    You can add data in the resource editor. How you do it depends which version of C++ you're running.

    What is "a default drop down menu" in a combobox?
    Or you meant filling in the combobox with the items?
    If latter then:
    1. add control member variable for this combobox, say c_MyCombo
    2. use CComboBox::AddString method to add items
    3. you can place such a code in your dialog OnInitDialog method like:
      Code:
      CSomeDialog::OnInitDialog()
      	CDialog::OnInitDialog();
      	
      	c_MyCombo.AdddString(_T("Item 1"));
      	c_MyCombo.AdddString(_T("Item 2"));
      	c_MyCombo.AdddString(_T("Item 3"));
      	...
      }
    {

    CComboBox::GetCurSel
    CComboBox::GetLBText
    Code:
    CString strText;
    int ind = c_Combo.GetCurSel();
    if(ind != CB_ERR)
    	c_Combo.GetLBText(ind, strText);
