The DDX_CBString function manages the transfer of CString data between the edit control of a combo box control in a dialog box, form view, or control view object and a CString data member of the dialog box, form view, or control view object.
void AFXAPI DDX_CBString( CDataExchange* pDX, int nIDC, CString& value );
- A pointer to a CDataExchange object. The framework supplies this object to establish the context of the data exchange, including its direction.
- The resource ID of the combo box control associated with the control property.
- A reference to a member variable of the dialog box, form view, or control view object with which data is exchanged.
When DDX_CBString is called, value is set to the current combo box selection. If no item is selected, value is set to a string of zero length.
Note If the combo box is a drop-down list box, the value exchanged is limited to 255 characters.
