How to bind generic list with the ComboBoxAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: ComboBoxAdv

You can bind the ComboBoxAdv with Generic List. Refer to the following steps to achieve this requirement.


1)Initialize the Class and the Properties based on your requirement.

2)Populate the List with required details.

3)Proceed to assign as ComboBoxAdv DataSource.


The following code example demonstrates the same.



List<Country> CountryList = new List<Country>();
//Adds the item into the list
CountryList.Add(new Country { Key = "India" });
CountryList.Add(new Country { Key = "US" });
CountryList.Add(new Country { Key = "UK" });
CountryList.Add(new Country { Key = "China" });
//Binds the list to the ComboBoxAdv
comboBoxAdv1.DataSource = CountryList;
comboBoxAdv1.DisplayMember = "Key";
private void comboBoxAdv1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    //Gets the ComboBoxAdv SelectedItem
    Country selectedCountry = comboBoxAdv1.SelectedItem as Country;
//Specifies the List
public class Country
    public string Key {get; set;}



Dim CountryList As New List(Of Country)()
'Adds the item into the list
CountryList.Add(New Country With {.Key = "India"})
CountryList.Add(New Country With {.Key = "US"})
CountryList.Add(New Country With {.Key = "UK"})
CountryList.Add(New Country With {.Key = "China"})
'Binds the list to the ComboBoxAdv
comboBoxAdv1.DataSource = CountryList
comboBoxAdv1.DisplayMember = "Key"
Private Sub comboBoxAdv1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles comboBoxAdv1.SelectedIndexChanged
 'Gets the ComboBoxAdv SelectedItem
 Dim selectedCountry As Country = TryCast(comboBoxAdv1.SelectedItem, Country)
End Sub
'Specifies the List
Public Class Country
   Private privateKey As String
   Public Property Key() As String
     Return privateKey
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As String)
     privateKey = value
    End Set
   End Property
End Class
