Try the following where IDC_CMB is what ever dialog ID value you've assigned the combo box control.
(Logic assumes it's being executed from within the dialog box, if not, change GetDlgItem() to something like MyDlg.GetDlgItem())
CString str; 
CComboBox* pCB = (CComboBox*) GetDlgItem( IDC_CMB );
int nCurSel = pCB->GetCurSel();
if( nCurSel != CB_ERR )
{
    pCB->GetLBText( nCurSel, str ); 
}
else
{
    pCB->GetWindowText( str );
}
