how do you bind a datagrid's combo box to a dataset or table?  I am setting the grid up in the designer, declaring the row name, then want to bind in code.

So I have the first column in the datagrid with the name "customerName" and a datatable with a column by the same name I want to populate it with.

The solution is in the article.  It didn't mention binding to a combobox in a datavgridview.

yes it does not! but the binding works always the same nevermind where the combobox is! When the binding works with a combobox directly in a windows.forms it also works with a datagridview...

If i missunderstand a problem in your question please try to explain it in a different way or show me the code where the troubles occure!

best regards

I am accepting to close the question, but I really don't think that you read the question.  Binding to a datagridview combobox is the problem.  Telling me to go through a document just to find .datasource and .datamemeber doesn't help at all.  That is pretty basic.  Either I should already know that, or you could have posted two lines.  Reguardless, I did not say how do you bind.  I had a specific question that your link in no way answered.  Sorry to bark at you, but in my experience once a few people have commented, the question just sits there.  People who go around posting half-assed answers or links just waste a lot of time.  To get around this, I have posted other questions to have a clean post.  Then I get in trouble for posting the same question again.  Again, I am not trying to give you a hard time, but I use this site as a resource, and throwing around a bunch of links ruins the resource, and wastes time for everyone.


Here is the right answer

        Dim dRow As DataRow
        dRow = m_dsLookups.Brokers.NewRow()
        dRow("Name") = ""
        dRow("GUID") = System.Guid.Empty
        m_dsLookups.Brokers.Rows.InsertAt(dRow, 0)

'this is in no way obvious, and can't be figured out from your link
        Dim cb As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn
        cb = Me.DGBrokers.Columns("BrokerGUID")
        cb.DataSource = m_dsLookups.Brokers
        cb.DisplayMember = "Name"
        cb.ValueMember = "GUID"
