Dynamically adding values to bound combobox??

I have a bound combobox the appears on a cell within the column of my bound
grid when the user clicks on a cell n(In my vb.net WinForm app).
I am trying to allow the adding of an item to that bound combo by allowing
the user to dynamically type in the new value directly in the combo box
whcih in turn updates the lookup table and then when they have finished
leaves that particular cell on the grid with the correct value.

Seems straight-forward enough but I have been having a time especially with
the return value from the lookup, etc. Any ideas (and code)?

I used an ArrayList to fill my combo box and when a user added a new entry
that did not exist in the combo box I added it to the array list and then
sorted. After which the entry would appear in the drop down box.

Hi Aaron,

Do you mean the ComboBox and DataGrid control in VB.NET
or
the DB Grid and DB ComboBox in VB6 ActiveX control?

If it is the first case, then the ComboBox is a control covering onto the
datagrid cell.
So you may need to update the data into table by manual.
Based on my understanding, you want to add some item into the combobox and
then update into the table, i.e. the cell value in the datagrid. But when
you add more than one item into the combobox, which one should be update
into the table?

Did I misunderstand your meaning?
If you have any question please post here.
I also hope that you can post some code to demostate what you want to do.
