Combo Text Disappears www.vbforums.com

Hi All,Here's a strange one. I have 2 combo boxes of the same type on screen. I also have 2 grids and the grids are bound to different ADO recordsets. When I select an item from one of the combos the recordpointer on the associated grid moves to the item where a column has the associated value and all is fine. I do exactly the same with the other combo and grid, but after the recordpointer has moved on the grid, the value in the combo disappears. When stepping the code at the 'End Sub' line of the combo's click event the correct values are still in the combos text property. As soon as I F8/F5 off, the text disappears. I've removed and replaced the control, put debug statements into every event incase somthing else is triggering and nothing is.

Combo Box In DataGridView? www.xtremevbtalk.com

This is no good for my purposes, the user needs to be able to see what they have typed. Is this how it works when in a grid? I have tried playing with a lot of the column options but nothing makes it work correctly.

2 Data Combo Box Questions www.vbforums.com

I have a couple data combo box questions.1) I am having a difficult time getting a data combo box to work. I add the adodc control & the data combo box, I link everything properly. However, the combo box only shows one record at a time. I have to click the adodc control to get to the next record. I just want the combo box to be filled with data from the db (without coding).2) which brings me to my next question. For those of you who have this working, is it faster than coding the data retrieval process in the form load event? That is to say, if I can get the combo box to fill from a data control perspective will it fill faster than a regular combo box and a recordset/loop/additem code block?

Auto Populate 2nd Combobox Based On 1st Combobox Data www.mrexcel.com

I need to populate two combo boxes from excel sheet, the data will be like below: Column A Column B A 1 A 2 A 3 A 4 A 5 B 100 B 101 B 102 So from the above data, one combo box should hold unique values A & B. On selecting a value from the 1st combo box A or B, respective values should be populated in 2nd combo box. So the data should be like below: If A is selected in the 1st combo box, then 2nd combo box should only show the values 1,2,3,4 & 5. If B is selected in the 1st combo box, then 2nd combo box should only show the values 100,101 & 102. Friends I need it in a macro and one important point is, this is dynamic and it is not static and the data can be more.

Filter DataGridView Results From ComboBox And DateTime Picker Values social.msdn.microsoft.com

Filtering A Combo Box Lookup On A Datagrid? www.vbforums.com

I need some advice I have a bound datagrid and a bound combobox lookup on a form. What i want to do is filter the combo box so it only shows the items left that are not in the datagrid already. I have managed to achieve this already.But when the program runs, and there are items displayed in the data grid the combo box items are now filtered.The program crashes as it can't display the combobox item as i have filtered them out. The program runs fine if the datagrid is empty (IE combobox items not filtered). But as soon as there is a record in the datagrid when i save the database and refresh the combo box the program falls over is the items it is looking for is not in the combo box items list. What would a work around be. I have thought of a separate combo box that is hidden and use the datagrid combobox events to show it in the correct position.Just to be tedious the displayed item is not the stored item value

MSHFlexGrid Celltop Property Problem www.vbcity.com

Hi.I'm writing a VB6 application that involves an in-cell editing of a MSHFlexgrid control using comboboxes and text boxes.In order to set the position of the combo boxes, I use the following code:Code:cmbGlasses(I).Move fgGlassSub.Left + fgGlassSub.CellLeft, _                              fgGlassSub.Top + fgGlassSub.CellTop, _                              fgGlassSub.CellWidth - 8It should be working, but instead I get a strange behaviour:The grid is hidden and a I click on a button to see it. When it opens for the first time, the moment I click on a row, it opens the combo box exactly at the next row! If there is only one row, it will show the combo box on the an "empty" background of the MSHFlexgrid.But the most strange this is that the moment I have enough rows in the grid to show a scroll it begins to work fine, even if I delete rows or reloads the grid with not enough rows to show a scroll.Any ideas for this strange behaviour?TIA

Adding Records To Database Using A Data Combo Box www.xtremevbtalk.com

I've created a VB application that connects to a MS Access 97 database using ADO. This application has the basic features (add, delete, update, view records).When adding a record, I have used a form with data combo boxes that are each connected to an ADO. There are about 40 fields on this form.The user fills out the add form with the appropriate data from the combo boxes and clicks the add command button which will add the record to the Access database.In order to populate the combo boxes, I have created ADO for each combo box so that I can populate it with only the data that I need. For example, for the fiscal year combo box, I have created a ADO that gets the fiscal year from the Fiscal Year table. Is there a way that I can populate the combo boxes with the appropriate data without creating an ADO for each box.Any suggestion would be welcome.
