How to set CBS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style programmatically !

Hi,

How can I programmatically set the CBS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style of my derived combobox !

I have try to set it in the PreSubclassWindow function but it doesn't works.

In general, how to set all these styles when the combobox is created (CBS_HASSTRING, CBS_SORT, ...).

My class must have the CBS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style to work, and want to do this at creation without specifiying it in the resource.

Hi!
IMHO it isn`t possible since this style is 'creation time style' that is it takes action only when control have being created.
you can use ASSERT to inform user set needed style (in the PreSubclass.. method) or delete existing control and recreate new one with needed style.

I think that there is no way to switch the CBS_SORT style without deleting control and recreating it ?

In your derived class, override the Create fn. Copy the code from the MFC source code.  Set the styles you want there.
