Adding items to Listbox from Database

Adding items to Listbox from Database

Adding items to Listbox from Database

I'm trying to loop through a select statement and put the results int oa listbox within a grid.

see below. I cannot get the listbox to populate.

Thanks in advance

Select Case e.Row.RowType
Case DataControlRowType.DataRow
myListBox.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua

Dim sql As String = "select Records from Table WHERE week_number = '" & l1.Text & "'"
Dim connection As New SqlConnection(strcn1)

sCommand = New SqlCommand(sql, connection)
Dim dgDS As New DataSet

Dim dgDA As New SqlDataAdapter(sCommand)

dgDA.Fill(dgDS, "Table")

For Each r As DataRow In dgDS.Tables(0).Rows

myListBox.DataSource = dgDS.Tables("Table")

End Select

RE: Adding items to Listbox from Database

Why are you looping through the rows? Just bind to your dataset table.


myListBox.datasource = dgDS.tables(0)
myListBox.DataTextField = "yourcolumnname"
myListBox.DataValueField = "yourcolumnname"
