    Help with Combo Box that closes my program

    Hello, I just recently started programming with MFCs in visual C++ .NET

    So I have this program where you select an item from a combo box and it saves it as a string, the problem is that when I call UpdateData(FALSE) my program shuts down... does anyone have any idea why this could be? Im sorry about being so vague but as I said I just started and dont really know how it works.

    EDIR: It happens when I pass FALSE not TRUE.

    At this point, you know how it works way more than we do.

    Attach the source file that contains the UpdateData() statement.

    Its in the void CCRReaderGUIDlg::OnBnClickedConvert() method.
    But it will happen anytime I call UpdateData(FALSE) anywhere.

    The Combo Box stores the string in m_strAcolor.

    Could be that...

    UpdateData(FALSE) calls the your OnInitDialog().

    Your OnInitDialog() calls UpdateData(FALSE)
