Windows Forms Combobox

I'm having difficulty adding and accessing items with values in a ComboBox.    if this was a WEB based form, I would use the ListItem object to  add text/value to a dropdown list.

This code below works for adding a item with value.  But in the SelectedIndexChanged event, the SelectedValue is always nothing.  I can see in debugging that  SelectedItem has the data I want, but how do I access just the value part?

 cboFilter.ComboBox.Items.Add(New With {Key .Text = "Settings", Key .Value = "-1"})
