Good afternoon folks

I have a combobox that is populated by a table during the form load .....

I would like to be able to select a item in the combobox and based on criteria, have the item removed from the combobox. I do not want to re-populate the combobox due to the amout of data. I figure I can capture the combobox.selectedindex and remove the item based the index value but having little luck.

Thanks

I hope you are populating combox using dataset. In your ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged event, take value of selected item like ComboBox1.SelectedValue and based on value you need to repopulate  combo. Better to put binding in a sub or function.

Then u can reduce dataset using ds.Select("ProductID<>" & ComboBox1.SelectedValue)

If you are using DataView, you can use RowFilter method to reduce further and rebind.

I hope this will work out.

actually using a reader to populate the combobox....

This seems to work

cbobox.items.removeAt( someindexvalue)

I capture the selectedIndex in the SelectedIndexChanged event as you suggested

Seems to work pretty good

Thanks
