Forms :: RowSource In .NET Comboboxes?

Sep 1, 2011

I have been setting DataSource for a series of combo boxes to the same table as they all display the same options. However, when I ran the project, any change in any one combo box makes all the others 'flip' to the same selected value. This is obviously wrong.

In Access, you have 'Control Source' which is the db field that is bound to the combo box and 'Row Source' can be a query or whatnot that several combo boxes can run 'independently'.Is there an equivalent option in VB.NET? I DO NOT want to manually enter the exact same options many times as that is hard to maintain, to say the least.

Just to repeat: it is not going to work to say DataSource = Row Source. if two combo boxes are set to the same data source, a selection in one automatically makes the other one select the same value. unless, of course, i am missing something.


Acess 2007 - Setting Combo Box Rowsource Property?

Aug 12, 2009

Trying to set a Combo Box RowSource to a field in a table that contains the choices separated by semi colons. Have tried both a query and a DLookup but it results in displaying the full contents of the table field, e.g. "10;12;14;16" rather than giving me the usual selection list

Forms :: Update Datagridview From Three Comboboxes?

May 5, 2009

I have three comboboxes in a form. The first is the parent of the second, which is the parent of the third. When they are all updated, a datagridview should be updated.

The problem is that the user can choose to change the value of either combobox, so I don't know which combobox's value is being changed. Therefore I now update the datagridview from the third combobox's selectedvaluechanged event. This unfortunately means that if the first combobox is changed, the second and third comboboxes selectedvalue events must trigger. As a consequence, when the first combobox is changed, the datagridview is being updated about six times (which doesn't work for me performancewise).

What I'd like to do is to call the updatedatagridview sub from either one of the three comboboxes, but only if the user has chosen to change that specific combobox's value (that is, get the form to only update the datagridview when the selectedvalues of all three comboboxes have been set).

Forms :: Populate Cascading/Dependent Comboboxes

Feb 12, 2010

How I can populate a combobox (combobox2) based on the selection made from another combobox (combobox1)? They are on different forms. Combobox1 lists locations, while combobox2 lists offices for each location. I would like it to work so that when the user clicks on combobox1 and makes a selection, the 2nd form loads with combobox2 showing all the offices for the selected location.

Forms :: ProcessTabKey Method - One Of ComboBoxes Skips

Nov 1, 2010

I'm trying to detect when the tab key was pressed and intercept it in certain cases. Since the form I'm working with has many fields, I've tried overriding ProcessTabKey so that I don't have a separate sub for each control. However, I've found that after adding a simple ProcessTabKey method, each time I press tab it skips one of the combo boxes. In order to duplicate the situation, using Visual Basic Express 2008, create a new Windows Forms project and add 5 combo boxes to the form - allowing each to automatically get an incrementing TabIndex.

Then add the following code the form:
Public Class Form1
Protected Overrides Function ProcessTabKey(ByVal forward As Boolean) As Boolean
End Function
End Class

Now when you run the project, you'll see that each time you press tab it skips one of the combos.

Renaming ComboBoxes Causes Compiler - Cross Linked ComboBoxes?

this is a subset of a previously posted problem, I have narrowed down my issue and am reposting a question from this thread: [URL] I have apparently confused the compiler by renaming some comboboxes in Visual Basic .net express? (See relevant code below) I think the confusion is in who should handle what, with two routines named with variations of ComboBox1 and one handling the other ( it confuses me just trying to interpret it mentally):

Filter ComboBoxes DataSource Based On Another ComboBoxes Changes?

Oct 28, 2011

I have a form with 4 comboboxes and a button.  The first combobox is enabled, but the rest of the controls are disabled. When the form is opened I fill the first combobox (cbxMethod) with a datatable. When the user selects something in cbxMethod the next combobox (cbxStudy) will be filled and so on.  When the last combobox (cbxAnalyte) has a selected value I want to enable the button and give it focus so the user can move forward with the program.  I basically want to force the user to move from one combobox to the other, until all are filled.I am currently using the SelectionValueChange event, but this event only fires when the user changes the value with their mouse or hits the Enter key, not when the user hits the Tab key.

Comboboxes All Select The Same?

