EVC++: How to get a directory listing?

Unlike its counterpart, eVC++ doesn't seem to support the following:

SendMessage(hCombobox, CB_DIR, (WPARAM)DDL_DIRECTORY | DDL_EXCLUSIVE, (LPARAM)FolderName);

The following are "undeclared identifiers":
CB_DIR
DDL_DIRECTORY
DDL_EXCLUSIVE

I am just looking for a way to get a directory/file listing. It does not necessarily have to involve a combo/list box, merely provide me with a directory listing. I'll change the number of points depending on the complexity of the answer. Thanks in advance.

I'm more looking for something which will give a string, array, or combo/list box a list of the folders and files in a specified path.

      WIN32_FIND_DATA FileData;
      HANDLE handle = FindFirstFile(L"*", &FileData);
      BOOL result = (handle!=INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE ? TRUE : FALSE);

      while( result == TRUE ){
                  CString file = FileData.cFileName;
                  ...
                  result = FindNextFile(handle, &FileData);
         }
         FindClose(handle);

Sorry, the question was not resolved, and I forgot to post anything. I'll dole out points to junges, seeming as he helped the most. The code still returned more errors than I know what to do with, but I will continue working on it.
