Version 4.70 of Comctl32.dll introduced the concept of custom draw, which allows an application greater flexibility in customizing a control's appearance without having to implement full owner-draw. Windows Common Controls such as List-View, Tree-View, Tab, and ToolTip support custom draw.

CustDTv.exe is a sample that demonstrates using custom draw in a Tree-View control to specify the text color for each item, specify a font for each item, and display text adjacent to the item text.
