How to dynamically change a CComboBox from dropdown to dropdown list

How can you change the type of a CComboBox from a dropdown to a dropdownlist after a dialog box has been created? Just changing the window style from CBS_DROPDOWN to CBS_DROPDOWNLIST does not seem to be enough.

try to call this method for the ComboBox:
    ModifyStyle(CBS_DROPDOWN, CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, SWP_NOSIZE|SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOZORDER);
and
    ModifyStyle(CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, CBS_DROPDOWN, SWP_NOSIZE|SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOZORDER);
alternatively.

I intend to ask for this question to be closed and for a refund. Jaime's answer suggests something that I have said does not work in the question and Alex is really just stating the obvious.
