Using a Data Dictionary to Populate a Combobox


Public Function LoadCombo(ByVal myCombo As ComboBox) As Boolean

Dim n As Long, nCount As Long

Dim dict = New Dictionary(Of Long, String)()
For n = 0 To nCount
dict.Add("ID value from File", "Name String from File")

Next

If nCount > 0 Then
Dim bs As New BindingSource()
bs.DataSource = dict

With myCombo
.Items.Clear()
.DisplayMember = "Value"
.ValueMember = "Key"
.DataSource = bs
End With
LoadCombo = true
Else
myCombo.Items.Clear()
LoadCombo = false
End If

End function
