Hi there,

i need some help as i'm new with using comboboxes :)

i have a table in a MS access database named "CUSTOMER" and in my vb form i have a combobox (name: cmb1). I want to display the names of my customers in my combobox when the form loads and when i search the combobox and select a particular person, i want the other values in the table to be displayed in textboxes......

any ideas please??? thank you very much

select cobobox and in right you will see the properties
1/datasource make its value the table in dataset you want
2/ ValueMember make its value the coulmn name (name of custeomer)

when your form load you fill dataset


now the list of comboBox has the names of ur customers

i hope this help

hi and thanks for your reply. however i have been able to do that fill. my query is this.

I have 3 textboxes on my form.
when i select the item from the combobox i need the 3 textboxes to be filled with the data corresponding to that field. ( what i'm trying to say is that i have a table in macces with 4 rows, one of them is the field chosen in the combobox. now when i select the item i want the textboxes to display the latter of the record)


i used dataset and dataadptor for display the other data in text box
the sql query will be like this

select email , name
from customer
where id =?

then douple click in combobox and write this code (douple click means the code will excute when user select value )

'here you select the row from table with id that user choose from comboBox
OleDbDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters("ID").Value = Me.ComboBox1.Text


        TextBox1.Text = DataSet21.Tables("customer").Rows(0).Item("email")

        TextBox2.Text = DataSet21.Tables("customer").Rows(0).Item("name")

i hope this what u want
