Connecting a Combo and Edit box to a Text based or Access based Database
Posted on 2000-02-16
Here's what I have,
1) A dialog box with a NAME_COMBO box, and a SOURCE_EDIT box. Also I have an INSTALL_BUTTON.
2) A Text file, but I can deal with an Access file, I need it to have two 'tables' one called NAME and one called SOURCE. I perfer a text file but if I have to do an access .mdb file let me know. In the file the name is a frienly name and the source is the path to execute a .exe file. Ex.
Program 1 \\Folder\\Install.exe
Soooo, how do I get the COMBO drop down box in the dialog frame to pull up the names in the file, and then when it's selected, automaticly pull the source info for that name and put it in the Edit box in the dialog. That way I can use the Install button the run the .exe in the SOURCE_EDIT box using //.. system(varible) ..//
Did I explain that ok?
