After looking at the specific part of code where you are creating the combo and adding strings, it looks correct.
Why I am asking for code is, because only looking at specific part, problem cannot be known. Sometimes, the problem in one part effects other parts.
What exactly is going on, what exactly you are trying is not clear.
In case the code is big and you have no issues of making your code public, you can upload it somewhere and post the link. I can have a look.
Thanks alot for your responds.i found out the problem.problem was, i was setting keyboard focus from child window to some other window in one condition, so only toolbar loosing its focus.But SetFocus function actually for keyboard right,why it is effecting Mouse events??
