HI Guys,

I need a help I think this might be a dumb question,

I have a window form application and I have a database of tables Course and Students. I am just trying to do some filter in my windows application to be clear I have a combobox and grid. I am able to display all the data but If I want to see only student who is enrolled in pirticular course. Course are displayed in Combobox and details in GridView. as soon as if we select an course in comobox, student details should be refreshed in that pirticular course.

There are no dumb questions, only dumb answers!

you can try this code:

string course = cboCourse.SelectedItem.ToString();
           //You do your Selection of Student from your table Student
           //you Set the Data Source of the GridView
           string connectionstring = "Data Source=Serveur\\INSTANCESQL;Initial Catalog=Student;Integrated Security=True";
           SqlConnection cnx = new SqlConnection(connectionstring);
           string query = "SELECT [Student] FROM [User].[dbo].[Student] WHERE course = @course";
           SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query,cnx);
           SqlParameter p1 = new SqlParameter("@course", SqlDbType.Char, 10);
           p1.Value = course;

           SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
           DataSet ds = new DataSet();

           dgStudents.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];

1. Bind the courses in your course combobox
2. Attach an event handler of combobox selectedindex change to this course combobox
3. In this change event, find the current selected value
4. Based on the current selected value, either fetch data related to it from DB(using a WHERE clause in query) or filter the dataset based on it
5. Bind the data filtered/fetched to grid for display

Well here you go:
If you use a BindingSource[^] to bind your data to the DataGridView, you can then use the Filter[^] property of the BindingSource to filter your data.
