// this will retrieve the text at the given index.
CString strValue;
int index;

// CboBox is a control variable assigned to your CComboBox control

index = CboBox.GetCurSel();
CboBox.GetLBText(index, strValue);

if you want the text as soon as the item is selected use the

CBN_SELCHANGE
message and use the code above.

If you need any further help with it let me know...
