C# data bound combobox: display selected item text in separate label.content


I am new to C# but I'm resisting the urge to run screaming back to VB.NET. I'm working with a WPF application using C# code-behind and a lot of binding to a SQL 2005 database backend.

GOAL: I have a comboBox bound to a tbl_Systems entity which provides a list of systems for user selection. When the User selects a system from the comboBox I want to display the selection's text in a separate Label. The big picture is that several comboBox selections will be used to build a query string that will populate a listbox. So, I want to display these selected values in the Label so the user can see the query string they have dictated.

PROBLEM: When I set the Label content property to the comboBox SelectedItem property the entity tbl_System is displayed in the Label not the comboBox selection text.

SUSPICION: From reading similar examples in VB I suspect that the comboBox SelectedItem is actually a "datarowview" or the C# equivalent. But I don't know how to translate this explanation to C#.

The UI XAML comboBox properties are set as such:

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

How to display LineStyles from MS WORD in ComboBox?

I'm developing a WORD application. In this application the user can choose between different linestyles for creating tables. Is it possible to "draw" the linestyles in a combobox to display the styles WYSIWYG like? So far I only can add the names of the linestyles to my combobox: ComboBox1.Items.AddRange([Enum].GetNames(GetType(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdLineStyle))) So I want to have a ComboBox (or a ListBox) showing the linestyles like this: http://img714.imageshack.us/i/unbenanntyi.png/

ComboBox Display list does not update if a datasource is a boxed string

I have a combo box databound to a BindingSource bound to a List<Holder> it has Holder.Name as its display value. I also have a text box bound to Holder.Name but if I change the text in the text box it will not change what is displayed in the combo box. Changing selected items and changing back will show the updated text in the text box but will still have the old value displayed in the combo box. How do I make the item in the combo box update? namespace Sandbox_Form { public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); lstBroken = new List<Holder>(); lstBroken.Add(new Holder("test1")); lstBroken.Add(new Holder("test2")); bsBroken = new BindingSource(lstBroken, null); cmbBroken.DataSource = bsBroken; cmbBroken.DisplayMember = "Name"; txtBroken.DataBindings.Add("Text", bsBroken, "Name"); lstWorks = new List<string>(); lstWorks.Add("test3"); lstWorks.Add("test4"); bsWorks = new BindingSource(lstWorks, null); cmbWorks.DataSource = bsWorks; txtWorks.DataBindings.Add("Text", bsWorks, null); } } public class Holder { public Holder(string name) { Name = name; } public string Name { get; set; } } }

TextBox shows binding source text when window load, so why not with the ComboBox?

How can I get a ComboBox to show the binding source value when my window opens?  I have been searching all day for a solution to this, but cannot find anything.  So I have created a sample project to demonstrate my problem.  Below is a Vehicle class, very simple, two members Category and Make.  Category is an enumeration, Make is a string. namespace ComboExample { public class Vehicle { // Constants and enumerations public enum eCategory { Road, Air, Sea } // Attributes public eCategory Category { get; set; } public String Make { get; set; } // Construction public Vehicle(eCategory Category, String strMake) { this.Category = Category; this.Make = strMake; } } } Here is the C# for the MainWindow.  A new Vehicle object is created as a member.  In the constructor I set a data-provider in the XAML to this Vehicle object.  There is a button event for showing the values of the controls and objects so I can check the binding. namespace ComboExample { // Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml public partial class MainWindow : Window { // Attributes Vehicle m_Car = new Vehicle(Vehicle.eCategory.Road, "BMW"); // Construction public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); // link data-p
