Hello! I have a problem with auto-selecting entries in a combo-box. The thing is: the user does some input into the combo-box, which sends an CBN_EDITCHANGE Message after each input. I catch this message and first get the input, then i try to find if the combo-box-list holds item with equivalent beginning (CB_FINDSTRING). If yes, then this item with the equivalent beginning should be selected.

That works so far, BUT: After the item with the equivalent beginning has been selected, i too want to set the selection-cursor of course! Meaning, that if the user wrote 4 characters, all characters behind 4 should be selected. There is the CB_SETEDITSEL message exactly for this purpose, and it even returns TRUE but the text doesn't get selected. Instead the cursor is set to the end of the string.

I tried to use SetFocus before i fire CB_SETEDITSEL, but didn't work (of course Wink. Here's the part of my program + the definition of MAKELPARAM, which is used as lparam by CB_SETEDITSEL. Thanks for all help!

Code:
        invoke  GetDlgItemText,[hwnddlg],\  ; Get the input
                IDCB_AUGE,auge,40h
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\    ; Find matching cb-item
                CB_FINDSTRING,0,auge        
        cmp     eax,CB_ERR
        je      processedauf
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\       ; select matching cb-item
                CB_SETCURSEL,eax,0
        mov     word[map.wLow],0
        mov     word[map.wHigh],3
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\
                CB_SETEDITSEL,0,map
        cmp     eax,TRUE
        jne     processedauf
    

Code:
struct MAKELPARAM
    wLow           rb  2
    wHigh          rb  2
ends
    


P.S.: shoorick if you read that - such a feature (auto-select) would be great in the shoolib me believes. I'm not using your lib yet cause i'm still working on the old application, but am looking forward!

invoke SendMessage,[hauge],CB_SETEDITSEL,0,map

should be:
Quote:
invoke SendMessage,[hauge],CB_SETEDITSEL,0,[map]


Or, better, use shl instruction to make the LPARAM value from low and hi index.

Damn me, just that simple: instead of delivering a pointer to the MAKELPARAM-structure, you have to push the contents of MAKELPARAM when sending the CB_SETEDITSEL-message.

So the program now looks like this:
Code:
        invoke  GetDlgItemText,[hwnddlg],\  ; Get input
                IDCB_AUGE,auge,40h
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\       ; Current cursor pos
                CB_GETEDITSEL,map,map+2
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\       ; similar string in cb-list?
                CB_FINDSTRING,0,auge       
        cmp     eax,CB_ERR
        je      processedauf
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\       ; select similar string
                CB_SETCURSEL,eax,0
        mov     word[map.wHigh],-1          ; set the end-position of the sel
        invoke  SendMessage,[hauge],\
                CB_SETEDITSEL,0,[map]
