Forms Data Controls :: 2 Dropdown List / "Displaying A Dropdown List Of Categories With A --None -- Option?

Oct 10, 2010

I am stuck at this point "Displaying a dropdown list of Categories with a --None -- Option. I want the gridview control to display 2 dropdown list one in read-only mode and the other in edit mode. When a record is in read-only mode, the dropdownlist's enabled property will be set to false."When it's on a read-only mode, it doesn't display the selected Category. it shows but the "No Category". When i click on edit to edit or change category, it doesn't display the selected category.

The example is given below( I am reading the book Sams Teach yourself ASP.NET 2.0 by Scott Mitchell. page 628)

Forms Data Controls :: Adding A Dropdown List As A Filter Option After Listview Is Displayed

Aug 4, 2010

I have a listview that is displaying records currently based on a dropdown.. works great.. now, within those results returned, i would like to filter down some more.. How can i add a dropdownlist to the page that is populated with data from the listview(only 1 field would be used to create the list ) and if you chose to filter by that drop down, then the listview is revised to display only records with the selected value.


Currently you pick from a drop down.. Report#1, Report#2 or Report#3 Say report#1 returns 100 records.. and the field im going to be filtering on is my "Vendor" field.. so once my listview displays my results, a dropdownlist is populated with all the vendors that were returned with the query.. could just be a few..

Now you are sitting there paging thru all the records.. and realize you really just need to see out of the 100 records, records that belong to Vendor#3, so you pick #3 from the drop downlist and the procedure is called again now filtering on that vendor..

Web Forms :: Can't Select Dropdown List Option If There Is Only One Option Returned

Jun 29, 2010

I have a dynamic dropdown that is populated from sql. The user is supposed to select an option from the dropdown, then click a search button on the form to return some results based on that selection. It works fine if the dropdown gets populated with more than one record. However, if only one record is returned, that one record can't be selected. Whether you select it or just leave it alone since it's the only one, when you click the form button (search button), no results are returned b/c the dropdown selection must not be actually selected.

I've included the relevant code below. First the DDL, then the datasource, and finally the C# code in the if (!Page.IsPostBack)

Web Forms :: Dropdown List To Dropdown List GUID?

Nov 3, 2010

I have 2 drop down lists.I have a very simple dropdown list #1 that diplays a title and holds an id value which is a GUID.I know it is getting this value and sending this value as I tested sending it to a label.I have the dropdown list #1 to autopostback to dropdown list #2 that "Is supposed to get" another title and value based on the GUID value of the first dropdown list. for some reason it wont return anything. I have done 100's of these but never based off a guid value.I assume the value needs to be converted to guid before selecting it in the second dropdown list.How can I do this? or is there something I am missing?

Web Forms :: Clicking The Label Of A Dropdown List - Resets The Selected Value To The First Item In The List?

Feb 17, 2010

Clicking the label of a drop down list, re-sets the selected value to the first item in the list. This has a history of causing data entry problems when users accidently click on the label.

In the below example ddlContactType has a selected value as 'PRIMARY' and whenever i click on the lblContactType Text, the dropdown box Selected value is changing to "Select One" Text.

How to prevent this one. It should be on PRIMARY Only.

<tr> <td ><asp:Label ID="lblContactType" Font-Bold="true" Text="Contract Type: *" ForeColor= "red" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="ddlContactType"></asp:Label> </td> <td > <asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="ddlContactType" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" AppendDataBoundItems="true"
DataTextField="TYPE" DataValueField="ID" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("CONTACT_TYPE_ID") %>'>
<asp:ListItem Text="Select One" Value="0" Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>.......

Forms Data Controls :: Use Dropdown List With Objectdatasource

Aug 13, 2010

I will try to keep the question short:

1. I am new to ASP and I can not get this to work:

2. I am Using a <asp:DropDownList in a <InsertItemTemplate> in a <asp:ListView

3. The dropdownlist during insert does not get polulated (it is empty) while the same construction and same datasource works in the edittemplate: <asp:DropDownList in a <EditTemplate> in a <asp:ListView

4. I noticed that filling the dropdownlist with a <asp:ListItem works; the insert list is populated. (not usable for me) In both cases I use the same datasource from the code behind like this : Edit:

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownStartday" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("startday") %>'
DataSource="<%# GetDataSourceStartDay() %>" DataValueField="daynum" DataTextField="dayname"
Insert: (with or without Selectedvalue: NoJoy)
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownStartday" runat="server"
DataSource="<%# GetDataSourceStartDay() %>" DataValueField="daynum" DataTextField="dayname"

Forms Data Controls :: Add Value In A Dynamically Created Dropdown List?

Jan 11, 2010

I have a database with some data in. Now I'm trying to show that data on my page whit a ListView.

For each object from the database a ListView will generate a dropdownlist.

I also have a DataPager on my page and this is where the problem occurs.

Each object generated from the database has a field that may look like this example.: 1,2,3.

In my code now Im trying to split this string of comma character and add new items to my dropdownlist.

This works as long as I do not have DataPager on. But if I choose to view an x number of pages at the time when the page loads, I have value in the dropdownlists, only on my first page.
