ComboBox wont bind! Windows App

Below code wont bind the control when I run the app, tried using the extender on the control to set up its binding source and that doesn't work either...any ideas?

I've set the below code to run when the form loads and also from a button click but doesn't do anything.

Thanks!
MyComboBox.DataSource = MyDataSet.Tables("Customers")
        MyComboBox.DisplayMember = "CompanyName"
        MyComboBox.ValueMember = "CompanyID"

Sorry for not looking throughly. Visual Basic is my taboo programing language so i tested in c#.
 I have created a Sql 2005 database with table Table1 which has fields "asdf" and "qwer". Then i added the data set and drag & dropped the table from Server Explorer onto DataSet designer. After that i added the on load event with this code:

		private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
		{
			Table1TableAdapter adapter = new Table1TableAdapter();
			DataSet1 ds = new DataSet1();
			adapter.Fill(ds.Table1);
 
 
			comboBox1.DataSource = ds.Table1;
			comboBox1.DisplayMember = "asdf";
			comboBox1.ValueMember = "qwer";
 
 
		}

databind is not a member of combobox, i think that would work in ASP.Net but this is a windows VB.Net app. Can't find anything similiar to that effect either...i'm beggining to wonder if I should be connecting to the dataset or the dataset tableadapter...stabbing wildy in the dark though when I enter code - nothing seems to work with that and this conforms to the example on MSDN...I think you may be on the correct track though.

Incase anyone needs this in VB codes below.

Thanks for your help!
    Private Sub BindComboBox()
 
        Dim adapter As New Table1TableAdapter()
        Dim ds As New MyDataSet()
        adapter.Fill(ds.Table1)
 
        MyComboBox.DataSource = ds.Table1
        MyComboBox.DisplayMember = "CompanyName"
        MyComboBox.ValueMember = "CompanyID"
    End Sub
