combobox problem

We are trying to improve a half-working software.
We wanted to add a new combo box to an existing dialog box, and connected it to the dialog's class.
But every time we do this - we cannot see the ID of our new combo box in the class wizard of the whole dialog box - so that we cannot create a function that will
be called after the user has selected an item from the dialog box.

The whole idea is that when you choose something from the combo box, it will put text inside a list box that is currenty below it.

Can you please help me? what exactly should I do and why does this happen (the fact that I cannot see the id of the combo box in the list of the items of the class)
How will I see the new combo box's id in this list?

Hi again,

Now I have a similar problem (I added an entry to a menu) but now even deleting the .clw file doesn't help. I just can't add a new function.
What do I do this time?

Commented:
Don't use the class Wizard, add the function manually.
For finding out what function to add create another temporary project and add a similar control or menu there and find out what changes class wizard makes to the code.
