Retrieving SelectedValue from ComboBox programmatically?

BlakeMcKenna asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-27

Here is a strange request but I am not really sure how to do this. I have a ComboBox (CB) that has two items in it. It's a DataBound CB so it has ValueMember/DisplayMember properties set. There is a default value selected. When certain processing is done within the app, the SelectedValue needs to change to the other Item in the CB without the user manually selecting it. Is there a way of Looping through the CB's Items?
