here is an example where i bind a class Employee list's object to a combobox and listbox

public class EmployeeList
    {
        ArrayList FEmployee = null;

        public event ListChangedEventHandler ListChanged;
               
        public EmployeeList()
        {
            FEmployee = new ArrayList();
            FEmployee.Add(new Employee("1", "Joe"));
            FEmployee.Add(new Employee("2", "Joe2"));
            FEmployee.Add(new Employee("3", "Joe3"));
            FEmployee.Add(new Employee("4", "Joe4"));
            //FEmployee =
            //    new Employee[]{new Employee("1","Joe"),new Employee("2","Joe")
            //        ,new Employee("3","Joe"),new Employee("4","Joe")
            //    ,new Employee("5","Joe"),new Employee("6","Joe"),new Employee("7","Joe")};
        }
        public ArrayList Employees
        {
            get
            {
                return FEmployee;
            }
        }
        public void ChangeEmployeeList()
        {
            ((Employee)FEmployee[0]).Name = "Gautham";
            if (ListChanged != null)
            {
                // ListChanged(this, ListChangedEventArgs.Empty);
            }
        }
    }
    public class Employee
    {
        string FName;
        string FID;
        public Employee(string ID, string Name)
        {
            FName = Name;
            FID = ID;
        }
        public string Name
        {
            get
            {
                return FName;
            }
            set
            {
                FName = value;
            }
        }
        public string ID
        {
            get
            {
                return FID;
            }
            set
            {
                FID = value;
            }
        }
    }



 FEmployee = new EmployeeList();
 comboBox1.DataSource = FEmployee.Employees;
            comboBox1.ValueMember = "Id";
            comboBox1.DisplayMember = "Name";

            listBox1.DataSource = FEmployee.Employees;
            listBox1.ValueMember = "Id";
            listBox1.DisplayMember = "Name";


same can be binded to a datatable by assigingthe datasource property to the datatable and the value and displaymembers to the respective columns in the datatable
