ComboBox problem

I have MyComboBox owner-draw control.
In OnDropDown I do SetCurSel(-1), because I want to scroll my window by myself. Then I post my user message.
I select an item in my user message (works OK), but after UserMessage has finished, item is unselected!!!! How could I select an item in UserMessage function?
I can't use SetCurSel or SetTopIndex because they autoscroll window.
Thanks all!

void CMyComboBox::OnDropdown()
{
   ...
   SetCurSel(-1);
   PostMessage(WM_USERMESSAGE);
}

void CODComboBoxDB::OnUserMessage(...)
{
   m_MyListBox.SetCurSel(x)
}

Thank you for your help!
What did you mean "try to add one function"?
I don't know how to use PeekMessage in this case. Would you like to explain....

Hi si124:
   By any chance, did you add m_MyListBox via ClassWizard or did you manually add it?  IF you manually added it then you most likely forgot to add the necessary info into the DDX part of your class.  For example you should add to the DoDataExchange function something like
DDX_Control(pDX,IDC_COMBO1,m_MyListBox);
