VS 2010 DatagridviewComboBoxColumn Dynamically Populating Items Collection?

I am trying to create a basic quoting tool but got stuck on how to clear and change the item collection from within a combobox for a datagrid.What we have is a list of 4 columns like a. Device b.TypeofService c.State d.Price Inside a sql database. Data is also structure like above as well.

I have a datagridview where the user will populate a,b,c and the price will be display and a total at the end. However a,b, and c aren't related in my current application. The combobox will show all possible dinstinct values for each column.

This works fine but I want to refine the application to only show the values of b. which are in the database after the user select the value for a. I have tried searching on how to do this as I assume to the Contry/State/City situation but could not find anything for a datagridview control in VB.NET.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? If I cannot do this dynamically from within a datagridview I was thinking of maybe creating three combo box outside and having it populating the datagridview afterwards but it wouldn't be as nice.

Add Items In The DatagridViewComboboxColumn Of DatagridView During Runtime
My application is in VS2008 and coded in

I have a datagridView(DGV) on one of my form.DGV contains a column of type DatagridViewComboboxColumn.I have another column of SrNo.

Consider Table1 to be the table from where my DatagridView is filled which contains following fields SrNo,Value1,Value2.

My requirement is i want to fill the values in my DatagridViewComboboxColumn from Table1.The DatagridViewComboboxColumn's combobox should contain values of columns Value1,Value2 of Table1.

Sample data of Table1
SrNo Value1 Value2
1 2 3
2 4 5

As data in datagridView is filled from Table1 the data of SrNo column of Table1 is also populated in one of the column of DGV.

Now my DatagridViewComboboxColumn combobox should contain the values of Value1 and Value2 of Respective SrNo.

Like Row one of my DGV has SrNo 1 as first value,so the Value1 and Value2 of SrNo 1 should be added to the row's DatagridViewComboboxColumn.

Select distinct Value1,Value2 From Table1 where SrNo=DGV.items(0,DGV.currentcell.rowIndex).value.H ope this Query willl make things more clear

C# - DataGridViewComboBoxColumn Very Slow With Lots Of Items?
I have a DataGrid, with several columns. One of them is DataGridViewComboBoxColumn. I have a lot of items in this column - more than 1000 - and I need all of them. So grouping is not an option - all items must be there, users must be able to select from all.The problem is, DataGridViewComboBoxColumn becomes painfully slow, when number of items is about 1000, and above. This issues is well known to Microsoft, it dates back to Visual Studio 2005: [URL]...The problem is still present in Visual Studio 2010. Any ideas how to solve this?

Is it possible to fill DataGridViewComboBoxColumn with data partially? I mean (that was functionality fully working in Access), when you click DataGridViewComboBoxColumn, some items are displayed (lets say, 100 items). When you scroll down to the latest item, others are loaded (another 100) and so on. I don't see any other option to make DataGridViewComboBoxColumn working faster? Problem is, how to implement this? Has anyone meet that problem before?

Populating Collection With Arrays?
Dim A As Collection
Set A = New Collection
Dim Arr2(15, 5)


How can I access the Arr2 through A? For example, I want to do the following:

A.Item(1) (1,1) = 15

so the above would change the first element of the first two-dimensional array inside the collection...

How can I go about creating a div and then populating it with values from a table?

Make A ComboBox Of A DataGridViewComboBoxColumn Accept User New Items?
Using a DataGridViewComboBoxColumn, the goal is to make the ComboBoxes accept user's new items and also the possibility of choosing items that are already present.I'm aware of using EditingControlShowing event of the DataGridView to change the DropDownStyle of the DataGridViewComboBoxEditingControl at run time to allow this, but I'm wondering if this can be done at a lower level.

What I'm doing now is extending DataGridViewComboBoxColumn, DataGridViewComboBoxCell and DataGridViewComboBoxEditingControl, hoping to change the EditingControl's DropDownStyle in the moment I instantiate it. So far, no luck.The debugger shows the right assignment is being executed, but nonetheless, the DropDownStyle is popping at the EditingControlShowing (using the event for debugging purposes) as DropBoxList, not DropBox, which is the intent.

Here follow the classes:

Public Class DataGridViewComboBoxColumnALT
Inherits System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewComboBoxColumn
Public Sub New()

VS 2005 Populating A Collection From Some Tables In The Database?
I am populating a collection from some tables in the database which serves as a look-up from controls (combobox) I am using but what I want is rather than hitting the database each time can I just cache the collection and get the collection from the cache? The look-up table may or may not change all the time so I would want to have a way to validate if the cached collection is still valid or not.

