Combo Box that allows you to set some of the items to be bold


This is simple extension to the basic MFC combo box.


  1. Create a combo box in your dialog, make it "owner draw fixed" and "has strings".
  2. Then just add a member to the dialog for that combo, of type CComboBoxBold.
  3. Then use the functions of the CComboBoxBold as follows:
    CComboBoxBold::SetIcon(int itemId,int iconId);
    CComboBoxBols::SetItemBold(int itemId, BOOL bold);


BOOL CBoldComboDemoDlg::OnInitDialog()
    // Set the icon for this dialog. The framework does this automatically
    // when the application's main window is not a dialog
    SetIcon(m_hIcon, TRUE); // Set big icon
    SetIcon(m_hIcon, FALSE); // Set small icon
    // TODO: Add extra initialization here
    return TRUE; // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
