I'm trying to trap the enter key in the editbox portion of a combobox located in a toolbar. I've created my own combobox class from CCombobox and added handlers for keyup, keydown and wmchar to no avail. Could anyone advise ?

Try watching the messages that go through PreTranslateMessage, if a WM_CHAR,WM_KEYUP, or WM_KEYDOWN message is sent it will get it before the control has time to filter it out.

I am using this for all 'Edit' controls in my toolbars

BOOL CMyToolBar::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
  {
  if (pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
    {
    switch (pMsg->wParam)
      {
      case 27:  //Escape
       .......
      case 13: //Enter
      .......
      }
    }
  return CDialogBar::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
  }
