Combobox - When Select A Value From The Combobox The Selection Won't Validate?

Feb 22, 2012

I'm having a problem with combo boxes. I usually use Java and it's been awhile since I used VB but I never remember having this much difficulty.My application is using an SDF file. From Data Sources, I drag the details on one of my Tables to my Form to get all of the fields. Three of them are comboboxes. Each of the three is an INT64 and each corresponds to a primary key in a different table. I click the tasks button on a combobox and for data source I select the appropriate table that has the data to go with the combobox, for display member I select the field that I want users to see, and for value member I select the primary key. Then I run a quick test and start the app, open the form, and add a new record. When I select a value from the combobox the selection won't validate because it doesn't think it's an INT64 like it should be. It seems to be using the display member as the actual value instead because if I change display member to the primary everything works great.

Select A Particular Value On A Combobox By Looping Through Combobox Items?

Jan 5, 2012

I have a form in my application used to take the data about the returned stock. The form contains two comboboxes. One, named combobox5, contains invoice numbers and the other, named combobox3, contains party codes. Both the comboboxes are pre_loaded using sqldataadapter.

Now what i want is to change the party code in combobox3 when the invoice number is changed in combobox5. Elaborating it further, When Stock is issued the party code is stored along with the invoice number to keep track of to which party was the stock issued. Now when stock is returned i want to keep track that which party has returned the stock and i want that the party code should be automatically selected when the invoice number is changed and it should be what is stored in the database against that particular invoice number....

I'm using the following code for doing so:

Private Sub ComboBox5_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox5.SelectedIndexChanged
' defines a new connection to the database
Dim con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=TAHA;Initial Catalog=ADT;Integrated Security=True")

Combobox Bug - Text Typed In Combobox Appears In Another Control (textbox) On The Form?

Feb 20, 2012

I have a tab control application, each tab loads a particular user control and each of those user controls will then add other user controls that are used amongst other the user controls.  For example, I have an "ucQuotes" page and an "ucInventory" page, when the specific tab is selected, the "uc****" user control is loaded on that page, and in the case of "ucQuotes" and "ucInventory" they both use a control called "ucPartNumber"; a user control consisting of a combobox, textbox, and button.  I have no issues reusing the shared user controls, in this case.  My problem arises with my "ucQuickPrice" control, as it is always present at the bottom of the tab control form (separate from the tabcontrol, but on the same form), and it too uses ucPartnumber.

Here's my issue, as I type into the ucPartnumber combobox, the text I type does not appear in the combobox, it appears in the textbox of the ucPartnumber control that is being used on the tabcontrol page. There are no shared instances of ucPartNumber, nor do I have this issue between typing on one tab page and the text showing on the user control of another tab page.I tried just creating the ucPartNumber controls on the ucQuickPrice control, not adding a new instance of ucPartnumber on the .Load event, and the issue persists. 

The combobox(s) in question are bound programmatically with about 40,000 items, ".datasource = dataset.tablename" not to a bindingsource.  Autocomplete is set to none, I added code to utilize tool tips and the basic combobox filtering functionality.  Is this a bug, or is there something I'm neglecting? I'm about 95% complete with this application, and this just happened today.  I made the decision, to just reuse the ucPartNumber control on the ucQuickPrice control (originallly it's size and orientation would not fit, but I added some coding to detect what parent is adding ucPartNumber and to change its appearance accordingly).  Before, I made this change, I did not have this problem. And, in trying to go back to how I had things set up before the change, the problem will not go away. if the whole control within a control verbage I used is a bit confusing, let me know and I'll try to better explain what is happening.  At this point, I'm going to close and reopen vbexpress, as when I started this ordeal, vb started acting weird and wanted me to save all my work, it usually does this before locking up.

Make The Combobox Go Back To The Original Text Of The Combobox?

Jun 19, 2009

I have a combobox..... When a user clicks on the list inside the combobox my webbrowser opens to the selected items to make the combobox go back to the original text of the combobox?

Example: Combobox list
---- Select Item ----


When the user see's the screen the ---- Select Item ---- is visible. When a user clicks a teams name it opens the teams website and the name stays in the box. I want it to go back to ---- Select Item ---- immediately after they click a list item.

Filter Combobox Contents By Text In Another Combobox

Jun 22, 2010

Brand new to VB 2008 Express, but have done some work in VB 6. Not sure what I'm missing, but here goes. I have two comboboxes linked to an Access 2007 database. One box lists the names of the States in the US.

This is what I used for the Table Adapter Configuration Wizard for the combobox "State" SELECT ST_UID, ST_NAME FROM STATE

For the combobox County I used: SELECT ST_UID, CTY_NAME FROM COUNTY ST_UID is an Integer.

I created a label with a bound value to STATE.ST_UID so that when a user selects the name of a state from the State box the appropriate ST_UID populates the label, (i.e, California has an ST_UID = 5).

The problem is when a state is selected, I only want the Counties for that state to appear in the County box, i.e, COUNTY.ST_UID = 5 if California is the selected state.

