I am not sure whether I understand clearly your problem.
If you are asking why delegate cmbcategory_SelectedIndexChanged has not been called then answer is that maybe you did not have bound this method correctly the event.
Check properties/events of combobox.

If event is raised and method is called but statement (
If cmbcategory.SelectedItem.ToString() <> "--Select Category--") always returns false
then answer is : cmbcategory.SelectedItem.ToString() returns string equal to "System.Data.DataRowView".

Try something like this:
If CType(cmbcategory.SelectedItem, DataRowView)("category").ToString() <> "--Select Category--"
