I have a problem with list box in visual c++. After å name search I show the results in a list box, but I don't know how I can pick out the right name?
I use xxx.GetText() but then I only get the name displayed in the list box.. I want to get the data that is linked to the name displayed in the list box. (The data linked to each name is adress, phone nr and so on...)
Is there a command that returns the line nr in the list box? Or returns a path to the data linked to the name I clicked on?

How was the data loaded into the listbox. Was the data associted with each entry using SetItemData or SetItemDataPtr if so then you can use GetItemData or GetItemDataPtr.

If you have the name can you walk the list of results (the ones you used to load the listbox) and find a match and then get the name, number etc

Sorry I can't be more exact without more info :)

Here is some code where the resource ID for your list box is IDC_LIST.

int nr;

nr=getitemtoget();

....

CListBox* pList;
pList=(CListBox*)GetDlgItem(IDC_LIST);

CString text;

pList->GetLBText(nr,text);

Now text is whatever text was on line nr or the list box. This also works for combo boxes.

Good Luck!
