I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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:

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

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

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


instead of the LB_SETITEMDATA
