CB_SHOWDROPDOWN message is not sent to you: you send it to the control to tell it to drop down.

Look for CBN_DROPDOWN message if you want to know when the combo is about to be dropped by the user.

It is sent to the parent of the control by Windows as a WM_COMMAND message with CBN_DROPDOWN message.

MFC reflects it to the control.  Look for "=CBN_DROPDOWN" in the messages part of the class wizard
