Add new item to ComboBox in WinForm vb.net and automatic refresh the box.

I'm building a WinForm in VIsual Studio 2008 and I've the following question.

On the form I've a ComboBox Customer. But a new customer isn't in my dataset / database so I've to open a new form AddCustomer and when I'm ready and close the form the ComboBox must be refreshed / fill agian. How can I do this easy?

If it's posible I want to used the keydown function to open de new form.

Hope somebody can help me.

So if I understand it correctly: You have a mainform which holds a combobox with all your customers.
When one customer is not in there, you open a new form and create a new customer. After adding this to the database, you close this form and return to the mainform ?

Can you show how you call your "new customer" form ? Do you call it with showdialog ?
If so, you can refresh the box after this statement

Hello Dhaest,

This was what I needed. I used the .show() function and not .showdialog()

THANK A LOT
