How to Add to Bounded ComboBox

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


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


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



    any thoughts?

    Thank you.
