MFC ComboBox - getCurSel value changesbetween methods!

Hello,
I have the following combobox & MFC related  prob/qs!:

I have a combobox control with 3 values. the combobox control is called cmbSearch. THe code I have to add strings to the comboBox is :

cmbSearch.AddString("Load Number");
            cmbSearch.AddString("Tractor Number");
            cmbSearch.AddString("Terminal Number");

But in the comboBox it shows u pwith Terminal number as the second string. How do I correct this?

Thanks in advance,
-Dee

Also in the same program , I have an edit control with which Ihave associated an integer variable (tEdit_select). But no matter what value i enter when I run the code, its always 0 when I look at whats going on in debug mode....any ideas on how to fix that as well?
Thanks!

Hello Dee,

The listbox sorts the strings by default. Go to the resource editor and open the listbox properties (rclick).
On the 2nd tab (I believe) there is a checkbox to enable/disable sorting of string items.

On the second question:
Do you ever call UpdateData(TRUE) after entering anything into the edit box ?

Cheers,
Sebastian
