How do I get the value from this combo box in vb .net...

In asp .net I have it under control however in vb .net its not quite the same. I have a dataadapter that I pop with a ds. bind it to the combobox. Now I'm trying to get the selected value and I'm thinking I have to do a ctype but don't know what the param's are. can someone please help... Here is the code:

myDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, myConnection)

Dim myDataSet As DataSet = New DataSet()

myDataAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "ListingStatus")

Dim myDataView As DataView = myDataSet.Tables("ListingStatus").DefaultView

lstStatus.DataSource = myDataView

lstStatus.DisplayMember = "Descr"

If you are trying to get the selected value of the DropDownList, you can use DropDownList.SelectedItem.Value.

There is no such properties however there is lstStatus.SelectedValue.ToString - and that returns
System.Data.DataRowView.  I think I need to do a Ctype here however I'm not sure of the format so if someone can help me out I would appreciate it.

I figured it out - I was not setting the valuememeber to the id when I created the dataset. It's working now... fyi: it's format is combobox.selectedvalue.tostring.


thanks for the help..

Ah. You're using a ComboBox. For some reason I thought you were using a DropDownList. lstStatus.SelectedValue.ToString() should return the selected value. What happens if you try lstStatus.SelectedText?

Visual Basic.NET or Visual Studio.NET?
OK, this has probably been asked before... I'm a student looking to cut my costs, and I can do this by just purchasing Visual Basic.NET as opposed to the fully-fledged Visual Studio.NET application. Of course, I'll only be able to program in VB, but that's fine with me. I wanted to know if all of the ASP.NET specific options are available, such as using a WYSIWYG editor? I'd also like to know if VB.NET has IntelliSense, or that's a specific option only available to Visual Studio.NET users. Thanks in advance. I'd have to believe that VB.Net has intellisense. What is the price d...

Visual Basic.NET or Visual Studio.NET? #2
I am currently using the Web Matrix to develop ASP.NET applications, but I am keep to upgrade to VS.NET. However, I can't justify spending $1,000 at the moment. I then found the MUCH cheaper "Visual Basic .NET 2003 Standard Edition" which is only $100. I have very little C# knowledge, and use Basic almost all the time. Would this be a good tool to use for web development? Does it support all the code behind stuff that VS users love so much? Thanks!! I use "VB.NET Standard Edition" and I'm happy with it. It has exactly the same features as Visual Studio.NET. Th...
