Using a DataSource for more than one Control?

I have several bound ComboBox controls on a form. A couple of these Controls use the same DataSource. My problem occurs when I select a value from one of the ComboBoxes, the other control using the same DataSource recieves the same value that was selected from the Target ComboBox. I can only assume this occurs because a value was selected from the "DataSource". How can I prevent the value from propagating into another like control?

Thanks,

Hi..


My problem occurs when I select a value from one of the ComboBoxes, the other control using the same DataSource recieves the same value that was selected from the Target ComboBox

That is because these Comboboxes sharing the same Binding context..

Create  new Datasources with different names for these Comboboxes..

Hope that helps....
