IDE: Visual Studio 2008
Problem: The binding navigation bar is grayed out. I am using a drop down menu also and it is working with the database.

There is a parent and child forms. The parent does not need the navigation but all the child forms do.
I am still new to vb.net and I'm learning.

If you are working with an ASP.NET web site, the BindingNavigator is a Windows Form control, and not allowed in a web site.

If you have a Windows Forms application, and you have a Form open in the designer, then you should be able to drag and drop a BindingNavigator to the form.

Can you attach a screen shot of what you are working with, and what you are trying (including the tool box)?  The controls are usually disabled when you are trying to access them from a place where it is not appropriate...

I missed the part about a running application, so I keep thinking that you were talking about a grayed out control in the tool box.  The picture definitely helped to show me what you really meant.  I don't see in the code where you are setting up the BindingNavigator to work with your data source.  The easiest way that I know of to use the BindingNavigator is to define a Data Source with the Data | Add New Data Source menu item, and then drag and drop a table on to the form, and the IDE will automatically add the necessary code, and set up the BindingNavigator as needed.
