    ComboBox with refresh

    Hi
    I'm making a short application to study wpf and linq to sql. I put a combobox, a text box and a button. When I click on the button, the text I've inserted on the text box has put on the dbo.table. The combobox should show the records of the dbo.table, but I see the new records only when I close and reopen the application.

    the XAML code is this:

    <Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.Window1"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

    Title="Window1" Height="289" Width="209" Loaded="Window_Loaded">
    <Window.Resources>
    <DataTemplate x:Key="SuppliersTemplate">
    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=IDPaese}" />
    <TextBlock Text=" : " />
    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=NomePaese}" />

    </StackPanel>
    </DataTemplate>
    </Window.Resources>
    <StackPanel>
    <ComboBox Height="23" Margin="0,20,0,0" Name="PaesiCombo" VerticalAlignment="Top" IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem="True" ItemsSource="{Binding}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource SuppliersTemplate}" SelectionChanged="PaesiCombo_SelectionChanged" />
    <TextBox Height="23" Name="inserisciValoreTextBox" VerticalAlignment="Top" TextChanged="inserisciValoreTextBox_TextChanged" Margin="20"/>
    <Button Name="button1" Click="button1_Click">Insert</Button>
    </StackPanel>
    </Window>


    and the cs code is:

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using System.Windows.Data;
    using System.Windows.Documents;
    using System.Windows.Input;
    using System.Windows.Media;
    using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
    using System.Windows.Navigation;
    using System.Windows.Shapes;
    using System.Data.Linq;
    using System.Data.Linq.SqlClient;

    namespace WpfApplication1
    {
    /// <summary>
    /// Logica di interazione per Window1.xaml
    /// </summary>
    public partial class Window1 : Window
    {
    private DataClasses1DataContext connection = null;

    public Window1()
    {
    InitializeComponent();
    }

    private void Window_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
    connection = new DataClasses1DataContext();
    this.PaesiCombo.DataContext = connection.Paesi;

    }

    private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {

    Table<Paesi> insNomePaese = connection.Paesi;
    Paesi insPAese= new Paesi();
    insPAese.NomePaese = this.inserisciValoreTextBox.Text;
    insNomePaese.InsertOnSubmit(insPAese);
    connection.SubmitChanges();
    connection.Refresh(RefreshMode.OverwriteCurrentValues,insNomePaese);
    this.PaesiCombo.DataContext = connection.Paesi;
    this.inserisciValoreTextBox.Clear();
    this.button1.IsEnabled = false;
    }

    private void inserisciValoreTextBox_TextChanged(object sender, TextChangedEventArgs e)
    {
    this.button1.IsEnabled = true;
    }

    private void PaesiCombo_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
    {
    MessageBox.Show(((Paesi)this.PaesiCombo.SelectedItem).IDPaese.ToString());
    }
    }
    }

    I'didn't understand how to refresh the combobox in order to show the new records. Someone can help me with this?

    Re: ComboBox with refresh

    I didn't get into your code deeply but I think the concept shuold be changed.
    When you bound the ComboBox to some object you should consider to bound it to object that implement INotifyCollectionChanged (ObservableCollection object for example). Use such object guarantee that when you add or delete an item to the collection, the ComboBox will be refreshed automatic.
    If you still have problems (or you want to see an example) upload your project and I will try to help you

    Resolved Re: ComboBox with refresh

    I download your application and change your code, and now everything work fine.

    I changed the connection in the config file so change it back to your settings.

    Fill free to ask question if something is not clear.
