Display a record on my form based on value I select in my ComboBox

I have a standard windows form that uses a dataset to get all of the textboxes populated from a single table.  I would like to display the data related to the key field called ctl_num that is selected from the combo.

Following code snippet may give you some idea.
dim tempView as Data.DataView
 
tempView = New Data.DataView(myDataSet.Tables("myTable"))
tempView.RowFilter = "ctl_num = " + comboBox.Text
 
'fill values into textboxes here.
TextBox1.Text = TempView(0).Item("Field1").ToString()

RiteshSompura,

Perfect!  That works great.  The only problem that I will have is that I will have to reference all of my many data fields in the code.. which there are many.  But this will work fine.
