setting a value to combo box

hi, if i have a combo box with value member and display member as two different coulmns in the database.For example , i have country name as display member and country Id as value member.When the user selects the country from the drop down , i need to save the country id. Is there any property by which i can get the country Id when i select the country name. similarly while fetching back data , i get the country id from the database and how do i set it to the combo box so that the right country name is displayed ??

Try code like this: //if you have added GridBoundColumns GridStyleInfo style = grid.GridBoundColumns["MyColumnname"].SyleInfo; //if you have not added GridBoundColumns GridStyleInfo style = grid.Binder.InternalColumns["MyColumnname"].SyleInfo; style.DataSource = dt; //dt is the datatable holdingthe related columns style.ValueMember = "ValueMemberColumnName"; style.DisplayMember = "DisplayMemberColumnName"; style.CellType = "ComboBox"; Take a look at the \Essential Suite\\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\DataBound\GDBGcombos. It does everything in the designer so you would have to open up the designer generated code to see what was done in code.
