.net - Programmatically Close A ComboBox Drop Down?

In a Windows Form application (VB.NET) I have a combo box and under certain conditions, when the user opens the DropDown list, I want to display a warning message.All of this works well: In the DropDown event, I check the conditions and if required I display the warning message.The problem is that when the user clicks on Yes on the warning message, I move to another tab on the main form and the drop down list still shows even though I've moved away from the tab containing the combo box.I've searched quite a bit and tried to set DroppedDown to False, call OnDropDownClosed, etc but nothing worked.It seems that when I try to close the drop down list from within the DropDown event, it doesn't work.

.net - Close BalloonTip Programmatically?
I have a Tray icon in my application. I am showing the balloon tip for 20 seconds, when I am loading something in the background. But, if the background load gets completed early, say in 10 seconds, I would like to hide the balloon tip. Currently the only way to hide the balloon tip is to click the close icon in the balloon tip.

Programmatically Add A Drop Down List In With Specific Pre-selected Item?
I've worked out how to create a DropDownList using the following code: <select id="salesPersonDropList" runat="server"></select> In my .aspx page, then my code behind loops through database output running:

Dim newListItem As ListItem
newListItem = New ListItem("Title", "Value")
salesPersonDropList.Items.Add(newListItem )

What I can't figure out is how to programatically set which of the List Items created is the one to be pre-selected in the rendered DropDownList, ie, how to create what I'd write in HTML as:

.net - Programmatically Close A TFS Work Item
I am attempting to import items from a legacy issue tracking system stored in an Excel sheet into Team Foundation Server. I loop through the rows of the Excel file successfully, and I can create new work items, but they are always in the Proposed state. If I attempt to change the state to Closed, then call the Validate method for the work item, I receive a validation error on the State property - InvalidListValue{4}.

Dim MyProj As Project = store.Projects("MyProject")
Dim WIT As WorkItemType = MyProj.WorkItemTypes("Task")
Dim WorkItem As WorkItem = WIT.NewWorkItem()


this is a CMMI task that I am trying to create and close. I wonder if I'm trying to skip over certain activities required by CMMI

Close Forms Created Programmatically?
In my program it detects if there is more than one monitor connected. It then creates a form on each monitor screen and you just click on the screen that you want the program to run on.

Here's where I'm having a problem. Everything works great, but when I load my MAIN form how would I call those programmatically created forms? I can't just do frmYou.close.

Here's the code I use to create the forms.

Public myScreen As New Point
Public ScreenReady As Boolean = False
Public sX As Integer'holds screen x width
Public sY As Integer'holds screen y height

Combobox - Drop Down In .NET?
I have a small requirement and that is: There are two combo boxes on a form and for populating the employee names and roles. I am populating the combo boxes as follows: I have created a class called "DbConnect" and in that there are 02 functions as:

Public Function getEmployees() As DataTable
Dim employeeDS As New DataSet
Dim employeeDA As New SqlDataAdapter("prc_emp_list", conn)
employeeDA.Fill(employeeDS, "employees")


The data is getting populated into the combo boxes correctly and my requirement is that when I select and employee from the first combo, his corresponding role should get selected in the second combo.

Drop Down Combobox, A List Of Options Are Available?
Is using Public Property the best way to achieve the following.From a drop down combobox, a list of options are available. Each option in the combobox has a number of public properties that need to be associated with it.When a option is selected, the user will then have two buttons that each call a different†sub, the appropriate options are passed to the sub.Each option will always have the same properties required to be passed.So I'm looking at something like this.

Public Class Parameters
Public Property server As String
Public Property replica As String
Public Propery path As String
End Class

Forms :: Drop-down List Combobox?
I have created a drop-down list box that holds 8 numbers representing a month span (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 25 months). In order to prevent users from typing just anything into the text box above the combo box, I changed it to a drop-down listbox. The other requirement that I was hoping to implement was for the user to be able to type a number, after which the selection would jump to the appropriate item (i.e. the user types in '1', and the selection jumps to 12). This partially works. It will jump to 12, for example, but immediately after the user types the '1', the Selected Index event changes. The user cannot scroll down or up after typing in a number.

Windows - ToolTip While Drop Down ComboBox
I have created a combo box in my project which takes a certain amount of numbers from a file. This Combo drops down the list of the numbers each of represents something. That something I want to be displayed in a tooltip when the mouse hovers on the combo box. Until now everything has gone fine. What I want now is to see the tooltip when the mouse rolls over the list of the dop down combo. How can I do that? Until now the internet didn't give me something to work on it. Is there some one to assist me on that?

For my application i'm trying to generate a datagridview with a comboboxcolumn in it. This combobox I wanna fill with some data from a table in my database.I've figured out how to add items to the combobox but I can't assign a value to it. The combobox is suposed to fill with product name items, and the value should be the weight of the product, so later on i can calculate the total weight.But now it's just displaying the product name, and the value is also the product name.

Select A ComboBox Item Which Is A Drop Down List
i seem to have a problem when i try to select a ComboBox item which is a drop down list. The ComboBox contains a list of various items where the user can select from a list, the type of query he/she would like to perform on an Access Database. Two of the items in the Drop Down List are "Employee Sales Between Specified Weeks" and the other item is "Employee Sales Between Specified Months" (without quotation). Now in my VB code, i have a really long If/ElseIf Statement which includes all the options the user can select. Additionally, if the user has selected a week query, he/she must select a From Week, a To Week and a Year (for example week 3 to week 5 year 2009). From Week is another combobox (1-53 weeks) and To Week is also another ComboBox (1-53).When the user selects a month query, he/she should select a† From Month from a ComboBox (1-12) and a To Month from another ComboBox (1-12) and the year from the same Combobox (e.g 2009).

ComboBox Problem - Combo Box Won't Drop Down After Cancelling Validation?
I've found some unexpected behaviour in my ComboBox, which I'm hoping someone can help me with. If focus is lost by pressing the†Return key on a form which has AcceptButton set, then after handling the Validating event and cancelling the validation,the ComboBox will not drop down any more. When you click on the drop-down arrow, the list drops down momentarilly then goes away again To reproduce this, create a new VB.NET Windows Forms application. Drop a Combo Box and a Button onto the default form, then add the following code:[code]....

Run this application, click on the Combo Box, enter some random text (e.g. "asdf"), then press Return. After this, click on the drop-down arrow on the Combo Box.I'm using Visual Basic 2010 Express on Windows 7 Home Premium.

VS 2010 Combobox Auto-complete Dropdown Won't Close

The auto complete dropdown will NOT close, no matter what I do. When I load the form, the dropdown is down with all the options displayed. I can type anything, and the options will narrow down, until an option is selected, then all the options reappear in the list. If I select an option, hit tab, enter, any key or mouse click, the list still doesn't close. If I change the DropDownStyle to DropDown or DropDownList, it works fine.
