property Items.ItemCount as Long

Retrieves the number of items.

 TypeDescription 
   Long A long value that indicates the number of items into Items collection.  

The ItemCount property gets the number of items in the control. Use the VisibleItemCount property to specify the number of visible items in the list. Use the ItemByIndex property to get the handle of the item giving its index. Use ChildCount to get the number of child items giving an item. Use the ItemChild property to get the first child item. Use the FirstVisibleItem property to get the first visible item. Use the NextVisibleItem property to get the next visible item. The NextSiblingItem property retrieves the next sibling of the item in the parent's child list. Use the ItemPosition property to change the item's position. Use the AddItem, InsertItem, PutItems or DataSource property to add new items to the control.

The following VB sample enumerates all items in the control:

Dim i As Long, n As Long
With ComboBox1.Items
    n = .ItemCount
    For i = 0 To n - 1
        Debug.Print .ItemByIndex(i)
    Next
End With

#include "Items.h"
CItems items = m_combobox.GetItems();
COleVariant vtMissing; V_VT( &vtMissing ) = VT_ERROR;
for ( long i = 0; i < items.GetItemCount(); i++ )
{
	COleVariant vtItem( items.GetItemByIndex( i ) ), vtColumn( long(0) );
	CString strCaption = V2S( &items.GetCellCaption( vtItem, vtColumn ) ), strOutput;
	strOutput.Format( "Cell: '%s'\n", strCaption );
	OutputDebugString( strOutput );
