Hello all,
I have a question, I have a winform and in that winform I have a panel. I have been tasked to come up with a way to figure out how to do a project.
This is the project:
We have multiple Groups (Admin, tech support, etc.) and mulltiple Roles (asst lead, lead, etc.) I need to figure out the easiest way and with what ever controls to select a group and assign roles to that group and at the same time display what roles are associated with the group selected when they (the user) selects it. I have the table with the roles and values, and I have a table with the  groups and the values, I created a table today to house the groupid, name and value and the roleid,name and value.
So it would be 1 row for groupid, roleid and both sets of names and values. for each added.
I just dont know how I should go  about it. should I use a combobox for the groups. A combo box for the roles and a list box to display what roles are associated to the Goup selected?
Remember each dataset has multiple values (like ID, name, value, definitiion).
Best  and easiest to implement gets the points
What do you gues think?

I would be tempted to use a combobox for your groups, checkboxes for your associated roles and a datagrid to display the members of the group.