C# - Dynamically Populating Column Headers In A Gridview?
I have a website with a gridview that currently has exam questions displaying vertically in each row like this:

Name question answer
Joe question1 answer1
Joe question2 answer2


But I would like to change it, so that each question is a header, like this:

Name question1 question2 question3
Joe answer1 answer2 answer3
Jill answer1 answer2 answer3

This makes it more readable since each user is only listed once.I would like to stick with a gridview instead of rewriting all my code.I am actually binding my data to the gridview via some other programmers class. I am using LINQ like this:

Return (From entry In report.FetchAllEntries()
Select questionID = entry.Question.QuestionID,
userID = entry.Session.User.ID,

Listbox Items Colour - Two Types Of Items Populating In A Listbox (checked Listbox)
I am using VB.NET (version 2008). I have two types of items populating in a listbox (checked listbox). For example: lets say one is type "A" and other is "Type B". Their names maybe same so if the user sees those items in listbox then he won;t be able to determine their type until he click on them and checks out its properties. I wanted that I add each item to listbox and colour them so that blue for example means type "A" is there and red means the other. So this way I will be able to know at a glance that how many item of what type is present. I guess it may not be possible to do that in a standard checkedlistbox. I am also using component factory's krypton controls which enhance the gui of an application. But I dunno if I can progress using that.

How Come In .NET A Listcontrol Has No Items Collection But In ASP.NET It Does
I have a simple subroutine that loads a list from a database. I would like to be able to use the same code to load a ListBox and a ComboBox by defining the list type as the common abstract base class ListControl, and see no reason why I can't - except that VB.NET doesn't expose/implement/whatever the Items collection in ListControl. I note with frustration that this is not the case in ASP.NET. At moment my code is ugly because I have to check what type of list control I have passed in, in order to cast it to a type that has an Items collection. (My code may be ugly for numerous other reasons too, but it is beautiful to me). Is there a way to rewrite the code to avoid having to go through the testing and casting nonsense? (I've stripped it down somewhat so that all that remains is where the problem lies).

Sub loadList(ByVal db As SqlDatabase, ByVal strCommandText As String, lstHost As ListControl, Optional bClearList As Boolean = True, Optional bIsListBox As Boolean = True)
If bClearList Then

Validate Items Of A .NET Collection Against Each-other?
I have a class that represents some business object, such as this:

Public Class MyObject
Inherits SomeBaseObject ' Implements INotifyPropertyChanged and IDataErrorInfo
Private mMyVariable as Integer
Public Property MyVariable as Integer


SomeBaseObject implements both INotifyPropertyChanged and IDataErrorInfo, such that a Validate method will populate the appropriate IDataErrorInfo fields when setting the property values.I also have a collection that supports change events, which I eventually bind to a WPF DataGrid.

Public Class MyCollection
Inherits ObservableCollection(Of MyObject)
End Class

Part 1: Let's say that I have a business rule which says that no two items in my collection may have the same value for MyVariable. How do I set up my events (or implement additional interfaces somewhere) to perform this cross-item validation whenever the property value changes on any item in the collection?

Part 2: Suppose I have a list of integers such that whenever I add a new MyObject item to an instance of MyCollection or change the MyVariable property on any item already in the collection, the value of the MyVariable property must exist in this list of integers?

Define A Collection In .NET So Can Reference Items Either By Value Or Name
I often have a class defined and I also define another class that is simply a collection of the other class. To do this I found it easiest just to define the other class as Inherits List(Of Type). The reason I define a collection class is to add extra functionality to the collection. Take the following code for example.

Class Car
Property Name As String
Property Year As Short


how can I define my own collection so that I can reference it by index or name like that. Right now I can only reference it by index.

Removal Of Enumerable Items From A Collection?
removal of items in a collection or list using the " For Each " statement to iterate through.This code works:

For Each item As ListViewItem In ListView1.SelectedItems

This code does not:

For Each itemChecked As Object In CheckedListBox1.CheckedItems

I have been reading on this for hours today to find out why the first code block works, but the second does not.What I've learned is the "For Each" statement implements the IEnumerable interface. I have seen these terms used many times and scratched my head when it didn't make scense, then just moved along, something to strain my brain about later.Today was later...So since the IEnumerable interface is used, the .GetEnumerator method of the IEnumerable interface is called upon at the beginning of the "For Each" block, this evaluates the collection or list as in: For Each item As ListViewItem In myCollection This is done at the beginning of the iteration through the myCollection, so if the myCollection is altered as in:

For Each itemChecked As Object In myCollection

The altering of the list returns the error:List that this enumerator is bound to has been modified. An enumerator can only be used if the list does not change.
