	SetWindowLong hHeader, GWL_STYLE, lStyle Xor _
End Sub
