Combobox - Format Items

Good Afternoon,

I have a combobox whose list is bound to DataSet1.Sales Growth Options.Sales
Growth. The data is double and I would like it displayed as a percentage. I
have tried two things:

1. I bound the data using DataSource and DisplayMember and then used the
following code:

Private Sub FormatPercent(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ConvertEventArgs)
If TypeOf e.Value Is Double Then
e.Value = CType(e.Value, Double).ToString("p")
End If
End Sub

Private Sub CashFlow1Form_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
AddHandler Me.SalesGrowthCombo.DataBindings("Text").Format, AddressOf
Me.FormatNumberWithDecimals

The result is that the first item in the list was formatted correctly, but
the drop-down list of items when you pressed the arrow wasn't.

2. Then I tried eliminating the DataSource and DisplayMember values and
replacing it with the following:

Private Sub CashFlow1Form_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim SalesGrowthItems As New Binding("Text", DataSet1, "Growth Rate
Options.Growth Rate")
Add Handler SalesGrowthItems.Format, AddressOf Me.FormatPercent

This resulted in only one item in my combobox. This one item was formatted.

If anybody could give me assistance, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Carrie
