I am using CExtComboBox with only text strings entries. Customers love the ability to press the first letter of a list entry and jump to the first entry in the list with a letter match (I.e., pressing ’a’ takes you to the first entry with an ’a’ as its first character).

With this version of the control I somehow lost that native ability to do that (yes it did with MFC controls). I researched and found something on using SORT as setting in the control and that behavior is native. That didn’t work so maybe that’s only relative to MFC controls. I see some discussions of overriding the PretranslateMsg() but before I reproduce a built-in behavior I want to know that I am not missing something.

Thank you.
