please more explanation about parameters
and where is the recordset?? usualy I bound to a field from a recordset that opened this field!!!
In VB , u can bind only text property of textbox to a datasource,
whereas in Vb .NET u can even bind each property with DB.

In my ex, text means I am binding to the text property of the control textbox1.

U can even bind the Tag property of that textbox to some other columns of ur datatable

In VB .NET ADO is no more (meaning no more recordset concepts) . U have something like Datasets,DataTable,DataVies
eruivalent to Recordset. But  VB .NET supports backward compatabilty. So u can use ADO Recordsets still.

I havent tried using recordset in VB .NET . But try this , it may work

Me.textbox1.DataBindings.Add("Text", RecordSetName,RecordSetFieldName)
