populating combobox problem

helloisehelloise Posts: 2Member
i have a third party combobox and is bound to the stocklocationBindingSource's location field. however because it is a thirdparty component,devexpress they advised that i populate the combobox manually because by just binding it, it only shows the first row in the table.
now: i have about 100 comboboxes and thought it best to have the code in a seperate class and the call that class and pass the parameters using a constructor...but not sure how to go about it. i have the following:
[code][/code]namespace WinUI.Forms.BackOffice
using WinUI.DataSets;
using WinUI.DataAccessLayers;
using WinUI.HelperClasses;

public partial class frmItemMaintenance : frmButtons
public frmItemMaintenance()

private void frmItemMaintenance_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
// TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'stockLocationData.STOCKLOCATION' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.

// TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'itemData.ITEMMASTER' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.
//comboBoxEditLocation.DataSource = stockLocationData.Tables[0];
//comboBoxEditLocation.DisplayMember = "Location";

GetComboBoxRows getRows = new GetComboBoxRows(stockLocationData, comboBoxEditLocation,"Location",0);

and then my manual code to populate:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Configuration;
using System.IO;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

namespace WinUI.HelperClasses
class GetComboBoxRows
private DataSet dsLocal;
private DevExpress.XtraEditors.ComboBoxEdit comboBoxLocal;
private string table;
int rowLocal;

public GetComboBoxRows(DataSet ds,DevExpress.XtraEditors.ComboBoxEdit name,string tableName,int rowno)
dsLocal = ds;
comboBoxLocal = name;
table = tableName;
rowLocal = rowno;

public void GetRows()
foreach (DataTable dt in dsLocal.Tables)
int i = 0;
foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows) //loop through rows
