i have 3 combo boxes on a form  in vb.net. the 3rd combo needs the selection from both of the previous. How do i check that both cb1 and 2 have items selected?
there is no order of selection the user can change 1 or 2 in either order as long as i can make cb3 respond

I just wrote this
  If (String.IsNullOrEmpty(CBNote.SelectedItem)) And (String.IsNullOrEmpty(CBScaleType.SelectedItem)) Then
            Call GetCBData("usp_GetChords")
        End If

not sure if its correct way

You can use the ComboBox.SelectedIndex property to know if a item has been selected in the ComboBox. It returns the zero base index of the selected item or if no item has been selected -1.
