Hi Jonathan,   
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.   
We suspect your requirement is to select the item programmatically in the MultiSelectionComboBox. If so your requirement can be achieved by using the function named “AddVisualItem”. We have prepared a sample in which you can select an item through button click and it can be downloaded from the below location.   
Sample: MultiSelectionComboBox

I think the only way to select an element is:
You must filter the datatable according to its definition, in my case I have a column called "pk".
Then select all the elements (filtered)
And finally put back the original items.

Dim tmp As DataTable = MultiSelectionComboBox1.DataSource()

MultiSelectionComboBox1.DataSource = CType(Me.DataSource, DataTable).Select("pk=2").CopyToDataTable


MultiSelectionComboBox1.DataSource = tmp

Hi Felix, 
Thank you for your update.  
We can also select item in MultiSelectionComboBox using DataTable as you have mentioned in your update. This can also be done by SelectedItem and AddVisualtem property available in the MultiSelectionComboBox as given in our previous update.
