I created a combobox and binded it with MS access table using following code:

this->oleDbDataAdapter1->SelectCommand->CommandText="SELECT DISTINCT Profile_Name FROM Profiles";
DataTable^dt= dataSet1->Tables["Profiles"];
comboBox1->DataSource= dt;
comboBox1->DisplayMember = "Profile_Name";

I got the correct profile name I needed in the combobox. I tried it using textbox,


However,it always return me "System.Data.DataRowView". How can I get the correct selected item?

Forgive me for keep spamming question as I m really working under very limited time constraint. Thanks in advance.

Haven't worked with forms etc for a while,so I might be wrong, but: textBox1->[b]Text[/b]=comboBox1->SelectedItem->ToString(); should work.
