    Help with listbox items

    lets say i have an item in listbox1 with the text "sample" and an item in listbox2 with the text "sample2". How would i make "sample" equal "sample2"?


    Basically i have a directory of a file in listbox2 that is not visable, i want the listbox2 to display some text that equals the same text on the other listbox.

    ~Hope i made sense.

    Hi,

    using MFC you could do this:

    Code:
    BOOL EqualEntriesInListboxes(CDialog* pDlg, UINT idListBox1, UINT idListBox2)
    {
        if (pDlg)
        {
            CListBox* pLB1 = (CListBox*) pDlg->GetDlgItem(idListBox1);
            CListBox* pLB2 = (CListBox*) pDlg->GetDlgItem(idListBox2);
            if (pLB1 && pLB2)
            {
                pLB2->ResetContent();
                int iCount = pLB1->GetCount();
                if (iCount)
                {
                    int i=0;
                    CString szBuffer;
                    for (i=0; i<iCount; i++)
                    {
                        pLB1->GetText(i, szBuffer);
                        pLB2->AddString(szBuffer);
                    }
                }
                return TRUE;
            }
        }
        return FALSE;
    }
    The function iterates through all the entries of a listbox and adds all entries (strings) to the second listbox.
    Code:
    pLB2->ResetContent();
    is necessary, because otherwise the strings will be added.

    With regards

    It didn't to me. ProgramArtist gave you a way to make two listboxes contain identical strings, but it doesn't seem like that's what you're asking.

    Your program would be loading up the listboxes, so why not just load what you want? I'm confused.
