I have been trying to get a Combo Box to accept integers via a FOR loop. Since the Combo accepts only strings I converted the integers into a string using the itoa() function and sent the appropriate messages. However, what I am getting in the Combo are beautifully designed squares instead of the integers as converted to a string. What could I be possibly doing wrong. Two other Combos I filled in using a struct are working perfectly. While on this I would like to know if the atoi() function returns only a signed integer?
