Populate listbox with a dataset

Hi Experts,

I want to know how to populate a listbox with a dataset.  I did the following code, but the listbox shows

System.Data.DataRowView
System.Data.DataRowView

I want to populate people's name in the listbox.  How to do that?

********************************************
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
     
        CallDBConn()
        Dim myCommand As New SqlDataAdapter("select * from tblUsers", objConn)

        Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet
        myCommand.Fill(ds, "tblUsers")

        lbFrom.DataSource = ds.Tables("tblUsers").DefaultView

        DataBind()
    End Sub

Hi 5281,

Give the listbox some fields to use:

lbFrom.DataTextField="UserName"
lbFrom.DataValueField="ID"

For example, or substitute appropriate field names from your table.

Unless you tell it what fields to bind to it cannot guess!
