Hi I have a Dataset of studentData

I make a subset of Active Students into a different Dataset... Original dataset bound , I have no problems

I try binding this Dataset to the combo. It fails to bind.  

If I bind the Original Dataset(dsStudents)  to the combo its fine. It only fails if i bind it to subset At valueMember property

  dim dssubset = new dsSubset(); //Subset Dataset

  DataRow[] rows = DsSTUDENTS.Tables[0].Select("Active=1");  //Original Dataset

   dssubset = MakeDataSet(rows); //to make subset of original dataset
 


 public DataSet MakeDataSet(DataRow[] drRows)
        {
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            foreach (DataRow dr in drRows)
            {
                dt.ImportRow(dr);
            }
            DataSet dsNew = new DataSet();
            dsNew.Tables.Add(dt);
            return dsNew;

        }


                  ////// THIS WORKS FINE ////////////////////
                    this.COMBOBOX.DataSource = dsStudents.Tables[0];
                    this.ComboBox.DisplayMember = "Name";
                    this.combobox.ValueMember = "Student_ID";  


//////////////////////////FAILS HERE SUBSET OF ORIGINAL DATASET
                 
                    this.COMBOBOX.DataSource = dssubset.Tables[0];
                    this.ComboBox.DisplayMember = "Name";
                    this.combobox.ValueMember = "Student_ID"; //FAILS HERE SAYING CANNOT BIND TO DATAMEMBER

instead of using .Select()
try use DsSTUDENTS.Tables[0].DefaultView.RowFilter  Property


try this code
DataView dvActive = DsSTUDENTS.Tables[0].DefaultView;
dvActive.RowFilter = "Active=1";
 
 
this.ComboBox.DataSource = dvActive;
this.ComboBox.DisplayMember = "Name";
this.combobox.ValueMember = "Student_ID";

Remove this line
dim dssubset = new dsSubset(); //Subset Dataset

and add this one

dim dssubset = DsSTUDENTS.Clone()

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
