datagrid event handling

This has been bothering me for a while now.  I am using OLEDbAdapter to fill a dataset.  The dataset is filling a data grid.  I have a Column that is not visible in the normal Datagrid.  When a user selects a given row in the datagrid I need to fill 2 seperate items.  1 being a picture box, the other being a txt box.

And it needs to change everytime they select a new row.


The select statement has PN, TR_Desc, Desc, Pic, Vendor

Desc is not being shown in the main datagrid.



I need Pic to show in the Picture Box (pbx1)
and
Desc to fill in another Text Box (txtbx2)

Any suggestions will help

catch the selectedRowIndexChanged event.

In that event, you can use the currentRowIndex of the grid to figure out which PIC and TEXT to display.

Hi malanois,

Web or winforms,

if winforms,

just set the textbox databindings

like yourtextbox.databindings.add("text",yourdataset.tables(0),"Desc")

for the picturebox its a bit more work

in the currentcellchanged event of your datagrid do something like this

            Dim bytBLOBData() As Byte = _
                ds.Tables(0).Rows(yourdatagrid.currentrowindex).item("pic")
            Dim stmBLOBData As New MemoryStream(bytBLOBData)
            yourpicturebox.Image = Image.FromStream(stmBLOBData)
        End If
