How to align to the right the text in a CExtComboBox ?


Technical Support Dec 16, 2009 - 10:37 AM

The editor window is the edit common control which is the single child of the combo box window. I.e. ::GetWindow( hWndComboBox, GW_CHILD ) code returns the HWND handle of the edit control and you can apply the ES_RIGHT style to it.

You should use the owner draw combo box. Please override the CExtComboBoxBase::DrawItem() virtual method, copy the source code from the original method and modify the text painting code snippet.

ok but I want to align the text in the Cedit of the cextcombobox not the text in the menu.
