I am getting the error "Method or Data Member not found" for ListSubItems whenever I try to compile the project. I have added the SP6 component, MSCOMCTL.OCX. But still I am getting this error. In the drop down ListSubItems is not available.

Public Function SetBoldToListItemInListView(lv As ListView, lvwItem As ListItem, bBold As Boolean) As Boolean
    Dim i As Integer
    On Error GoTo EH

    ResetBoldInListView Not bBold, lv  

    For i = 1 To lvwItem.ListSubItems.Count
        lvwItem.ListSubItems(i).Bold = True

    lvwItem.Bold = True 
    lvwItem.Selected = True 
    SetBoldToListItemInListView = True

    On Error Resume Next  
    Exit Function

    Error_Handler "Support / CheckUncheckItemsInListView"
    Resume ExitProc
End Function

What I have tried:

I have tried to compile multiple times. I have added the components :
Components : Desaware SpyWorks 6 Hook Control, Microsoft Calendar Control 2007, Microsoft Common Dialog Control 6.0(SP6), Microsoft FlexGrid Control 6.0(SP6), Microsoft Hierarchical FlexGrid Control 6.0(SP4) (OLEDB), Microsoft Masked Edit Control 6.0(SP3), Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control 6.0(SP6), Microsoft Windows Common Controls 5.0(SP2), Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6.0(SP6), Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 6.0(SP6),

Assuming the the library is built on the Win32 common controls, then LVITEMA (commctrl.h) | Microsoft Docs[^] does not contain a subitems count, although there is a field containing a column count. I suggest you refer to the documentation for the OCX control to check the correct property name.

Problem is with ListSubItems and not with Count

I checked in Object browser. I have COMCTLLIB and MSCOMCTLLIB ListItems. In MSCOMCTLLIB listitems class is having ListSubitems as member. But it is not there in COMCTLLIB. My project is taking ListItems class from COMCTLLIB. How can i change it to MSCOMCTLLIB as default?

Sorry, no idea. I have not used OCX libraries or VB6 for more than 20 years.
