       CheckedListBox1.DataSource = Me.BindingSource1

        CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = Me.DataSet1.ITEM.ITM_TYPEColumn.ToString()


When starting the program all i get from the checked listbox is system.data.DataViewManagerListItemTypeDescriptor

Im connecting to a oracle database, and i dont understand why i dont get the Item types in the checked listbox when i start program :/

Please help

You need to also define the fields where the data comes from...

CheckedListBox1.DataTextField = "someField";
CheckedListBox1.DataValueField = "someotherField";

Well, for DataTextField, that's what the user sees - the value in the list box. This needs to point to some field or property in DataSet1. Here, I'm going to assume you need to use "ITM_TYPEColumn"

CheckedListBox1.DataTextField = "ITM_TYPEColumn";

Likewise, DataValueField is going to point to the property/field in DataSet1 that contains the value - usually a primary key. You can probably use the same value here if you want "ITM_TYPEColumn"

Try using DisplayMember instead:

CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = "ITM_TYPEColumn";

ok thanks, but i cant use checkedlistbox1.datatextfield, becouse of this error:

'datatextfield' is not a member of system.windows.forms.checkedlistbox

this error is the same for the checkedlistbox1.datavaluefield

ok, I wasn't aware you were doing windows forms (vs web forms). Try this way:

CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = "ITM_TYPEColumn"

oki, well i tried it and i got the same result, is this code supposed to be instead of the .displaymember i already have in my code, or should i add it under my code?

I tried removing my version of the display member, and adding your version, but i got same result. i tried with just yours but i still got same, anything im doing wrong?

CheckedListBox1.DataSource = Me.BindingSource1

        CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = Me.DataSet1.ITEM.ITM_TYPEColumn.ToString()

then i add your part of the code

CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = "ITM_TYPEColumn"

ive also tried removing the CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = Me.DataSet1.ITEM.ITM_TYPEColumn.ToString()

without any luck

And my code worked as soon as i added this tableadapter, so always check if you have a tableadapter in visual studio 2005 if you cant get any data as soon as your form loads :)
