Override the PreTranslateMessage method in your combo box

BOOL CMyComboBox::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
      if (pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
      {
            
                   int nVirtKey = (int) pMsg->wParam;
            
                              if (nVirtKey==13)//VK_ENTER
            {
                  CString text;
                  GetWindowText(text);
                  return TRUE;
            }      
      
      }

      return CComboBox::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}
