  • Trap keys in DDT combo

    I'm trying to trap keys in a DDT dialog with a subclassed ComboBox. What I would like, is that if the combobox has focus, users are able to use the INS/DEL key to insert or delete items from the combobox. Subclassing works fine with edit controls and listboxes, but somehow not with combo's. (You can only intercept %WM_ENTER/%WM_ESC/%WM_TAB/etc..) Edit controls and Listboxes generate a %WM_KEYDOWN, but combo's don't.
    Regards,

      Thanks,
      I've found that adding the %CBS_SIMPLE style to the combobox also makes it generate key events...
