Hi,

I have 2 c# winform dot net 1.1 combo's. Both are data bound to the results of a SQL select statement executed on my sybase database. What I want to do is implement functionality where by selecting one of the values in combo1 forces the selected index of combo2 to be changed and display a different value by default, but allow the user to edit the selected index of combo 2 if need be.

Is this possible. As ever your help is really appreciated.

Thanks

create a method like this :

private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
     // set the selected index of comboxbox2 to what ever you like here
}

and bind it to the selectedInbdexChanged event like this :

this.comboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged += new System.EventHandler(this.comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);

Using the above, whenever the selected index of comboxbox1 chnages the method will be called and you can set the selectedindex of combobox2 accordingly.
