An application sends a CB_ADDSTRING message to add a string to the list box of a combo box. If the combo box does not have the CBS_SORT style, the string is added to the end of the list. Otherwise, the string is inserted into the list, and the list is sorted.
CB_ADDSTRING wParam = 0; // not used; must be zero lParam = (LPARAM) (LPCTSTR) lpsz; // address of string to add
The return value is the zero-based index to the string in the list box of the combo box. If an error occurs, the return value is CB_ERR. If insufficient space is available to store the new string, it is CB_ERRSPACE.
If you create an owner-drawn combo box with the CBS_SORT style but without the CBS_HASSTRINGS style, the WM_COMPAREITEM message is sent one or more times to the owner of the combo box so the new item can be properly placed in the list.
To insert a string at a specific location within the list, use the CB_INSERTSTRING message.
