Unless you operate really tiny address book which will fit on average
screen (and then what's the point writing a program for it?) it is not
really suitable widget. You should use treeview for that. I would not
say it is easier, but it worth it.

That is totally wrong function to "read into the combo box". That one
just selects an item which is already there. To fill up the combo box
you either use gtk_combo_box_append_text or manipulate underlying model,
depending on what type of combobox it is. But again, consider treeview.
