Not sure about this, but ItemData appears to be an extension of the standard Microsoft listbox.  The VB control provides this, above and beyond a listbox.  Also in C++, the object wrapper around the listbox appears to provide the itemdata property.

But...hang on for more comments..cause I could be wrong.

You can find examples that demonstrate using sendmessage and the listbox as well as many other great VB examples at the following URL:

Click Code Library on the left, List & Combo on the center left.

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long
Const LB_SETITEMDATA = &H19A

Assuming a listbox named "List1" has data, Index contains the index of the item and longData contains the value to be assinged to ItemData.  RC = Return Code.

RC = SendMessage(List1.hwnd, LB_SETITEMDATA, Index, longData)

Thanks very much, but....
i try this code using a combobox and i can put values in text using: rc = SendMessage(Combo1.hwnd, CB_ADDSTRING, 0, ByVal ja)
but i can't put any values on itemdata!!! In the two cases, rc is 0.
Can you help me? I give you the points, of course!
Regards

Sorry, that's because to set itemdata values in a combobox you must use

Const CB_SETITEMDATA = &H151

instead of the LB_SETITEMDATA
