I am trying to read and set the value of an item in a combo box.
when flicking through the dataset the SelectedValue is always nothing

However the text returns the current value.

I want to set and retrieve the SelectedValue (StaffID), how can I do that ?



OnLoad init combo box:
       ' No problem there the list comes up perfectly
        With Me.ipCbCSO
            .DataSource = Me.bsStaffList
            .ValueMember = "staffID"
            .DisplayMember = "name"
        End With
 
 
....   ON databound positionchanged:
        ' Set Combo text value. (Since I cannot SET the ID value ??)
        Me.ipCbCSO.Text = txtCSOname.Text
         ' This works fine.
        Debug.Print("******** >>>>" & Me.ipCbCSO.Text)
          ' Returns nothing
        Debug.Print("******** ======>>>>" & ipCbCSO.SelectedValue)

Is your StaffID a numeric value or a string ?
Did you check the selectedText, selectedIndex, selectedValue, ... ? (to make sure that something is selected)

Try changing this line
Me.ipCbCSO.Text = txtCSOname.Text

to this
Me.ipCbCSO.SelectedIndex = ipCbCSO.FindStringExact(txtCSOname.Text)

Sorry for any late replies.. I was on holidays :)

staffid is integer.
I removed any values in selected index because it just doesn't give the appropriate result.

 Debug.Print("******** ======>>>>" & ipCbCSO.items.item(ipCbCSO.SelectedIndex).value)
