QComboBox doesn't provide any support for sorting itself. You could either
sort the list in advance or, if you need the unsorted list elsewhere, you
could use some technique for inserting the items in the correct order.
If it doesn't seem like a wasteful operation, you could just sort a copy of
the list and insert that into the combo box. You could even create a
QStringList, sort it, and pass that into QComboBox::addItems().
