    How do I make it wait for user input

    Hey,

    I have this loop that will transfer a selected item from a listbox to an edit box. Every iteration it takes the same selected item from the list and puts it into the next edit box. I want it to wait for the user to select another item in the listbox before it copies it into the edit box. Every iteration it should wait for user input (selection). How do I do that?

    Here's what I got:
    Code:
    CString str;
    	CListBox* pGetList[512];
    	
    	for(i=0; i<10; i++)
    	{
    		pGetList[i] = (CListBox*) GetDlgItem(IDC_LIST1);
    	
    		pGetList[i]->GetText((pGetList[i]->GetCurSel()),str);
    
    		CWnd* pWnd = txtbox[i]; 
    		pWnd->SetWindowText(str);
    	}

    Windows is event driven. Clicking on a item in a listbox is an event. Handle the event to fill the editboxes. The event you want is LBN_SELCHANGE. Create a variable to track how many clicks have been processed instead of trying to loop 10 time.
