1. Set the DropDownStyle to list,e.g
        Dim xc As New ComboBox
        xc.DropDownStyle = ComboBoxStyle.DropDownList

Open in new window

2. Add this to your Rest Button click event
xc.SelectedValue = "--Select City--"

Open in new window

cmblastqualification.SelectedValue = "--Select Last Qualification"
            cmbcourse.SelectedValue = "--Select Course--"

This code is not working, here cmblastqualification and cmbcourse are the combboxes.

You need to add those values before you can set them i.e
cmbcourse.Items.Add("--Select Course--")
'then
cmbcourse.SelectedValue = "--Select Course--"

Open in new window

PS. Do NOT add the item in the click event, add it inthe form load

You can also use SelectedIndex to 0 to select the first item in combobox.
