Complex data binding in VB.net

By andy ·
Hi everyone

I have been having quite a number of peculiar problems when binding Windows form objects such as text boxes and combo boxes to data sets/views.

One of the problems was solved by Microsoft tech support, the others I have got round in various ways.

Whilst speaking a Microsoft tech support bod, He casually mentioned in passing that not many programmers use binding, and instead prefer to copy data from the form objects to the dataset manually. This is apparently because many people have problems when using the complex binding methods.

Since then I have spoken to a vb.net consultant who seemed to be saying the same thing. i.e. Simple binding works ok, but complex binding was unreliable.

Can anyone shed any light on this?
Is it true that it is too difficult to use, or more to the point difficult to debug when it doesn?t do what you expect.

Opinions and views on this would be greatly appreciated.
