I am trying to insert a ComboBox control in a ToolBar using Borland C++ 4.0, without any success.
Here's what the code looks like:

// starting code
TDecoratedFrame *frame;
TControlBar *cb;
...
TComboBox *combo = new TComboBox(frame, ID_COMBO);
TControlGadget *cg = new TControlGadget(*combo);
cb->Insert( *cg );

This code does nothing, in other words the program works as it should except no ComboBox is shown anywhere.
Please help me, if you can!

Supposed in InitMainWindow()

for instance :
......
 cb = new TControlBar( frame );
  frame->Insert(*cb, TDecoratedFrame::Top);

  // Create the combobox
  //
  combo = new TComboBox( 0 , ID_COMBO, 0, 0, 100, 100, CBS_DROPDOWN, 0);
     // or whatever you want

  TControlGadget* cg = new TControlGadget(*combo);
  cb->Insert(*combo);


That should do the job
