Error: 248: This List Box does not support retrieval of item text

Keywords:   Error: 248: This List Box does not support retrieval of item text

Question:

I am trying to retrieve items from the Combox of Outlook98 Properties (NT 4.0 sp3) and am getting the following error:
	Extended Error: 248: This List Box does not support retrieval of item text.
The COmbo box is in the "Addressing" Tab (from Outlook 98 Property) and it is called "Show this address list first:" its Control ID is 651 in decimal, using the cGetCBText function.

But I am able to select an Item with the cSetCBItem function while giving manually a number.

Answer:

I believe the error message is correct. The combo box does not support the capture of the list contents, even though we can set items, we cannot see what they are.
