Im trying to write to the list box "Win_1" with SendMessage() but im doing
something wrong.

Let's see what's wrong here.

1. You have an error on line 42 of your code. That is, we're not
psychic. Why do you think something is wrong? See FAQ 5.8
http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/how-to-post.html#faq-5.8

2. You have posted to the wrong newsgroup. The C++ language knows
nothing about SendMessage or "list boxes". You have a question
about the Win32 API, not the C++ language. See FAQ 5.9
http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/how-to-post.html#faq-5.9
or try a newsgroup with "windows" in its name.
