Hi Experts!

What combobox property must be filled to make a choosen option reflect  a correspondent code?

Example:

Combo:
01
BD table:
02

The code I used:

.....
 using (var connection = new MySqlConnection(connectionString))
            {
                connection.Open();
                var query = "SELECT SB_CR, DESCRICAO FROM cr WHERE TIPO=1";
                using (var command = new MySqlCommand(query, connection))
                {
                    using (var reader = command.ExecuteReader())
                    {
                        //Iterate through the rows and add it to the combobox's items
                        while (reader.Read())
                        {
                            comboBox1.Items.Add(reader.GetString("DESCRICAO"));

                           // It doesn't work
                           //comboBox1.ValueMember = reader.GetString("SB_CR");

                        }
                    }
                }

Open in new window


So If I choose CASA a correspondent property containing the PK  101 must be available to be used by the program. What's the property ?


Thanks in advance!

ValueMember and DisplayMember are used for databinding your combo box to a datasource, such as a DataSet.

If you want to use a SQLDataReader, you will need to create a ComboBoxItem, set its Content and Tag properties and then add it to your ComboBox.

Hello

Really much easier using Dataset than code as I did.
I had only to turn off constraints in dataset for my particular purpose.
and simply use

  var teste1 = this.comboBox1.SelectedValue;
