My problem is
Am using SQL SERVER as database with VB.NET as Front End.
I do have a database Known as Trackers with a Table known as Emp
In Emp,I have the fields as Name,Surname,Emp_ID,Address.
Here I have made the Emp_ID in the database..its Identity to "Yes"..so that the database automatically generates unique number.
I have a combobox named Cmb_EmpName and it contains the Name of the Employees(ie both the Name and Surname together)....suppose in the database i have two same names...ie eg: Tom Alex and Emp_ID=12, and another row Tom Alex and Emp_ID=13 (Here Emp_ID is being automatically generated...)
so in the Combo box named Cmb_EmpName,it will populate two names...ie Tom Alex
When I click on Tom Alex,ie the sescond one,it takes only the first.
In Visual Basic, I know how to do.
Code in Visual Basic
In the FormLoad
Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs1 As ADODB.Recordset
Dim i As Integer
Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rs1 = New ADODB.Recordset
rs1.Open "SELECT Emp_ID,Emp_Name+' '+Emp_Surname as Name from Employees", cnn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly
Do While Not rs1.EOF
Cmb_EmpName.ItemData(Cmb_EmpName.NewIndex) = rs1.Fields("Emp_ID")// Here is where we are storing every value of Emp_ID to the corresponding Name
so that if there are more than one same names,i can click any names because the Emp_ID is unique for each rows.
ie Tom Alex With Emp_ID 12
Tom Alex With Emp_ID 13
Like Wise in VB.NET..is there any code for this line
because in VB.NET,I couldn't find a property known as ItemData or New Index....In VB.NET there is only Items,Selected Index,Selected Items,Select..
Is there any similiar words like ItemData,New Index of Visual Basic in that of the VB.NET
So can anyone help me out of this problem....
I know am putting too much trouble on you guys..sorry but thanks lot
