asp.net Populate combobox

Here is my code, I'm wanting to fill a combobox from a column in an AS400 table:

Dim cn As iDB2Connection = New iDB2Connection("User ID=thegrinch;Password=elves;Data Source=1.1.1.1;Connection Timeout = 0")
        Dim cmd As iDB2Command
        Dim sqlstring As String
        sqlstring = "select domtshowf from air400.domest where domastat = 'H'"



        cn.Open()
        cmd = New iDB2Command(sqlstring, cn)
        Dim da As New iDB2DataAdapter(sqlstring, cn)
        Dim ds As New DataSet("FromShow")

        Try
            da.Fill(ds)
            cboShowFrom.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)
        End Try
        cn.Close()

cboShowFrom.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
cboShowFrom.Databind() --> You are missing this statement

cboShowFrom.DisplayMember = "domtshowf "
cboShowFrom.ValueMember = "domtshowf " <-- this can be also an ID if you add the primary key in the sqlstring
