I have a list box control in a dialog box, which is associated with  CPropertyPage class.I have selected "Multiple Selection".I have associated a CString variable for the listbox through class wizard.Now the prblem is, when ever I click the tab of the next property page (i.e On killing this property page), I see a crash.When I go through the debugger I come to know that the "LB_GETTEXTLEN" message is sent(in MFC's Source DLGDATA.CPP) an the return value is -1.Can any one help me to resolve the crash?

I'm almost sure that you can't handle a multi-select listbox
with a CString. The data exchange process is not implemented.
You have to do it yourself either in DoDataExchange() or
in OnKillActive()/OnSetActive() of your property page.

You have to use GetSelCount() and GetSelItem() to get each
selected item and store them in a list or whatever you need

Thanks for the reply cnasarre! Your answer is certainly acceptable.It is the same thing even I thought of.But I was not sure.
By the way, I still leave the question open for answering so that some one who is doubly sure can give it a shot.
Once again thanks a lot for replying cnasarre!
