Listview Control Colors

Listview Control Colors

Question:
I have a number of bitmaps displayed in the Listview control. However the colors are limited and are very different when they are displayed in a graphics program.

Is there a fix for this?

Answer:
You need to make sure that you keep the number of colors in each image to a minimum. Either use the 16 basic Windows colors or make sure all your images share the same palette.

Also make sure that you do not have the transparency setting as a color within your image, which would cause parts of your image to disappear. If you are using gray, make sure the gray used in your images is different by 1.
