In my form I have a DataGridView bound to a BindingSource that has a DataSet as DataSource. I also have some TextFields and ComboBoxes on the form that are bound to different columns in the DataSet through the BindingSource. The idea is that the values in the columns on the selected row in the DataGridView are reflected in the other controls on the form. Maybe I make it sound a bit complicated, but it's fairly easy to connect the TextFields, and also the ComboBoxes bound to tables in the dataset.
My problem is that this time I want to set the items in the ComboBox from an array and not from a table in the DataSet. This is what I've tried:
Me.ComboBox.DataBindings.Add(New System.Windows.Forms.Binding("SelectedValue", Me.TblBindingSource, "ColumnName", True))
Dim ItemArray(2) As String
ItemArray(0) = ""
ItemArray(1) = "Default"
ItemArray(2) = "User-set"
ComboBox.DataSource = ItemArray
Me.ComboBox1.DataBindings.Add(New System.Windows.Forms.Binding("SelectedValue", Me.Tbl1BindingSource, "WiDMethodX", True))
Me.ComboBox1.DataSource = Me.Tbl2BindingSource
Me.ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "SomeColumn"
Me.ComboBox1.ValueMember = "SomeColumn"
SelectedValue is used in conjunction with the
ValueMember property, but since your array list doesn't have descriptive fields, that won't work.
SelectedItem for your binding:
Me.ComboBox.DataBindings.Add(New Binding("SelectedItem", _ Me.TblBindingSource, "ColumnName", True))
