This command can be very very frustrating to use because it does not output any errors if unable to function.
Often, the 2nd provided syntax needs to be used like this:
_giveYourControlAname = findDisplay 7 displayCtrl 9; _addThisToListBox = "Option"; _giveYourControlAname lbAdd _addThisToListBox;
Where "7" is the "idd" of the dialog you made in your ".hpp" file and where "9" is the "idc" of the RscListBox or RscComboBox.
The code above will add an option named "Option" to the ListBox or ComboBox.
