I am trying to convert the selected item from combobox into a string so that I can display it. The "dummyMeasurementDto.ProcessType" is a DTO. I can get the item, just I cannot convert the selected item properly.

"it does not display the value as I expected" - what are you expecting ? and what is it dispalying ?

1 solution

dummyMeasurementDto.ProcessType = cmbProcessType.SelectedItem.Text.ToString();
dummyMeasurementDto.ProcessType = cmbProcessType.Text;

Object selectedItem = comboBox1.SelectedItem;
String str=selectedItem.ToString();

Yes. I have tried both methods. The second answer on the first tab "dummyMeasurementDto.ProcessType = cmbProcessType.Text;" seems to solve the problem. Thank you sir.