Putting The Comboboxes In A Datagridview

Apr 2, 2009

I have a window app that has a number of combo boxes on it. These are being populated from a number of XML files and all this works like a charm. The problem i have is when it comes to putting the comboboxes in a datagridview. I have set up my columns and have set the first column to be a combobox but i'm having problems referencing this so that i can set the datasource to populate it.

I've looked everywhere but cant seem to find how to reference this control. Once this has been selected it will populate a second combo box based on the data from the first. I think i can sort this out, if i could only work out how to set the datasource of the first combo programatically.

Try/Catch For Array Using 2 Comboboxes

Apr 21, 2012

I'm working on a college VB project using an 2D array with 2 combo boxes. One combo box selects a size and the other selects a style. I have everything working correctly with calculations except I need each combo box to pop up a message box if the user doesn't make a selection in a combo box. It will pop up for one combo box, but not the other. My question is how do I get the program to pop up a message box for each combo box independently? Should I use Try/Catch or would another method work better? (I'm using VB Studio 2010)

Private Sub CalculateToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CalculateToolStripMenuItem.Click

Using DataGridView Comboboxes In Tandem

Dec 1, 2011

What I want to do is use two drop down comboxes (Comboboxes 1 & 2)in tandem in a databound datagridview.Both comboboxes are bound to tables in an SQL 2005 database.By this I mean select an item in combobox 1 and have its display member appear in that combobox.This is usually text.The value member for combobox 1 to be displayed in the combobox 2 which is also text.The value member from combobox 1 has identical values to the display member of combobox 2 in the database tables.If I need to change the display member in combobox 2, as all situations have their exceptions, I want to do this without changing combobox 1.The value member for combobox 2 is numeric and is put into another cell in the DGV for carrying out calculations.I have managed to get the display of combobox 1 working on its own and ignoring the value member.I have done the same with combobox 2 and have the value member working correctly.

Can databound comboboxes be used in this manner or will not allow this type of operation.I have not done this with any code. I tried to get my required operation through the edit facility in the DGV.When attempting to run the program, it does not compile and throws an error which basically says "You have done something wrong.Sort it out."Typical Microsoft help! Can it be done using code in the datasets or binding sources?

Using Datatables As Datasource For Comboboxes?

Apr 20, 2010

I use single column datatables in combination with the .DisplayMember and .DataSource property to populate comboboxes. Data for these datatables I get from a MySQL database. All this is working fine, but I noticed some behavior for which I can't find an explanation, and am not sure of if it can be prevented somehow.Some of the datatables are used for different comboboxes on different tabs. The behavior found is that with comboboxes that have the same datatable as datasource. If I select an item in 1 combobox, the others automatically select the same item.

-Is this normal, because I couldn't find any documentation on this behavior?

-Can it be prevented, and if so how?

I could use a for next loop and manually add each item to the combobox, but using .DataSource is so much cleaner and more efficient.

3 Comboboxes, Donot Want Same Data Repeated?

Oct 30, 2009

I've run into a bit of a roadblock trying to figure out how to programmatically not allow the same data in multiple comboboxes. I'm usnig VS2008 and I have 3 comboboxes on a form, all with the same data, say "apple", "orange", and "red". The comboboxes are nothing more than a user definable sorting method on which gets calculated first. When I use the .SelectedItemChanged event on any of these, I'll obviously be duplicating. Any idea on how I can program to automatically switch the combobox that is duplicated to the value that is missing? I don't want to hard code it as further down the road I will have up to 7 comboboxes. Below is what I started with coding. Not sure if it is the best way to go about it, but it works on 4 of the 6 combinations.

All ComboBoxes Updating When Selection Made

Mar 1, 2011

I have a relatively simple application that uses a series of combo boxes to ask questions. These combo boxes are bound to a table with 2 columns in it "RSN" and "RSN_ID". I'm using one table adapter to feed the form (and these boxes) once the main form is loaded. The problem I'm having is when I change one of the boxes, they all change to the same value, almost like they have the exact data source (which they do) but shouldn't you be able to make different selections even using the same table adapter? I have to run 20 queries at loadtime, or create 20 table adapters.

My current setup is like this:
Data Source: table that feeds the combobox
Display Member: RSN (from combo box table)
Value Member: RSN_ID(from combo box table)
Selected Value: Form's main binding source, unique to each combo box, where the selection is actually saved.

This works perfect when using one combobox, but as soon as I bound all of them I ran across this...
