Hi there, how would you add a row to a datatable?

I have a look up table with id and description columns.  On loading into VB I want to load data to a combo box, however I want to add another few rows only specific to certain screens in the app.

Thanks!!

Hi David,
Just wanting to clairify you question. Do you want these rows to exist in the database, the datatable, or just the combo box?

just the combo box thanks, but I am setting the datasource to be a table from a database!  The data I want to add are just options for a given form where I do some processing based on the selection.  Only relevant in the particular form loaded and as other systems are using the same look up tables I didn't want to start putting data specific to my app into the database.

Since you are binding to a datasoure, I would do it this way.
Dim t as DataTable = your datasource
with t
  Dim r as DataRow
   r= t.NewRow
   r("id") = your new id
   r("description") = your description
  .Rows.Add(r)
End With
combobox.datasource = t
combobox.DisplayMember = "description"
combobox.ValueMember = "id"

Hope this helps

This is suppose your code for connect your database

Function DatasetGetDB() as dataset

        Dim loConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim constr As String = "Data Source=XXX;Initial Catalog=Testing;Integrated Security=SSPI;"
        loConnection = New SqlConnection(constr) '"Persist Security Info=False;Integrated Security=SSPI;database=northwind;server=(Datasqldev);Connect    Timeout=30")
        loConnection.Open()

        Dim loCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim loResult As New DataSet
        Dim loAdapter As SqlDataAdapter
        loCommand = New SqlCommand("select * from mytablename", loConnection)
        loCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text
        loAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter(loCommand)
        loAdapter.Fill(loResult, "tablename")
        DatasetGetDB= loResult

End Funciton

Now you are getting this dataset with DatasetGetDB.table("mytablename")
But now you want some more row okay
the code is like this

Dim dtrow as datarow
dtrow = DatasetGetDB.table("mytablename").NewRow
With dtrow
    .item(0) ="lækæl"
....
...
...
End with
DatasetGetDB.table("mytablename").Addnew
DatasetGetDB.table("mytablename").Rows.Add(dtrow)

now you use this ...DatasetGetDB.table("mytablename") with added row
