    Exclamation Prob. with Combo Box in VC++

    I have made a Dialog Box and placed a ComboBox control on it. I have also given the list of options in the Data tab of its properties window. Yet, when i run my program, the Drop Down options i have entered in the Data tab do not appear on clicking on the control.

    you have to add them at runtime.

    look for the CB_ADDSTRING or CBEM_INSERTITEM (depending on if you are using a ComboBox or a ComboBoxEx32)... they'll solve your problems.

    <edit>
    BTW, this is a windows question, not a C++ question. PLease make sure you post in the right forum.... it'll save you getting flamed in the future.

    good luck!
