 To elaborate on monos answer

 In ResourceView with your dialog displaying press ctrl-d
each control in your dialog will diaplay a NUmber in blue an white on top of it, this is the current order. To change the order simply click on the first control then the second etc .. In your case Combobox first then edit box edit near it etc
