View Full Version : Need help with ComboBox

March 11th, 2003, 03:24

hDlgItem = GetDlgItem(hwnd, IDC_CONFIG_COMBODEVICES);
SendMessage(hDlgItem, CB_ADDSTRING, 0, (LPARAM)"test");

when I click on the Combo box I can't see no items at all

if I use CB_GETCOUNT it returns 1 so the item is actually in the list item

anyone has a suggestion?

I used the same code in another application and it shows the items but the arrows to scroll up and down are SO small

does anyone know why I don't get the same results with the same code? and how should i fix this ?

In the resource editor if you push the downarrow the dropdown list appears and you can define its length.

for (i=0; i<CHARACTER_DATA; i++)
if (memcard_info.characters[i] != 0xFF)
SendMessage(GetDlgItem(hDlg, IDC_LIST_CHARACTERS), LB_ADDSTRING, 0, (LPARAM)characters[memcard_info.characters[i]]);

You should use something like that to initialize the box.
