ListBox_GetText macro

Gets a string from a list box. You can use this macro or send the LB_GETTEXT message explicitly.

Syntax


int ListBox_GetText(
  HWND hwndCtl,
  int index,
  LPCTSTR lpszBuffer
);

Parameters

hwndCtl

Type: HWND

A handle to the control.

index

Type: int

The zero-based index of the item.

lpszBuffer

Type: LPCTSTR

A pointer to the buffer that will receive the string. The buffer must have sufficient space for the string and a terminating null character. Before allocating the buffer, you can call ListBox_GetTextLen to retrieve the length of the string.