I then tried to convert the value in the st_uid label to an integer:


This is what I last tried when again using the Table Adapter Configuration Wizard for the table that populates the County box: SELECT ST_UID, CNTY_NAME FROM COUNTY Where ST_UID = 'StUID' Order By st_uid, cnty_name

What I'm getting is a "Data type mismatch in criteria expression." I'm sure my error is something so simple.

How To Use Combobox To Select Records

Apr 20, 2010

I have a form with controls on it which are binded to a table, I have records selecters and so on... Just a simple display and edit form(yes I also want to be able to edit them so...) I created this form just by dragging items from the Data sources window.

Now I want to add a combobox which has a list of titles. And here comes the difficult part: When I select a title in the combobox, all the other controls show the matching info(matching to the title), in other words the datatable which is attached/binded to the controls must move to the right record. I have added a query to the combobox , which has two columns: ID and Title. the displaymember is Title and the Valuemember is ID. So I must look in the datatable for the right ID.

Select An Item In Combobox?

I have a combo box with a list of book conditions. When a book is loaded into the form, the condition the book has needs to be selected. How can I do this? Here's what i have: Excellent Very Good Good Fair Poor just for example, how would i select "Good" WITHOUT USING THE INDEX? The database knows the condition text, and condition id. I need to select the condition in the combo box with either. However, I don't know how to add the condition id to the items in the combo box. How would I do this in Visual Basic 2008? **EDIT** I forgot to mention, although i am using a database, i am NOT using SQL Server. I just need a way to select it with a variable containing either the id or condition.

I have a form (form5) with 1 combobox and 1 datagrid.The datagrid loads 5 collumns "ID", "firm", "Fname", "mname", "Lname" The collumn "firm" will have some double firms with people in the other collumns ID Firm Fname Mname Lname1 AA John N West2 AA Jim L East3 BB Harry Sick Long4 CC Barry N Klote etc.I would like to select the firm from a combobox and filter the datagrid so that it only displays the selected firm and the people that are registred here. Furthermore i want the combobox that i use for selecting the firms to lose the doubles. I can load the datagrid and load the Combobox, but selecting is only pointing to the record (highlights in the grid) i choose and doesn't filter. Is there anyone that can give me a clue on how to solve this.

ComboBox Event To Select From Access Database

Jun 5, 2011

I am using VB 2008 Express to connect to an Access 2007 database. I have a combo box called SelectYearMonth that is populated by the database. When I used the Access report VBA, I used the AfterUpdate() event to calculate a sum. I need to know how to do the same operation in VB 2008 Express using the SelectedIndexChanged event of the combo box.

When I made a report in Access using VBA I coded my calculation as:
Me.ExactReprintTextbox = DSum("Pages", "HBELP_FINAL_Q", "YEARMONTH = " & [SelectYearMonth] & " AND JOBTYPE = 'E'")
While this works great with Access VBA, this syntax does not work in VB 2008 Express. How do I code this in VB 2008 Express?

I need to calculate the sum of all "Pages" of a particular "JOBTYPE" in the Access database for the YEARMONTH selected in the combobox. I have a query in Access called "JobTypeExact_Query" that contains all the pages of that particular JOBTYPE that I need. What I need to do is limit the calculation results to the YEARMONTH selected in the combobox.

Select A ComboBox Item Which Is A Drop Down List

Feb 28, 2011

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).

Control Arrays - Combobox Select A Datasource At Runtime

Jul 26, 2010

I have a form where I have to use control arrays to create a multiple input form i.e. rather than processing one transaction at a time up to 16 transactions must be processed.  The following really havent given me much problems at this moment labels and textboxes.  I use a for construct to create all the controls including a combobox.  This is where my question comes in this form combobox has to be linked to a  table in a database.  But furthermore and this is where it gets complicated for me anyway each seperate combobox must move independly if i select row 5 in the table in combobox 4 combobox 5 which is havent touched should still be on row 1.  How do I accomplish this.  I'm using a webservice.  I have tried passing a loaded dataset .  The code that loaded the dataset is as follows

Dim DSInfo As New Project1.localhost4.AccInfo
DSInfo.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials


this code doesnt however provide a link to the table equallly creating a dataset in the combobox method ,loading it and then setting it as datasource also provides no link.  I know i'm missing something.

Fill Combobox With List And Select Current Item?

Dec 11, 2009

I have 2 linked DB tables, Artists and Albums using ArtistID as the primary/foreign key.When I want to add a new Album, I have a new form open and I can fill a combobox with the list of Artists to choose from and edit all the details then save to the database.

However, when I want to edit the Album info, I can't seem to get the Artist associated with the Album, as well as all the rest of the Artists from that table, (in case I need to change the Artist associated with the Album).The information required comes from 2 linked tables, so that's where I'm getting lost.An example of this is when a person edits their profile on a webpage, for instance, a list of countries is usually listed in a combobox and the one selected is the country they selected when filling out the form previously, however, they still have the option to change it.
