    Question Adding data to list boxes

    Is there a way I can dynamically add and remove data items to the list box part of a combo box from within an application?
    many thanks Bazz

    You can use SendMessage or SendDlgItemMessage(if you are using a dialogbox)

    example:
    SendDlgItemMessage(hDlg,IDC_COMBO,CB_ADDSTRING,0,( LPARAM)text);

    and to select the default value you can use
    SendDlgItemMessage(hDlg,IDC_COMBO,CB_SELECTSTRING,-1,(LPARAM)text);


    hope this helps
