    Re: Can't set text in Edit Box of ComboBox

    I'm not convinced you are.

    should have different window handle values. SendMessage should be the combo handle and ComboBox_SetText should be the edit handle (assuming that as you state ComboBox_SetText is equivalent to SetWindowText). It might be useful to post the code for ComboBox_SetText. Also you are not checking the return values of ComboBox_SetText to see if an error occured.
    hello 2kaud

    Lets say this SendMessage is working in CBN_SELCHANGE according to you(I have tried from my side its not working), but after this CBN_SELCHANGE returns, the value in edit box will be set as current selection.
    How should i stop it to set it current selection from list box(I know its normal behaviour of combo box but thats not working in my case).

    I could do a lot of things that basically possible, but I never do that because it will confuse my customers.

    May I offer you a compromise?
    Have a simple drop-down box for your template. When user makes a selection - use it to construct your Subject field in ANOTHER edit box.
