I'm not having a lot of luck declaring a combo box in the class code for my dialog resource. I'm using VC++ ver 2.0, non-MFC, Win32 with SDK calls only. I'm making additions to a large and complex legacy program.
Without the combo box declared in the code, the dialog opens fine when the program launches, but when I add the combo box, I get the following two message boxes:
"Create Dialog failure"
Engineering Note ...
Dialog Creation Error
Be sure that there is a Dialog named, "" amongst the program's resources.
Then: an "OK" box:
Exiting due to Error
 Window Create
Error code-20: Create Dialog failure
When I click on the OK, the entire program exits. I've typed the three last lines of each above, letter-for-letter from the messages displayed.
In my class in my .h file, I've declared the following:
I added the following to my constructor in my .cpp file:
m_PhNoComboBox (this, WMM_IDC_MND_PHNOS_COMBO)
right after the constructor's function identifier and parameters line and the code builds, but gives that run-time error.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Should anything else be added?
Searching, I found nothing relevant about the error codes 8002 and 20.
Here's how I'm declaring the combo box in the resource description:
WMM_MY_DIALOG DIALOG DISCARDABLE 101, 36, 296, 201
STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP | WS_VISIBLE | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
