Here is what I am attempting to do. I have a combo box that lists products that the user chooses. In some cases there will be a new product that is not in the combo box. I want to allow users to enter the new product in a text box and submit the new product which gets added to the data source for the combo box. I imagine there would need to be some way to force a data source and combo box refresh. Is this possible?
This idea may work for you or not, depends on your detailed requirements. However, try this,
"Instead of putting the data source directly on the combo box, use a timer control to load the data into a collection"
How is this done?
For the heck of it I tried something really simple. I did a Patch of the datasource with the value in the text box. Guess what happened? The value was added to the datasource and the combo box was automatically updated. Is it really that easy? Can anyone confirm or is this going to break when I deploy?
