     (Added .Sort method) A purely graphical replacement/enhancement for the VB single-column listbox control. Standard vertical listbox behavior is consistently emulated, with the exception of a couple intricacies of list item selection in .MultiSelect = Extended mode. Control features an integrated graphical vertical scrollbar. Custom .FindIndex and .MouseOverIndex methods. Background can be a gradient or bitmap. Small bitmaps can be tiled or stretched to fit the display area. Each listitem can have an associated icon displayed next to it. Eight gradient color schemes can be selected via the .Theme property. Unicode display supported. Drag and drop capability incorporated. Numeric list sorting option. .DisplayFrom method allows you to display any part of the list through code. .RightToLeft allows smooth, natural operation for those whose written language goes from right to left. Loads lists several times faster than traditional VB listbox, depending on your system. Due to size of control, this is best used as a compiled .OCX. As always, constructive feedback welcome, votes appreciated.

Hi Mathew,
When I compile your sample and run it on "Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1 64bit" the program crashes.
I believe it is a DEP error in Paul's Subclassing code.
I notice Paul mentions a DEP fix in one of his Subclassing posts.
Any chance you could update the subclassing code in your User Control ?

PS I would attempt it myself, but I run scared whenever anyone mentions subclassing
