I am filling a datagrid on the form load.

I am also filling a combo box, that has links to the datagrid.

As the user clicks the combo box i want to filter the datagrid to show only the rows that pertain to the combo.

I am having the problem with updating and the filtering of the datagrid.

Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmb_feature.SelectedIndexChanged
Dim t as string
t = cmb_feature.Text.ToString

                         <<<<<<--------------------------------------------------------How do i update and  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<-----------------------------------------------------------filter the datagrid

        Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView.RowFilter = t


    End Sub

it should be something like this

Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmb_feature.SelectedIndexChanged

        Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView.RowFilter = "yourname = '" & combobox1.text & "'"

    End Sub

yourname should ofcourse be the column name you want to filter on

if you use a valuemember 'like an ID" in your combobox which corresponts to your datagrid column

then use something like

Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView.RowFilter = "yourID = " & combobox1.selectedvalue

OK,  I have a little problem though:

Here is my select statement

SELECT DISTINCT T_CONFIG_GUIDES_CB.FeatureCode + '    /    ' + T_CONFIG_GUIDES_FCBASE.Title AS combined FROM (T_CONFIG_GUIDES_FCBASE INNER JOIN T_CONFIG_GUIDES_CB ON T_CONFIG_GUIDES_FCBASE.FeatureCode = T_CONFIG_GUIDES_CB.FeatureCode)

as you can see i am combining featurecode and title as combined.

on the selectedindexchanged of the combo how can I just get the feature code out of it, to macth the other information.

You have to use the DataTable or DataSet instead of the Datagrid.Tables

Private Sub cmb_feature_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmb_feature.SelectedIndexChanged

        Dim dv As DataView
        dv = yourdataset.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView
        dv.RowFilter = "ColumnName = '" & sender.SelectedValue.ToString & "'"
        Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.DataSource = dv

    End Sub

I am enclosing the filter with single '

dv.RowFilter = "ColumnName = '" & sender.SelectedValue.ToString & "'"

If the value is character type, if numeric you don't need them.

And the grid is refreshed automatically.

something like

 Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView.RowFilter = "featurecode = '" & FCode(combobox1.text)  & "'"


Private Function FCode(ByVal fc As String) As String
        Dim g As String = fc.Substring(0, fc.IndexOf("/")).TrimEnd
        Return g
End Function

If I try
Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.DataSource = dv  I get DataDource is not a member

If I try
Me.Db_FC_Datagrid.T_CONFIG_GUIDES = dv
I get read only


I changed the dv as new dataview

Is it a Dataset or Datagrid?

if it is a dataset the code would look like this:

Dim dv As New DataView
dv = Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView
dv.RowFilter = "ColumnName = '" & sender.SelectedValue.ToString & "'"
Me.YourDataGrid.DataSource = dv

or if you are using the Text Property of you combobox

Dim dv As New DataView
dv = Db_FC_Datagrid.Tables("Feature Bill").DefaultView
dv.RowFilter = "ColumnName = '" & sender.Text.ToString & "'"
Me.YourDataGrid.DataSource = dv
