Hi,

I am populating combobox from two tables with following query

private void Fillcmbbankerid()
        {
            try
            {
                {
                    prefetchPathbanker.Add(BankerEntity.PrefetchPathBank);
                    bucketbanker.PredicateExpression.Add(BankerFields.Flag ==
                                                         StandardFlag.recordvalidflag);
                    adapterbanker.FetchEntityCollection(datasourcebanker, bucketbanker, 0,
                                                        new SortExpression(BankerFields.BankerId |
                                                                           SortOperator.Ascending),
                                                        prefetchPathbanker);
                    cmbbankerid.DataSource = datasourcebanker;
                    cmbbankerid.DisplayMember = "DESCRIPTION";
                    cmbbankerid.ValueMember = "BANKERID";
                    cmbbankerid.SelectedIndex = -1;
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                GlobalErrorHandler.LogMessage(ex.Message + ex.StackTrace);
            }
            finally
            {
                adapterbanker.CloseConnection();
            }
        }

Output of query what I have written is SELECT   BANK.DESCRIPTION, BANKER.BANKER_ID
  FROM   BANKER, BANK
 WHERE   (BANK.BANK_ID = BANKER.BANK_ID) AND (BANKER.FLAG = 0)

Problem
Now the question is how to i add a blank row to this datasource. ?
Remember, I am using two tables here

Do you want an empty item added to the combobox or what exactly do you want ?

Well I know how to add an empty Item

The problem is adding an empty item when I am loading combobox with relations from 2 tables as stated in my query under my question.

it is possible to do but you need to use union for this. where you can write a select query which will return a single blank row.

but its better to use it this way because it will be scalable.

you can use combobox insertAt method to add an empty item because from the select query it would be not possible.

i don't know the datatype of datasourcebanker so i written that. basic purpose was to insert the index. i thought it was an array so used Length. you can use appropriately.
