List Control That Allows Dynamic Modification for Size of Icons

      This article describes a list control that allows applications
to dynamically modify the sizes of the icons that the list is
displaying.  This change can be indicated by the application through
the use of a message.

      Current list controls do not support the changing of the size
of the icons to be listed.  Depending on the resolution of the color
monitor the application may wish to influence the size of the icons
in a list.

      The solution provided allows the application the ability to
change the current size of icons being displayed in the list.  The
list control will keep an icon bitmap for each item in list.  On
notification (by message) of size change, the list control will
redraw the icons using the new size passed in the message.
