C / C++ / MFC
|I have a combobox in a mfc application. I created it at runtime with following code -
if (!m_sortBox.Create(WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, rect, this, eSortBox))
Now the requirements, if user is selecting an item from combobox like , if combo box have focus & user is pressing up/down arrow key, it should NOT update the data.
If user is pressing enter key after selecting a item, it should update data.
So i didn't handled OnSelchange here.
For enter key requirement, I checked enter key event in preTranslateMsg & checking if combo box have focus, it should trigger the function, who will eventually update the data.
if (pMsg->message == WM_CHAR && pMsg->wParam == VK_RETURN)
CWnd pActiveWnd = CWnd::FromHandle(GetFocus()->GetSafeHwnd());
CWnd pcbSortBoxWnd = CWnd::FromHandle(m_sortBox.GetSafeHwnd());
//If sort combo box has focus and user press Enter key, it should trigger OnComboSelChange event
//Eventually it will update the data.
if (pcbSortBoxWnd == pActiveWnd)
I also handled ON_CBN_CLOSEUP(eSortBox, OnSortChange)
So that mouse functionality will work(because with mouse, data should get update)
Now my logic is working but its crashing in some cases.
Like - If I press Alt + Down arrow key, which will expand combobox, I select an item(with help of arrow keys) and press enter.
Sometimes its getting crash.
please help me out.
