How to loop through IDC_CONTROLS?

I have nine text fields, named IDC_COMBO1 to IDC_COMBO9 ( values are consecutive ).

I want to obtain the values of each and make one string.

I tried this:

char szComboBuffer[];

  // Loop through all COMBO controls,
     // build final string.
    for (int i = IDC_COMBO1; i <= IDC_COMBO9; ++i)
    {
            GetDlgItemText(gl_hWnd, i, szComboBuffer, 2);
    }
   

Open in new window


I chose 2 as last parameter because they might enter 2 digits in the text field.

If it worked as intended, szComboBuffer would hold the final string.

I am fairly new to this. Can someone help me finish this up? Thanks.

The easiest way would be to use a std::string for that, e.g.

#include <tchar.h>
#include <string>
usineg namespace std;
typedef basic_string<TCHAR> tstring;

TCHAR szComboBuffer[256];
tstring sAllCombos;

  // Loop through all COMBO controls,
     // build final string.
    for (int i = IDC_COMBO1; i <= IDC_COMBO9; ++i)
    {
            GetDlgItemText(gl_hWnd, i, szComboBuffer, 256);

            sAllCombos += sComboBuffer;
    }
   
    MessageBox(NULL,sAllCombos.c_str(),_T("All Together"),MB_OK)';
                                  

Open in new window

perfect! I ended up taking the long way, but I am rewriting using this. It's much more efficient. Again, I always learn from your solutions.
