Simple data binding way in Windows Form?

Simple question, but i need the answer urgently. Thanks. Anybody can give me some sample code on simple data binding without using dataset? Say, I have a form with one combo box, two text fields. The data of the combobox can be binded to an arraylist, say, library name, and the two fields will be populated the corresponding library code, address, etc. Library name, library ID, library address come from the same table. What are the choices of implementing this without using dataset? Anybody can give me some links or code samples on this?

Seems like you're going to a lot of trouble avoiding the usage of the standard technique, so we might be able to answer better if you can explain why you DON'T want to use a dataset.

But to answer a portion of your question, you can bind a combobox to an ArrayList just as you would a dataset:

    Dim al As New ArrayList

        al.Add("a")
        al.Add("b")
        al.Add("c")

     ComboBox1.DataSource = al
