Hi KeithTeo,

Try to use YourComboObject.AddString (String);

where the variables define as:
           CComboBox YourComboObject;
           char Srting[20] = "This is my string";

Hi!

I would suggest that you use:

  ComboObject.SetWindowText("your string");

hi,
 see the msdn article "HOWTO: Subclass CListBox and CEdit Inside of CComboBox".once you get the hwnd of the Cedit class you can just use SetWindowText to set the text.
