Ok, can anyone give me an example of a working default combo box? (By default i mean none user drawn)?
I am very new to Win32, and have only taken a few tutorials (i'll take many, if i can find ones that explain things well lol).
But with the Aid of MSDN, i am just getting lost.
I am creating my window with 'CreateWindow' just like a button i would create, i set the styles the way MSDN used as an example.
Now my problem.. or atleast i believe it to be so, is that i cannot add items to my ComboBox. I see nothing when i add my combo box, and i hope it is because there are no items held within it....CBS_SIMPLE, CBS_SORT, WS_VSCROLL, and WS_TABSTOP...
Now on the main ComboBox Overview on MSDN ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...comboboxes.asp )
it shows functions like CB_ADDSTRING.. or excuse me, "messages" (still not all together on that part, are they process by a ComboBox proc?), but beyond that i am still lost..
Anyway, help would be much appreciated.. MSDN has been making me frusterated, the fact that on their using a combo box page ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...comboboxes.asp ) i cannot find a simple example of their "Creating a Simple Combo Box" section. The only things they seem to show are spell checkers and user drawn junk (which i would like to grasp the basic box before user drawn).
Anyyway.. again.. please help, thanks!
