VB.Net: Populating comboboxes from data source
Posted on 2013-01-08
I have a couple of instances where I have a comboboxes menu in VB.Net, and I've bound it to a Binding source, which, in turn, is bound to an ".xsd" file, which defines a SQL-Server-based dataset.
I have two adjacent comboboxes, both with virtually the same arrangement of data bindings, and one populates, the other does not. From the dataset designer, both queries work perfectly, giving me the results I expect. As an experiment, I unchecked the box on both comboboxes that says "Use Databound items" and then re-established the datasets on both. As before, the first resumed working and other resumed providing me with an empty list.
I thought it time to get some advice on this. Dropdowns have been a headache for me for a while. Thanks, ~Peter Ferber
