I'm using a combo box in web page and the values of
the combo are fetched from database. Now I need
to allow the user to add his own entry to the combo,
if he doesn't find a proper option in the combo.

how to make the combo editable? please give me your valuable inputs.

to my best knowledge you'll need a seperate input field and something like a "add" button. and one to "remove". and one to "edit"...

all this will result in a reloaded combo-box, which means that you cannot manipulate it on the fly, even though you might use ajax to give it a "on the fly"-impression.
