How to Add to Bounded ComboBox

  • 10 years ago

    Hello,

     

    How do you add new items, during runtime, to a comboBox bounded to a database.  The

     

    this.comboBox1.Items.Add(“<Select Something>”);

    or

    this.comboBox1.Items.Insert (“<Select Somgthing>”); don’t work.  Which end up giving this error:

     

     

    any thoughts?

    Thank you.

    You can't add an Item directly in a control which is bounded to a database.

    First you should add that record in the database, and after that refresh the dataset to which your control is getting data.
