VB.NET Combobox as easy as the ASP.NET DropDownList??
What I want to see is how to load a VB.NET combobox with the same data (Value, Description) as you load into an ASP.NET DropDownList. There's no reason why working with the VB.NET ComboBox in DropDownList mode should be so much more work. Feed it a datareader, tell it the name of the text and value columns, then stand back and let it work. Instead, we toy with this crappy VB6-like excuse for a combobox.
