Is there something that I can use mimics a Listview in Tile View in Windows?

Code: [Select]
Tile View Version 6 and later. Specified by passing LV_VIEW_TILE with LVM_SETVIEW. Each item appears as a full-sized icon with a label of one or more lines beside it.
Probably you need to override the  method of the LCL that does this call. I can vaguely remember that many Delphi controls that override styles to enable vista styles overrode CreateParams(), maybe a good place to start.

Manifests may be involved, as well as the size of the lvitems record.
