Is it possible to define the columns in a Report Style ListView using a resource editor? That is, do the columns have to be defined in code? This seems to be the case for ooDialog, but I just wondered if it's also true for all window/dialog layout/definition tools.
 
No, it is not possible to define the columns for a list view in a resource editor.  The individuall columns have to be inserted through code. 
 
The way it is done in ooDialog, is the same way it is done in a C / C++ application.  That is, in initDialog insert the desired columns.  In a C / C++ application, the programmer would handle the WM_INITDIALOG message and insert the columns there, using the same Win32 API that ooDialog uses for inserting columns.
