How do you set the properties of a combo box so it does not sort the items which you add to it using the
AddString(..) function, but displays them in the drop-down list in the order by which you added them to the combo box?

I already tried that and I can't get it to work... below is the code I'm trying but it doesn't
do it. The variable m_adaptationTypeCtrl is a CComboBox mapped to the control in the
dialog that I want to be non-sorted. ?

      m_adaptationTypeCtrl.ModifyStyle(CBS_SORT, 0, 0);
      UpdateData(false);

I don't understand why it isn't working, any help would be appreciated.

I seem to recall that although the sort style is removed, that internally the combo box does not change.  I think your answer is to create a new combo box without the sort property (in the same location as the first one), copy the strings in and destroy the original.  It's ugly I know, but I don't see another answer.
