    There is a nice useful snippet when using standard MS combobox to track current selected item in a table based on the current selected item of the combobox. This snippet can be accessed using VS 2008 and upward i dont know about 2005. (InsertSnippet> Data - LinQ/XML/Desinger/ADO.NET blah blah> Designer Features and> ConvertBindingsource.Current to a specific row in a DataTable)

    Using the standard VS shipped combobox it works giving me the option to define it like this:
    Dim row As MyProjectDataSet.tblStaffRow<br>        row = CType(CType(Me.ComboBoxStaff.SelectedItem, DataRowView).Row, MyProjectDataSet.tblStaffRow)
    and then Dim for example put it into a variable like:

    This however doesn't work for telerik q1 2011 winform RadDropDownList. can anyone help me with this?

    Hi michael knight,

    You should cast the SelectedItem.DataBoundItem to DataRow. Consider the following example:

    Dim row As MyProjectDataSet.tblStaffRow<br>        row = CType(CType(Me.ComboBoxStaff.SelectedItem.DataBoundItem, DataRowView).Row, MyProjectDataSet.tblStaffRow)

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards, Peter
