After you create a list box with the CreateWindow() API, you can change the list box from a single selection to a multiple selection by doing the following:

  1. Create two hidden list boxes in the .RC file.
  2. During the WM_INITDIALOG routine, display one of the boxes.
  3. Change between the two by making one hidden and the other one visible using the ShowWindow function.
