Hi, essentially im trying to assign a value to whatever the user selects from a combobox.
For example, if A is selected then value is set to 1, If b selected then value is 2 etc.

The value would then be used to do a multiplication using input from a seperate textbox

Any help or even a push in the right direction is appreciated thanks!

What I have tried:

string selected = this.cmbfacility.GetItemText(this.cmbfacility.SelectedItem);

I have used this to get the selection but just need to be able to assign it a value

How do you bind data to that combobox?

I added data to it via the properties tab -> Data -> Items then typed in the selections individually

Why to force doors wide open?

Please, check this: Bind ComboBox or ListBox Control to Data - Windows Forms .NET Framework | Microsoft Docs[^]

For further details, please see:
DisplayMember[^] - defines what values are dsiplayed
ValueMember[^] - defines what values are returned ;)
