I have a combobox that is populated by a SQL querry. Problem is the first item of the comboBox where normally the comboBox.text go is blank. You have to drop down the menu item for the items to appear. I want to comboBox to populated with the first item in the first row. I am currently populating my comboBox with the add property

while (oleDbDataReader1.Read() == true)
{
    comboBox1.Items.add = oleDbDataReader1.GetString(0) ;   
}

This though is skipping the first field. How can I add the first result from the query to the first field in my comboBox?

Thanks

I think if you changed the DropDownStyle from DropDown to DropDownList*
it may help you

*: from ComboBox control properties window

Hi

I have a tabbed control. Tab1 is for adding new customer details and Tab2 is for searching for existing customers (from a comboBox) and then adding additional information for that customer.

How can I make the results of a stored procedure be automatically displayed in the comboBox(DropDownList) as soon as the user clicks on that tab?

Thanks

Elmo

you are using sqldatareader or sql dataadapter

rs.Open "insert into traveldet values('" & Text1.Text & "' ,'" & saccdate.Text & "','" & sretdate.Text & "','" & stype.Text & "','" & smodel.Text & "','" & Combo1.Text & "','" & Combo2.Text & "',null,'" & snopass.Text & "')", conn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic, -1
