Displaying selected value in TextBox in Vb.Net

Hi,

I have a form which contains one combobox and two text boxes. Combobox is for the userId. and text box are for firstNAme and LAstNAme.  Well, If I selected USer ID  '5', then the firstname and the lastname of the person should appear in the text box.
How do i achieve it?
Thanks!!!

Assuming that you know how to get firstname and lastname, here is a sample you should try to use:-

private void ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
	{

		ComboBox comboBox = (ComboBox) sender;

         	string selectedEmployee = (string) ComboBox1.SelectedItem;
                txtFirstName.Text = GetFirstName(selectedEmployee);
                txtLastName.Text = GetLastName(selectedEmployee);
        }

Open in new window

GetfirstName and GetLastName are the methods that will fetch first and last names of the id passed to them.....

@ Idle-Mind: I get the firstName & LAstNAme from the database. IT should display the firstname and lastname associated with UID.
Thanks

There are two approaches.

1) If the list of names is not huge, you can load all the names in a DataTable on form load using following code

Dim dbadp As New SqlDataAdapter("Select UID, Firstname, Lastname From tablename", "connectionstring")
Dim dTable As New DataTable 'declare it at class level
dbadp.Fill(dTable)
dbadp.Dispose


Then in selectedindexchange event

dTable.DefaultView.RowFilter = "UID=" & combobox1.Text
If dTable.DefaultView.Count = 1 Then
   txtFirstName.Text = dTable.DefaultView.Item(0).Item(1)
   txtLastName.Text = dTable.DefaultView.Item(0).Item(2)
End if


2) Second option is to load the names when the selection changes

In selectedindexchanged event

Dim dbcon As New SqlConnection("connectionstring")
dbcon.Open()
Dim dbcmd As New SqlCommand(dbcon)
dbcmd.CommandText = "Select Firstname + ':' + LastName From table Where UID=" & combobox1.Text
Dim names as object = dbcmd.ExecuteScalar()
dbcmd.Dispose
dbcon.Dispose

if Not IsDbNull(names)
   txtFirstname.Text = names.ToString().Split(":")(0)
   txtLastname.Text = names.ToString().Split(":")(1)
End if
