Binding DataRow Array to ComboBox

Hi,
How can I bind DataRow array to ComboBox.
I tried setting

DataSource -> DataRow Array
DisplayMember -> ColumnName

But it was showing
"System.Data.Da taRow"
for every item in the combobox instead of fetching the
value from the row using the given column name.

Can anybody suggest me how to get it correctly.

Thanks,
Shravan.

Hi,

Row is an object which has no ColumnName member (it has the field with that
name).
Why don't you rather bind DataTable, or, if you just need some rows -
DataView?

Hi Miha,
The problem is that we are binding the combo to a
dataview whose table has a list of items, the combo is
datagridcolumns tyle of type combo, in the grid we are
adding items, whenever an item is added to the grid, user
has to change the row, then in the combo list the item
already assigned is removed, this is done using a DataView
whose filter filters the added row (by changing one column
of the row which is in the filtered column), setting the
values in the table, filter being applied on the dataview
internally, something is causing that sometimes the
changed row corresponding item is not allowed to be
selected in the combo programmaticall y using selectedindex.
Thanks,
Shravan.

I think that my problem is similar to the one entitled "Subject: Complicated Data Binding Question" of 7/2/2005 Simply: I have a pair of combo (dropdown List) boxes that I want to display data in a parent/child relationship This is easy to do with dataGrid controls ( Where m_Families is a strongly typed dataset with 2 tables, Parents and children and a forign key relationship between them)

I have a dataset called "employees" with a field called "gender". How do I bind a combobox to it so that the user is only allowed to select "M" or "F" and that value ends up in the dataset? Note that M and F are not in a table of a database. I have entered them directly into the Items collection of the combobox via the property editor. Thanks

Essentially, InsertAT is broken! For the past couple of hours, I've been getting this "Parameter name: '-2147483550' is not a valid value for 'index'." error. Apparently, its caused by having manually inserted a row in the table bound to the Combo box. The InsertAt Method of adding a row just does not work. Hope this helps anyone with this problem. john
