Finding a String in a Combo Box

The CBFindString()procedure searches for a string in a combo box by using the SendMessage() API function to find a specific entry in the list. This is much more efficient than searching using VB code:
 Declare Function SendMessage Lib "User" _ 
(ByVal hWnd As Integer, ByVal wMsg As Integer, _ 
ByVal wParam As Integer, lParam As Any) As Long 

Sub CBFindString (ctlEdit As Control, _ 
sSearch As String) 
Dim lPos As Long 

lPos = SendMessage(ctlEdit.hWnd, CB_FINDSTRING, _ 
0, ByVal sSearch) 
If lPos >= 0 Then 
ctlEdit.ListIndex = lPos 
End If 
End Sub
