Determine the number of visible items in a ListView control

Microsoft “forgot” to provide the ListView control with the GetVisibleCount property, as it did, for example, with the TreeView control. However, getting this information is as easy as sending a message to the control:

Private Const LVM_FIRST = &H1000Private Const LVM_GETCOUNTPERPAGE = (LVM_FIRST + 40)Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal _    hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, _    lParam As Any) As Long' Return the number of visible items in a ListView controlPrivate Function ListViewGetVisibleCount(LV As ListView) As Long   ListViewGetVisibleCount = SendMessage(LV.hwnd, LVM_GETCOUNTPERPAGE, 0&, _       ByVal 0&)End Function
