I try to create a combobox with a second button near the arrow like the searching in outlook 2007.

Is it possible ?

The CExtComboBox class implements a skinned combo box common control with some additional features like text auto completion. But it uses the layout of combo box internal parts provided by original combo box common control. At this moment, it’s not possible to inject an additional button into the CExtComboBox control. That’s why the CExtDateTimeWnd and CExtDurationWnd controls containing more than one buttons are not combo box based: they are written from scratch. We can regard your message as a feature request. Right now you can try some temporarily solution. For instance, you can create some small push button near the combo box.
