I am jumping from vb.net to C# and I am not very familiar with C# but need to force myself to use it.

How can I populate a combobox with a datasets column names?

Usually in vb.net I would do a

for each column in sqldatasource
  dropdownlist.items.add(column.name)
next

Thanks,

If you use e.g. DataAdapter with a DataTable, and want to filll a dropdown list with DataTable's column names you do something like:

            //e.g.: DataTable tbl = new DataTable();

            foreach (DataColumn col in tbl.Columns)
            {
                dropdownlist.Items.Add(col.ColumnName);
            }
