This message is sent by an application to find the first list box string that matches the string specified in the lpszFind parameter.
LB_FINDSTRINGEXACT wParam = (WPARAM) indexStart; lParam = (LPARAM)(LPCSTR) lpszFind;
- Zero-based index of the item before the first item to be searched. When the search reaches the bottom of the list box, it continues from the top of the list box back to the item specified by the indexStart parameter. If indexStart is –1, the entire list box is searched from the beginning.
- Long pointer to the null-terminated string to search for. This string can contain a complete filename, including the extension. The search is not case sensitive, so this string can contain any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters.
The zero-based index of the matching item indicates success. LB_ERR indicates an unsuccessful search.
If an application creates the list box with an owner-drawn style but without the LBS_HASSTRINGS style, LB_FINDSTRINGEXACT attempts to match the 32-bit value against the value of the lpszFind parameter.
OS Versions: Windows CE 1.0 and later.
