Hi All,

environment: VC++1.5 and Win 3.11

I have a little big problem:

I have 3 ComboBox ( from 3rd party) in my CDialog.

Iwant to know when a user press a key, which key pressed and in which combobox?

I use this code to know which combobox has a focus:

::GetDlgCtrlID(::GetFocus())

This code works fine with Cedit control and not with combobox.

In the case of combobox this code return the value : 1001 which doesn't correspond
with the reel control ID of these combobox.
what can i do?


In other side i don't know how to retrieve the text typed in these combobox.

in the case of CEdit control this code works fine:

CWnd *pEditbox;
pEditbox = GetDlgItem(ID);
GotoDlgCtrl(pEditbox);
CEdit * pEditCtrl = (CEdit *)pEditbox;
pEditCtrl->SetSel(-1);
pEditCtrl->GetWindowText(word,30);

is it possible to use similar code by replacing the CEdit by CComboBox???
This is will be possible if i know how to retreive the ID number of the
combobox as explained above.

thanks;

1. I want to know when a user press a key, which key pressed and in which combobox?
// get the three combobox window pointers
CWnd *pcbox1 = GetDlgItem(ID1);
CWnd *pcbox2 = GetDlgItem(ID2);
CWnd *pcbox3 = GetDlgItem(ID3);

// get the focus window pointer
CWnd *pEdit = CWnd::GetFocus();

if (pEdit == pcbox1 || pcbox1->IsChild(pEdit))
    // combobox 1
if (pEdit == pcbox2 || pcbox2->IsChild(pEdit))
    // combobox 2
if (pEdit == pcbox3 || pcbox3->IsChild(pEdit))
    // combobox 3


2. How to retrieve the text typed in these combobox.
CWnd *pEdit = CWnd::GetFocus();
if (pEdit != NULL)
    pEdit->GetWindowText(word,30);
