2 Freeware MFC icon selection combo box classes
  • Download source files - 19 Kb
  • Introduction

    An example of what the classes look like is shown below:

    Sample Image


    • The classes are derived from CComboBox and as such derive most of their behavior from these base classes i.e. they do not use any low level GDI code which may have lots of bugs in it or may not work on the next release of Windows.
    • The classes are fully Unicode compliant and include Unicode built options in the workspace file for the demo app.
    • All code compiles cleanly at warning level 4.

    The source zip file contains the IconComboBox source code and a simple test program to exercise the class.


    V1.0 (25th August 1998)
    • Initial public release.

    V1.01 (12th September 1998)

    • Removed some files from the workspace which were not being used.
    • Updated workspace to use folders.
    • Added AddString(), InsertString() & DeleteString() functions. These functions ASSERT to ensure that the icon combo box operates correctly.
    • Added DeleteIcon() function. This should be called instead of DeleteString().
    • Modified internal implementation of InsertIcon() & AddIcon() for both classes.
    • Tidied up some of the help documentation.
