CStringList or CStringArray
Posted on 1997-07-23
This should be a simple question using VC++ 4.2 but something isn't working too well. I have to transfer data from a listbox before it closes, to use it in the calling class. I've jumped in at OnOK and have attempted to put everything into a CStringList. This was done in many ways, but none worked.
The one that seemed to be fail proof was to go to the calling class and insert the string in the CStringList there, within that class. It inserts it fine (i.e. AddTail). However, once the calling Dialog closes I find the CStringList is empty, though the insertion had no problems. Remember, the dialog is in another class, so the fact that it closes should not affect the different class the CStringList is in. Though this seems to make sense it certainly doesn't work.
I've used a CStringList as I don't know how many elements will be in the list. Maybe a CStringArray is a better solution. Or maybe you have another suggestion.
Thanks for your much needed wisdom!
