With an ownerdraw CListCtrl you would typically override the DrawItem method
to do your own drawing. And not OnPaint.

I would have to see some code to see what you are doing.

I have a class derived from CListCtrl with ownerdraw property set and I am
doing all my painting by myself.

OnPaint that I wrote is called by problem and everything works fine except
that the first item in the list has paint problem.

Sometimes its not highlighted when selected and sometimes it remains
highlighted even though its not selected.
I am erasing the background in my OnPaint itself and looks llike somehow
rect for first item in the list is not invalidated. this is just a refresh
issue as if I scroll and see the list problem just goes away.

Is there anyway to invalidate and forcefully paint the complete area of
listctrl? I am calling following to erase everything but its not doing
what it should.

dc.FillRect(&clientRect, &CBrush(RGB(255, 255, 255)));
