client_notes table

I got combobox and datagridviewcontrol

in combobox I have to display name of the client depending on the condition client.clid=client_notes.clid

in datagridview I have to display date,message depending on the selectedvalue in the combobox

Can I acheive this with one sqlquery and one  mysqladapter or should i need two quries

You should have 1 DataAdapter per table owning their own commands since you don't update or insert or remove data in the same way in both tables.
I'm not sure that it is mandatory but anyway this is the best pratice.

Oh, BTW, here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms973824.aspx
in section "Binding the Combo Box to the Data Adapter" you have some example.
And also, you should use a DataSet to manage your 2 tables.
I'm not certain to understand what you want to do with the combo but if you want to populate the grid depending on a selected value then you'll probably have to code in the selectedindex_changed event handler of the combo the binding of the grid since you will add a condition to the SELECT statement based on the selectedvalkue of the combo.

The BindingSource::Filter Property  is a string so let's concatane :
bSource.Filter = "id="
bSource.Filter += clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue;
NB : I'm not sure you need to use Convert.ToInt32, I didn't look closer to your code.

OK, sorry:
string str = "id = '" + clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue.ToString() + "'";
bSource.Filter = str;

I am getting run time error at bSource.Filter = str
Cannot perform '=' operation on System.UInt32 and System.String.

You wrote : clNamecomboBox.ValueMember = "id";
I guess "id" is an int in the DB, isn't it?
Than in that case
string str = "id = '" + clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue.ToString() + "'";
is OK.
BTW, you don't need to use specifically ToString() method,
string str = "id = '" + clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue + "'";
should work either.
The only way I can repro your issue is if I write something like this:
string str2 = "id = 'id'";

Now that you're done with thread #24421015, I supposed that this one is solved either, isn't it ?

I am still getting the error

Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.DataRowView' to type 'System.IConvertible'.

i'm using string str = "id = '" + Convert.ToInt32(clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue) + "'";

if i use string str = "id = '" + clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue + "'" , i'm getting
Cannot perform '=' operation on System.UInt32 and System.String
thanks

??? But I did ask the question about the type of "id" in the DB ! Is it an int or not ?
