Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a data source for the Mortgage database in the above folder (if you haven't done so already).

Create a form called frmPersonWithDropDown to look like this:

The DataGridView includes a combobox and a button

The DataGridView should contain a combobox linked to the MortgageType table and a clickable command button (see below for what happens when you click on this).

When a user clicks on the Show button, your code should show the person's id and name (just to prove you can!):

Display the value of columns number 0 and 1 for the row you've clicked in

When all this is working to your satisfaction, close down the form.
