Hello,

I learned to use ::GetClassName(...) API function to get the class name
for the active control.

Unfortunately, It retrieves the same class name for Edit controls and comboBoxes.

How can I distinguish between the two ?
Any API / MFC solution will be great.

Hi yairy,

If the classname is 'Edit' you should check classname of control's parent. If this is 'ComboBox' then it's a combo box. There are three different types of comboboxes:

- SIMPLE: a 'Edit' control and a 'ComboBox' control as sibling childs of a 'ComboBox' control

- DROPLIST: one single 'ComboBox' control.

- DROPDOWN: a single 'Edit' control as child of a 'ComboBox' control

hope that helps,
