Default ComboBox, ListBox


I am creating a WinForm that loads reports into a RichTextBox control. I want the user to be able to select the current report from a combobox or listbox.

I have the report information in a database. Some of the report Names are identical, but each row has a unique key value. I want the combobox (or listbox) to display the report name (no problem), but I want the value of the selection to be the unique key value (problem) like in ASP and ASPX with the dropdown list. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance for the help...I am on a tight deadline here.

you need to set the set the datasource


me.ListBox1.DataSource = dsData.tables(0)
me.ListBox1.DisplayMember = "Column Name"
me.ListBox1.ValueMember = "Column Name"

this.ListBox1.DataSource = dsData.Tables(0);
this.ListBox1.DisplayMember = "Column Name";
this.ListBox1.ValueMember = "Column Name";
