Loop through combo box items

Jul 8 2008 11:44 AM

Q1) What is the easy way to loop through the collection of items in the combo box?

Q2) What is the easy way to select a combo box item by value?

Some attempts related to Q2:

private object FindCbItemByValue(ComboBox cb, object val)


object oldval = cb.SelectedValue;

cb.SelectedValue = val;

object item = cb.SelectedItem;

cb.SelectedValue = oldval;

return item;



I do not want this since this fires the SelectedIndexChanged event of the combo box. So, I was thinking I had better loop through the collection. I had greatly appreciate if anyone knowledgeable can address this and guide me in the right direction.
