ComboBox datasource

Hello, Can I use a datasource other than a dataset for comboboxes? I have a custom entity object that inherits from CollectionBase that I would like to use. Thanks!

If both IList and ITypedList are implemented then you should be able to assign that table as datasource to a combobox. Instead of implementing ITypedList you could also make sure the collection is a strong-typed collection (the indexer needs to return the correct type). That should also work.

Could you please post a sample project demonstrating this? I''m having trouble getting it to work on my end. Thanks again.

At the bottom of this tread, there are code snippets showing how to get a stringly typed ArrayList by implementing ITypeList. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=9194 If this is not enough information to get things working for you collection, can you post a sample of your collection class, and maybe we can put it directly into a sample.
