    GetDlgItemText with a listbox

    Hi,

    I am trying to retrive the text that is located in a listbox. I am using:

    Code:
    GetDlgItemText(dlghwnd, LV_Course, EDC, 200);
    where LV_Course is my listbox and EDC is the string that is suppose to store the text. However when I run my program, EDC returns nothing.

    Any ideas?

    You could check the return value to see if the function succeeded.
    Code:
    if (GetDlgItemText(dlghwnd, LV_Course, EDC, 200) == 0)
    {
       cout << "Unable to retrieve item." << endl;
    }
    If it failed, check to be sure EDC is a char buffer.
