  1. In Topic: How do I prevent selecting text in a TextBox?

    I believe the OP is using a TextBox, not an RTB, which doesn't have a Selectionchanged event.

    Yea, I was just going off the OP's statement


    I've also seen it mentioned that you cannot call Selectionchanged for TextBox, only RichTextBox, but I have not gotten any results using any of these variations.
    seemingly the OP has attempted this in a RichTextBox with undesired results.

    So using richTextBox1.SelectionLength = 0; inside the Selectionchanged event of a RichTextBox allows you to select text?

    Of course it does get a little quirky with the caret when you do that I see. Wants to keep jumping it back to 0 position.

    I guess you could add richTextBox1.Selectionstart = richTextBox1.TextLength; after that line but that's going to take the ability of moving the caret with the mouse if you do.

    Just messing around, I put that in MouseMove and it seems to give the result you're asking for.
  4. In Topic: when i fill data in combobox its display when i open the form

    Posted 31 Jan 2016

    It's been a while but I'm pretty sure you could just add
    <code removed>

    before assigning your datasource. This would make the very first item ---select--- in your combobox which the displaymember would display as the selectedindex is set to 1 which is what you're seeing.

    OK, now that I'm thinking about this, the datasource would wipe out anything in the combobox so you're going to want to create a new datarow and fill the Repair_desc with "---select---" then insert it into your table at position 0

    //create a new row in your datatable
    DataRow dr = ds.Tables["Repair_Type"].NewRow();
    //place your values into the "Repair_desc" column of your table
    dr["Repair_id"] = 0;
    dr["Repair_desc"] = "---select---";
    //insert this newly created row into your datatable at index 0
    // set your displaymember, valuemember and datasource

    Keep in mind, if you have non-nullable fields in your datarow, you will have to insert those values into the datarow (dr) or you will receive an exception.

    I should also throw caution that if you don't check to ensure that this item is NOT selected it could create all sorts of havoc when trying to get at the valuemember so keep that in mind.
