Combo box not showing database value

I created a combo box that will display an employee name but store the Employee NO.  The code will create the drop down properly, and when I step thru the code, it is obtaining the correct EmployeeNO to update, but it only displays the first employee name in the list.  I'm sure this is a simple problem, but I don't see what I have done wrong.

on Load:
LoadEmployees();
 LoadPatient();

  private void LoadEmployees()
        {
            m_EmployeeNames = new EmployeeSUID();
            try
            {
                m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployees();
                m_dtEmployee = m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployee;
                // Setup the combobox view and display-, value member
                cbxPreferredCaller.DataSource = m_dtEmployee;
                cbxPreferredCaller.DisplayMember = "FullName";
                cbxPreferredCaller.ValueMember = "EmployeeNO";
                cbxPreferredCaller.DataBindings.Add("SelectedValue", m_dtEmployee, "EmployeeNO");
               
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
                   
            }

 private void LoadPatient()
        {
            int index=0;

            try
            {
                m_patientData = m_mdiParentForm.PatientSUID;
     
                //Set PrimaryCaller comboBox
                m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployeebyEmplNo(m_patientData.PatientRcd.PrimaryCaller);
               
                cbxPreferredCaller.GetItemText(m_patientData.PatientRcd.PrimaryCaller);
               

                tbxMRN.Text = m_patientData.PatientRcd.MRN.ToString();
             
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
            }

I hope this is enough to see what I have done wrong.
Thanks

Replace this line :
cbxPreferredCaller.DataBindings.Add("SelectedValue", m_dtEmployee, "EmployeeNO");

with this:
cbxPreferredCaller.DataBind();

It should work.

Hi, For getting value from combobox you have to first bind their values as a ValueMember and DataMember.

qery128, DataBind is used for web applications and this is a windows application.  
Samirbhoqayta, how do you bind their values as a value member and datamember?  Can you give an example.

I ended up solving the problem .  Here is what I had to do for a windows application:

 private DataTable m_dtEmployee;
 private BindingSource m_bndEmployee;


OnLoad
 LoadEmployees();
  LoadPatient();

 private void LoadEmployees()
        {
            m_EmployeeNames = new EmployeeSUID();
            this.m_bndEmployee = new BindingSource();
           
            try
            {
                // obtain all employees and store in data table
                m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployees();
                m_dtEmployee = m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployee;
                // set binding source data source to data table
                this.m_bndEmployee.DataSource = m_dtEmployee;
                // set binding source to the data source of combo box
                cbxPreferredCaller.DataSource = m_bndEmployee;
                // Setup the combobox view and display-, value member
                cbxPreferredCaller.DisplayMember = "FullName";
                cbxPreferredCaller.ValueMember = "EmployeeNO";
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
                   
            }

 LoadPatient()
{
              //Set PrimaryCaller comboBox
                m_EmployeeNames.GetEmployeebyEmplNo(m_patientData.PatientRcd.PrimaryCaller);
                cbxPreferredCaller.Text = m_EmployeeNames.EmployeeName;
}
