   myCurrencyManager = dynamic_cast<CurrencyManager^>(textBox1->BindingContext[nullptr]);

   DataRowView^ myDataRowView;
   myDataRowView = dynamic_cast<DataRowView^>(myCurrencyManager->Current);

   Console::WriteLine( myDataRowView[ "ContactName" ] );
}

private void GetCurrentItem() {
    CurrencyManager myCurrencyManager;
    // Get the CurrencyManager of a TextBox control.
    myCurrencyManager = (CurrencyManager)textBox1.BindingContext[0];
    // Get the current item cast as a DataRowView.
    DataRowView myDataRowView;
    myDataRowView = (DataRowView) myCurrencyManager.Current;
    // Print the column named ContactName.
    Console.WriteLine(myDataRowView["ContactName"]);
}
Private Sub GetCurrentItem()
    Dim myCurrencyManager As CurrencyManager
    ' Get the CurrencyManager of a TextBox control.
    myCurrencyManager = CType(textBox1.BindingContext(0), CurrencyManager)
    ' Get the current item cast as a DataRowView.
    Dim myDataRowView As DataRowView
    myDataRowView = CType(myCurrencyManager.Current, DataRowView)
    ' Print the column named ContactName.
    Console.WriteLine(myDataRowView("ContactName"))
End Sub

Remarks

In order to get the current item, you must know its data type in order to cast it correctly. For example, if the data source is a DataView or DataTable, you must cast the current item as a DataRowView object.
