I'm trying to figure out, why after clicking once again on my combobox, next combobox remember items from previous selection.
I have 7 comboboxes (items for cb's are storen in SQL table). For each I have Sub to fill it with the items, like this:
Sub fillAdditional() Dim var As String = Convert.ToString(cbAccount.SelectedItem) Dim var2 As String = Convert.ToString(cbTower.SelectedItem) Dim var3 As String = Convert.ToString(cbProcess.SelectedItem) strsql = "Select Distinct Additional from tblAdministratorData where AccIc in ( Select AID from tblAccount)" '((TimerAccount like '%" + var + "%') AND (TimerTower like '%" + var2 + "%') and (TimerProcess like '%" + var3 + "%'))" Dim acscmd As New SqlCommand acscmd.CommandText = strsql acscmd.Connection = cn acsdr = acscmd.ExecuteReader While (acsdr.Read()) Me.cbAdditional.Items.Add(acsdr("Additional")) End While acscmd.Dispose() acsdr.Close() End Sub
I'm calling each after Combobox_SelectedIndexChange like:
I was trying to do it, by adding
cbTower.SelectedIndex = cbTower.FindString(cbAccount.SelectedText)
to Combobox_SelectedIndexChange, but no value added...
Could someone tell me, what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you in advance!

This wont help your issue, but do an inner join instead of the in clause. It looks like your double quotes are out of sync

Putting the call to the sub in the selectedindexchanged event would be bad practice for this. What you are essentially doing is adding the result of your query to the combobox and then when the user selects an item, you're adding the results of your query to the combobox. However, there is already data there so it's duplicating. No you could easily clear your combobox right before your While loop starts but that would probably have issues with the selectedindex that the user selects when you clear to repopulate.
I would suggest populating the comboboxes based on the query either during the loading of the form or right after you know how you want to populate them and leave it alone until you have deemed it necessary to re-fill (clear and fill) based on newly added options for the user.

Hi, thanks for your answer.
I'm trying to do that, but I don't know where to put 'clear', because I'm calling me.fill'Combo' in SelectedIndexChanged event on previous Combobox...I cannot upload all data on_load, because my filling subs are using previous selection as a variant so....
Ehh, I have no idea how to solve it...

Okay, I've done this. I had an error in the table
Thank you for your help!
