I hope you are writing your code in WM_KEYDOWN event. is it true? Instead, you need to write code in PretranslateMessage event.  Catch WM_KEDOWN in pretranslatemessage. it should work. Here is the code :

BOOL CMyDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
CWnd* pWnd = GetFocus();
if(pWnd->GetDlgCtrlID() == IDC_COMBOBOX) {
    switch (pMsg->message)
     {
      case WM_KEYDOWN :
        switch(pMsg->wParam) {
                   case VK_RETURN :
              // write your code
                    break;
                }
               break;
     }
}
}

Hope this helps,
Namrata

Hi Berm,

Thanks for the points and grade.

I am also surprised why VK_RETURN is not working. In your winuser.h file, there should be following line :
#define VK_RETURN         0x0D
is it there? I am novice in MFC programming. so i will try to find out an answer.

Thanks again,
Namrata
