first i read the data from database to the arraylist named arrspclist,
then i set the combobox's data source to arrspclist.
with displaymember to "SpecialID" and ValueMember = "SpecialName"
now, everytime when there is a change on selection of combobox item, it will display the new info (Sp1Amount, Sp1Price,SP2Amount,SP2Price) to the other textboxes according  to the selection
but i have no idea how to do this getting the info out of a specific arraylist item.
hope i am explaining clearly
thank you

No, I don't quite understand what you mean by "getting the info out of a specific arraylist item".  Do you know anything about generics--List(Of dtSpecial)?  

Do you mean something like this?

Dim list As New List(Of dtSpecial)
Me.ComboBox1.DataSource = list
Me.ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "SpecialName"
Me.ComboBox1.ValueMember = "SpecialID"

...

Dim special As DtSpecial = list(Me.ComboBox1.SelectedIndex)
Dim specialName As String = special.SpecialName
Dim specialID As Integer = special.SpecialID
