In ASP, I use Dictionary object and "filter" the Keys with a wildcard and I get all the items which has the value  I give. I use the command Filter(array,value...)

Now, I use CMapStringToString inside my VC6++ application for storing Key Value pairs. I need to filter the items which has common text on the key field. How do I do this efficiently?
Thanks
Eugene

I don't think there is any functionality to do that for you.

You are likely to have to iterate through each member and check if it will be a match.  There is functionality to return pointers to the strings (more efficient than returning a string value) that would be of help.

Extract from help files

{
    // ...

    typedef CMapStringToString CMyMap;

    CMyMap myMap;
    CString myStr[4]={"One", "Two", "Three", "Four"};
    CMyMap::CPair* pCurVal;

    myMap.InitHashTable( 257 );

    // Add 4 elements to the map.
    myMap.SetAt(myStr[0], "Odd");
    myMap.SetAt(myStr[1], "Even");
    myMap.SetAt(myStr[2], "Odd");
    myMap.SetAt(myStr[3], "Even");

    pCurVal= myMap.PGetFirstAssoc( );                 <<<---------
    while (pCurVal != NULL)
    {
           printf_s("Current key value at %s: %s\n",
                    pCurVal->key, pCurVal->value);
           pCurVal= myMap.PGetNextAssoc(pCurVal);                <<<---------
    }

    // ...
}

Hi
I still think there must be a way. Because, the "filter" command in ASP Script works efficiently. Save way, there must be some way to achive this.
Below is a sample I am doing on ASP Script

     KeyArr= Filter(MyKeys,"wildcard",true,vbTextCompare)      

I belive there must be a way out in MFC also.
Regards
Eugene

Hi
I am just trying the maximum efficient way. If there are no other way than this, I can go with this.

The 'filter' in ASP may well work but that isn't necessarily using a CMapStringToString.
You are comparing chalk with cheese
