 Left Pane Explorer-Like Thumb Paint events

Hi there

Ive written an app that implements windows explorer like
In order to improve its performance i want to be able to handle scroll
events for the subclassed ListView control that i have created.

At the moment the control paint thumbs from top to bottom for every
file in the list. This becomes unacceptable in terms of memory and
responsiveness after about 25 files. I want to be able to paint the
thumbs according to position in the List (which i could access though
Top Item property) but i need an event source and i cant find one.

There is no OnScroll event for the ListView and i cant find a similar
"trigger" such as OnPositionChanged, etc to allow me to clean up
previously painted thumbs and redraw new (visible) thumbs.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
