    Getting the index of a list box to show in a msgbox

    PHP Code:
                    case IDC_LISTBOX_TEXT:
                    {
                        switch(
    HIWORD(wParam))
                        {
                            case 
    LBN_SELCHANGE:
                            {
    int index = (int)SendMessage(windowLB_GETCURSEL00);
    //I would convert index to a string here right..
    MessageBox(NULL"The Index Is!"LbIndexStringMB_OK MB_USERICON);
                            }
                        }
                    }
                    break; 
    How do I conver Index to a string so I can show the index in a msg box?

    Look into:
    a) FAQ
    b) std::stringstream
    c) itoa()
    d) ultoa()
    Just Google It. √

    Or
    char lbText[4];
    sprintf(lbText,"%d",index);

    Code:
    char LbIndexString[512];
    SendMessage(hwndList,LB_GETTEXT,index,(WPARAM)LbIndexString);

    Not sure why it put a space in that code. It's supposed to read (WPARAM)LbIndexString
