Databinding combobox to custom object - selected index / item not updating object property

I'm pulling my hair out trying to bind a custom object property to a combobox so that when the combox selecteditem is changed the value in the custom outject is updated  to reflect this change and the onPropertyChanged event occurs  - sorry if this is a really simple request:




public class TeleconferencingInfo : INotifyPropertyChanged

private string test;

/// <summary>


/// </summary>

public string Test




return test;




test = value;




private void onPropertyChanged(string propertyName)


if (PropertyChanged == null)


PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));


public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;




attempt at databinding:


TeleconferencingInfo _TeleconferencingInfo = new TeleconferencingInfo();


comboBox1.DataBindings.Add("SelectedValue", _TeleconferencingInfo, "Test");

 comboBox - items - strings "1", "2" "3" etc

any help much appreciated.

Is the control set to "AutoPostBack" = true?
you might want to give you private test an instantiating value like null or string.empty.

I found a solution:

BindingSource teleconferencingBindingSource = new BindingSource();
teleconferencingBindingSource.DataSource = _TeleconferencingInfo;

myComboBox.DataBindings.Add("SelectedValue", teleconferencingBindingSource, "Test", true, DataSourceUpdateMode.OnPropertyChanged);
