AJAX :: Put Watermark Item For Dropdownlist?

I would like to know if there is any way to put a "watermark" item in a dropdownlist, an item like.. "Choose a color" in a dropdownlist of colors.

By now, I add an item to the top of the ddl.. But I don't know if it is a good way or if there is any property or toolkit to do that..

Watermark Shows Up On Preview But Will Not Print Out The Watermark?
I have a page that display like a print pre-view. It shows the watermark in the background. But when I print it, it doesn't include the watermark. I know in IE7 you can change your IE settings to make it print the water mark but in IE8 you can't do that. Is there another way to print my water mark out? Here's that part of the code:

Web Forms :: Dropdownlist Item Will Not Change If Item Preselected In Page Load
I am populating a webpage with information from a database into multiple dropdown lists. However the problem I am getting is happpening on a single dropdownlist example that is posted below.

I am preselecting an index in the dropdownlist in the page_load sub, when I change the value on the dropdownlist and request the webpage to show the value that is selected, it reverts to the index that was preselected in the page_load code!!

Where am I going wrong?

MVC :: DropDownList Can Either Select Item OR Save Selected Item Back To Controller?
I have a project that queries a set of times from a database and uses these entries to populate a dropdownlist.Once the page is loaded, the user can select one of the items in the DropDownList. When the "Save" button is clicked, the Selected item value is returned to the [HttpPost] version of the controller action. This item is then stored into session. If the system returns to the page containing the dropdown, I want the saved Value tobe selected in the DropDownList.What actually happens is that the DropDownList is always set to be the first item in the list.

Database Table: This data has been imported using Link to SQL

AJAX :: Watermark Extender Password Picture Doesn't Show Right Why?
I have a question about watermark extender. I used it to apply to a password textbox and confirm password textbox with password text mode. I found some site recomending using picture so that the word "Password" and "Confirm Password" will be shown in the textbox. For some reason, in the confirm password textbox, the picture doesn't show correctly. It is like some part is omitted. I try to check on my local computer and it was fine. But when I check on my computer at home. I got that weird problem. Why is it like that?

AJAX :: Reorderlist Control Item Template Dropdownlist Control Id Can't Find?
I got a QQ on AJAX Reorderlist Itemtemplate. I am using two reorderlist controls with in a page. Reorderlis1 contains pending records. I just load the pending records. the records can be moved from Reorderlist 1 to Reordrlist 2 with add button. In this table I am not doing reordering .

Reorderlist2 contains Queued records. In this I will do the reordering, the records which are there in Reorderlist 2 , transfer the records into the tasktable. In this table I have the cancel button also. If user don't want to update some records they can moved back those records from Recorder list 2 to Recorderlist 1. I am done with this part.

My 1st QQ:

Now I added Dropdownlist control to the Reorderlist 1 Item tamplate. Item template dropddownlist is my user control.My dropdown list contains the list of years. So I am calling my Usercontrol method with the Itrmtamplate dropdownlist ID. Here I got below error. 'ddlbeginyod1' is my Reorderlist Item template dropdownlist ID Text. Why?

Error:The name 'ddlbeginyod1' does not exist in the current context.

I tried adding the dropdownlist in insertitem template also. There also I got the same issue.

I never worked with Ajax Reorderlist control. I am very confused with this control.

I can add Dropdown list to the Reordrlist Itemtamplate right ? I

f I can add the dropdownlist into the item template I have 2nd QQ?

- If I can load the dropdownlist. For each row I will be having the year dropdownlist right. When user selects first row and moved from the reorderlist1 to reorderlist 2 with add button. he has to select the year of that row.

I need to send year value by each row to task table. Can I do that with reorderlist item template.How can I store the year value.If so, how can I do that? Please any one know the answer ,

I am coying my Reorderlist1 Code below,

AJAX :: Date MaskedEdit With Watermark Doesn't Update On Invalid Date
I'm trying to use the TextBoxWatermarkExtender with MaskedEditExtender/Validator and have found a bug (I think).

In the textbox I enter an invalid date such as 55-55-5555 and exits the textbox. I would then expect the watermark to be shown, but it doesn't. Instead the prompchar is shown (like __-__-____).

If I simply give focus to the textbox and then another control, the watermark is shown.

Is there a workaround such as manually force the TextBoxWatermarkExtender to update.

I'm not the best with javascript, I tried to call focus() and blur() on the textbox in the textbox's onBlur event using window.setTimeout. This works in Firefox, but not IE8, also there has to be a better way I think :-)

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox5" runat="server" MaxLength="1" onBlur=""/>
<asp:ImageButton ID="ImgBntCalc" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/images/Calendar_scheduleHS.png" CausesValidation="False" />

Dropdownlist Not Selecting Item / Value
I cannot figure this out, why isnt the selectedIndex not firing. My dropdownlist should select the item being selected however it goes to the top every time page is loaded. DDL is set to Autopostback and its viewstate is set to true The DDL is binded once. So when SelectedIndex is changed it should call the bind method however it doesnt. I have the exact same coding on another page, which works.. but not on this one

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" Width="125px"
OnSelectedIndexChanged="DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged" ></asp:DropDownList>
public partial class ProductList : System.Web.UI.Page
public string text = "", image = "";
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!this.IsPostBack) //!this or !Page
string sql = "SELECT * FROM ProductsClass";
DataTable dt = access.GreatDs(sql).Tables[0];
for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
DataRow dr = dt.Rows[i];
string name = dr.ItemArray[1].ToString();
this.DropDownList1.Items.Add( new ListItem( name ) );........

Set DropDownList Selected Item In Markup?
I have a DropDownList in a template column of a GridView control. The GridView is bound to a list of objects. Each object has a property of type int which corresponds to a value in one of the DropDownLists ListItems. I could set the selected item programatically by adding a DataBind event to the drop down, but I'm wondering if there's a way to set the selected item by using a code block in the aspx markup.

The problem is, when I try to access the selected index/item/value, it always selected the first name in the list and never the one that the dropdownlist has been changed to. None of the following solves the problem:
