    Lightbulb comboBox

    hi,
    i m working on a simple project, i want to populate my text boxes and comboBoxes through DataGridView, means when i double click on cell content then the text boxes are populated.my question is that if i have to populate comboBox with the specific value then what i have to do then because comboBox.selectedItem is an object but my class property is a string..
    e.g
    combobox shows 30 days in it and my class is
    Code:
    class account 
    {
         public string day{set;get}
    }
    in the main form:
    Code:
    list<account> mylist=new list<account>();
    public cellDoubleClick(eventsArgs e)
    {
         comboBox.selectedItem=mylist[e.rowIndex].day;
    }
    .......
    but that does not happen because "comboBox.selectedItem" is an object so if i have to do that what i have to do then?
    desperately looking for ur reply.
    thanku

    Is the combobox dropdownlist?

    Each object has the text contained in a property, iterate.
