Hi,  hopefully my question title didn't lead you astray, so i'll try and be as clear as i can (with pictures :)

i have a window that is split using a CSplitterWnd which is setup like so:

+---+-------------------+
|     |                        |
| A  |        B              |
|     |                        |
|     |                        |
+---+-------------------+

A - is a Dialog with a baseclass of CFormView loaded from a resource file
B - is a CView (Doc/View)

On A i have a CComboBox named IDC_SOURCEDOOR.
when when i click on B, i'd like to add a string to that combobox.

eg.

CMyAppView::OnLButtonDown(....)
{
    CComboBox *cb;
    cb = (CComboBox*)GetDlgItem(IDC_SOURCEDOOR);
    cb->AddString("Hiya");
}

unfortunately this crashes, and i'm just confused.

Thanks for any info.

Try this

CMyAppView::OnLButtonDown(....)
{
   CYourFormView *pFMVw = (CYourFormView *)m_wndSplitter.GetPane(0, 0);
   CComboBox *cb;
   cb = (CComboBox*)pFMVw->GetDlgItem(IDC_SOURCEDOOR);
   cb->AddString("Hiya");
}


Good Luck

works great! i made the mistake of concentrating my searchs around dialogs, and not so much of the splitter itself, which is why i guess i was painfully unsuccessful.

thanks again,
Scott
