Default Binding ComboBox and TextBox to each other.


It is simple way to bind the combobox to textbox try the code

this. combTest.DataSource = this.customerDS.Tables["CustomerDB"];
this. combTest.DisplayMember = "Cust_Code";
this. combTest.ValueMember = "Cust_Code";
this.txtBox.DataBindings.Add("Text", this. customerDS, "CustomerDB.Cust_Name");
In same way binding the other text box to other related fields.

thanks for your reply.

But there is problem in using this code it is working only in forward direction means as i am moving forward by selecting items from com box i am losing previous value's of corresponding text box data bind field.

In other word whatever i selected once i can not get value again in textbox .it is removing values from that field which is bind to textbox.
