Hi Experts,

I have a combobox that is bound to a stored procedure. The problem is that I can only display one coulmn in the combobox.
I would like to display all the columns the stored procedure returns (4).

SP:

CREATE PROCEDURE [SelectAllSafe]

AS

SELECT     *
FROM         Safe
GO

VB code:

        '-----------------------------------
        Dim sqlConn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection
        sqlConn.ConnectionString = getConnection2()
        sqlConn.Open()
        Dim cmd As New SqlClient.SqlCommand
        Dim DA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        '-----------------------------------

        cmd.CommandText = "selectallsafe"


        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        cmd.Connection = sqlConn
        cmb1_1.DataSource = Nothing

        DA.SelectCommand = cmd
        DA.Fill(ds, "Safe")

        cmb1_1.DataSource = ds.Tables("Safe")
        cmb1_1.ValueMember = "SafeID"
        cmb1_1.DisplayMember = "SafeNavn"

It is good to change your Stored Procedure and send one extra column, which is cancatinated all values.
SQL Looks like:

Select Name, Phone, Address, Name + Phone + Address As 'All' From Table

or create your own multi column combobox with databinding capabilitites.
luckily, this great article by Eric Moreau already explains and provides the source code on how to do this:

Or get a 3rd party control that has multi-column support in comboboxes (like http://www.infragistics.com).  The first two posted solutions are a lot cheaper and easier though :)

Unfortunately, none of the answers solved my problem. However, I will give the points to newyuppie for an interesting article.
