I have a combobox, with a member variable m_SC, type: CCombobox.

How can I access the selected item and use it as a CString??

I thought it was something like:
CString string=m_SC.GetEditSel;

or
CString string = m_SC.GetItemData(0);

but none of them work.

Hi,
First of all, you can add member variable of CString type and associate it with this ComboBox. Otherwise you can use m_SC.GetWindowText(str);

Hi caiman23,

CString string;
int item = m_SC.GetCurSel();
if ( item != CB_ERR )
{
 m_SC.GetLBText( item, string );
}

OK, thank you. So I use this code:

void CFhgDlg::OnSelchangeSc()
{
      UpdateData(FALSE);
      CString str;
      m_SC.GetWindowText(str);
      MessageBox(str);
}

But what I get in str is the OLD value of the combobox, not the new one -which I need in fact-

So, for instance, I have these elements in my combobox:

       Spring
       Summer  (Selected)
       Autumn
       Winter

"Summer" is selected. When I change to "Winter" and use the above code, I get in my MessageBox "Summer"... ??????
