Insert this "---Select---" as an item in the data source collection and set selected index property of combobox to the corresponding index of that object.

Amit, you may be binding your values to the combobox from the database and then you may need to insert "--Select--" at the top. For this you can use the code given below,


comboBox1.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--","0"));


This will do the bit you need.

you can insert data in combobox by

<pre lang="cs">private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
         {
               comboBox1.Items.Add(select);
<pre lang="sql">comboBox1.Items.Add(jaipur);</pre>

         }</pre>
