Start by picking a language and a framework - how you do things is not the same in all languages, nor in all frameworks.
So tag your question with what you are actually using, and not a pile of things that might be relevant to you.

Then remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind - we only get exactly what you type to work with - we get no other context for your project. So show us the relevant code fragments, and explain what it does that you didn't expect or doesn't do that you did.

Imagine this: you go for a drive in the country, but you have a problem with the car. You call the garage, say "it broke" and turn off your phone. How long will you be waiting before the garage arrives with the right bits and tools to fix the car given they don't know what make or model it is, who you are, what happened when it all went wrong, or even where you are?

That's what you've done here. So stop typing as little as possible and try explaining things to people who have no way to access your project!

I think you can use the SelectedText property

You tagged the Question with many Tags: C++, C#, QT
The techniques are not compatible and, moreover, one could propose a solution with Win32 or MFC or .NET for C++ alone. It is best to show the existing code and only use tags for techniques that should also be used.
There is not enough information to be able to help here.

Elmin, you made your application with c# windows form, right?
can you post your code so i can see what is wrong with it?

Try some searching with a search machine which spitted out some QT5 TUTORIAL QCOMBOBOX - 2020.

//C# Windows Form, when working with ComboBox, you have to assign DataSource, ValueMember to access the id of selected text and DisplayMember to show the selected text. You can achieve this using the following code:
public class Operator
      public string Id { get; set; }
      public string Sign { get; set; }
IList<Operator> Operators = new List<Operator>();
Operators.Add(new Operator() { Id = "1", Sign = "+" });
Operators.Add(new Operator() { Id = "2", Sign = "-" });
Operators.Add(new Operator() { Id = "3", Sign = "*" });
Operators.Add(new Operator() { Id = "4", Sign = "/" });

comboBox.DataSource = Operators;
comboBox.ValueMember = "Id";
comboBox.DisplayMember = "Sign";
//SelectedValue will return the selected value Id and SelectedText will return Text.
switch (comboBox.SelectedValue) 
    case "1": //+
        // You will get the 'Id' of the selected sign
    case "2": // -
        // Your Code
    case "3": // *
        // Your Code
    case "4": // /
        // Your Code
