Differentiate columns with color on list box

Hi everyone

I'm just wondering is there a way to highlight one specific column with a different color than the rest of the list box columns? I've played around with it but nothing worked so I'm just wondering is this even possible? I set the list box to one color but is there a way to just make one column a different one? Thank you

No its not possible but I've often wished it was...

Use a continuous form instead. For example:
