I need to refresh the value in the combobox after an event from other tool in the same add-in (ARCGIS 10.1. Python). I've changed the value of the combobox with the code: combobox.value = val and I want to show it in the combobox but I can't refresh this combobox after give a value in other tool.

As documented in the help, use the .refresh() method:

combobox.value = val
