I have a combobox databinded to a EntityDataSource.

Somewhere else in the code I update the database, I want the the combobox to register this change.
After the update is made I do combobox.DataBind() but the combobox doesnt update until I refresh the whole page.
Both the combox and datasource are located in the same UpdatePanel.
Is there something Im not doing right?

If the combobox is in it's own UpdatePanel, then you will need to call Update() on the updatepanel as well, otherwise it won't reflect the changes.
