I do :) -- it seems much better than 1.2, an I was too lazy
to learn C fluently :(

I do the same.

   Here it is. You may do not like that code, I do not like it too much,
   but it works. It is rather old code, many times patched and ported.
   I am not able to isolate pure GTK+ code from this bundle in a short time.

   Here I put only the crucial few lines, that invoke new gtkCombo,
   attach a list to it and mount it to outer non-gtk structure.

   The problem is that immediately after gtk_combo_new(), the result has
   in W32 its Entry field equal to NULL. So, no explicit operation could
   be done on that field, although the widget is visible, clickable etc.

   I am using gtk2-2.4.0-1 under redhat, 2.4.14-3 under fedora (they are
   OK), and 2.4.14 under w2k and wine. Using old GTK1.2, no problem is reported.

program sample;
   formica;  // nonstandard, but the most important piece given below.
             // this is high-level api that abstracts from interface
             // details
   h: dlghandle;  // == pointer
   items: array[1..5] of shortstring;
   current_field: integer = 0;


   formicainit('A sample application');  // calls gtk_init();

   items[1] := 'field 1';
   items[2] := 'field 2';
   items[3] := 'field 3';
   items[4] := 'field 4';
   items[5] := 'last field';
   current_field := 3;

writeln('before: --------------');
writeln(current_field, ': "', items[current_field], '"');

   h := createdialog('A sample dialog'); // calls gtk_dialog_new();
   DefListField(h, 'A sample combo list:', 5, @items, current_field);  // below
   executedialog(h, nil, nil, nil);  // calls loop with gtk_main_iteration
                                     // as many times as needeed

writeln('after: ---------------');
writeln(current_field, ': "', items[current_field], '"');
writeln('thanks ---------------');


   most important piece defines combo widget in dialog
function DefListField(h: DlgHandle; const msg: string; n: index; keyvalues: pstringlist; var ikey: index): boolean;
   __p: pchar;
   i: index;
   with pDialogForm(h)^ do begin
     itemTail^ := NewPDlgItem;
     with itemTail^^ do begin
       itemtype := idftype_combo;

       itemsrc_co := @ikey;
       itemvalue_co := ikey;

       ItemLabel := DefLabelWithText(Msg);

       itemBox := pgtkbox(gtk_hbox_new(FALSE, 8));
       gtk_box_pack_start(PgtkBox(itemBox), PGtkWidget(ItemLabel), false, false, 0);

       if (n>0) then begin

         itemCombo := pgtkcombo(gtk_combo_new());
writeln('is Entry nil? ', itemcombo^.entry=nil);
         itemlist_co := nil;

         for i := 1 to n do begin
           __p := str2pchar(keyvalues^[i]);
           itemList_co := g_list_append(itemlist_co, __p);
           { this entry must be passed to the list; do not "strDispose(__p);" now! }

         gtk_combo_set_popdown_strings(itemcombo, itemList_co);
         if (ikey>0) then begin
           __p := Str2PChar(keyvalues^[ikey]);
           gtk_entry_set_text(pgtkentry(itemcombo^.entry), __p);
         end else
           gtk_entry_set_text(pgtkentry(itemcombo^.entry), '<???>'#0);

         gtk_combo_set_value_in_list(itemcombo, true, false);
         gtk_entry_set_editable(pgtkentry(itemcombo^.entry), false);

         gtk_box_pack_start(pgtkbox(itembox), pgtkwidget(itemCombo), false, false, 0);

       end else
         gtk_entry_set_text(pgtkentry(itemcombo^.entry), '<???>'#0);

       itemnrows_co := n;

       gtk_box_pack_start(PGtkBox(Window^.vbox), PGtkWidget(itemBox), false, false, 0);
     itemTail := @itemTail^^.itemNext;
     result := true;

Is that common for GTKCombo under Windows?
