ComboBox_GetLBText macro

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

Syntax


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

Parameters

hwndCtl

Type: HWND

A handle to the control.

index

The zero-based index of the item.

lpszBuffer
