Deletes the item in position nIndex from the combo box.

int DeleteString( 
   UINT nIndex  


Specifies the index to the string that is to be deleted.

If the return value is greater than or equal to 0, then it is a count of the strings remaining in the list. The return value is CB_ERR if nIndex specifies an index greater than the number of items in the list.

All items following nIndex now move down one position. For example, if a combo box contains two items, deleting the first item will cause the remaining item to now be in the first position. nIndex=0 for the item in the first position.

// Delete every item from the combo box. 
for (int i = m_pComboBox->GetCount() - 1; i >= 0; i--)
