The listbox message prefixes is LB_. What is the prefix for checkboxese? It isn''t CB because that stands for ComboBox and the winuser.h #defines isn''t commented and there''s lot of #defines there. Anyone know the prefix for CheckBox messages? ____________________ ____ ___ __ _ Enselic''s Corner - My site. Go test my game Spatra and see if you can beat it onto the Official Spatra Top 10.

Yeah it did send that message. How do I get what state the checkbox is in i.e. weather it is checked or not?

Looking at the number of topics by Enselic on basic Win32 programming, I would like to bring Charles Petzold''s excellent book into the limelight.

Programming Windows

After reading this, I found it spends more time on the shelf as I tend to only use reference manuals with win32 now.

Win32 Bible. It may be getting out of date but I still find it to be an excellent reference.

Check out windowsx.h (MSVC 6.0) lines 979 - 1190. There are a lot of macros to help in getting / setting attributes for several window types.
