Forms Data Controls :: How To Use Dropdownlist Selection To Populate Textbox With Database Field
Feb 15, 2011
I would like the user to select an item from a drop down list. Next to the drop down is a textbox or label control. From the ddl selection I would like to populate the textbox or label from a database with a corresponding field from the database the dropdownlist was populated from. On selectindexchange event I can populate the textbox with the Unique id from the value, but I need to input a different field into the textbox. Can I use some sort of variable to assign the Textbox.Text = ?
I have a dynamically generated dropdownlist, that lists e.g. Company Names. I want to be able to select a particular Company and display associated information e.g. Name, Address, City, State... etc. in text boxes adjacent to the list.
I am trying to fire the following code from the dropdownlist "OnSelectedIndexChanged" property, but cannot 1) get the code to fire upon selection, and 2) populate the text boxes...
<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="DDLSalesPerson" DataValueField="keyid" DataTextField="FullName" /> <asp:TextBox runat="server" id="txtSalesPerson" /> My DDL is populated from SQL in the code-behind page.
I would like to alter the query that is run, depending on the selection made by the user in a drop down list on the same page. Would this best be done using a partial page update (AJAX)? Ideally it would be great to have the textbox result change quickly once the drop-down list value has changed, without a full page postback. I would like to change the SQL query to a completely different query if the user selects an option different to the default (page_load value) in the drop-down list. I would then like the newly retrieved result to be displayed in the textbox as before.
I have 2 dropdownlist, one is to dropdown department, and another dropdown staffnames. the secong dropdownlist will based on the selection of department as each department has different staffs i have 2 tables department and staff in my database , in my department table i have departmentid as PK and departmentname, in my staff table i have staffname and departmentid as FK. So my ques is how am i going to populate staffname in the dropdownlist according to the selection of department.
I have a dropdown list that selects a student and a gridview that I would like to populate based on the selected student. When the student is selected the page posts back and the id of the selected student is correctly written to a test label. However the gridview does not get populated with any data. I have run the select query in sql server and it works correctly. Why is gridview not getting databound? TIA - Steve
I am using asp.net 3-tier architecture, language c# for creating a web application. In presentation layer, I want to populate a textbox when I select an option from a drop down list. Under the code sample from .aspx page is given:
how to get result from DDL that can automatically changes the display in the TextBox. Our each item has got more than one size and sometimes the price will be different when you click on a different size. How can I implement this function?
I am in the process of creating a "news system", you can add, edit and delete news. The news items can be entered into the SQL database and you select a category where you want the news item to go into.
What I want is when someone comes to the "Edit" screen, they have a drop down list and what that does is allows you to select a category for you to edit news items from, so rather than at present having the "Edit" page display all the news items, I want people to be able to choose a category that they can edit news items in.
So far my edit page has a datagrid with the following code:
populating the dropdownlist with column name. I have a gridview that has 7 columns . I want to have a textbox search and dropdownfield where user can select column name and type a word in search box and click search so that text for that column name is being search and displayed in grid. how I can fetch just column names from DB and search ?
I am rather new to VS 2005 but begining to make progress. I have a gridview being populated with a hard coded SQL query and it works fine. However, I would like to be able to have a drop down list, select from the drop down list and pass that selection into a SQL query as a parameter. I have the drop list in the code with my two options. I have been searching but I have not been able to figure it out. Here is my code below....it is working but just need to know what do I add/change to pass my selction into the query and then populate the gridview.
I've been trying to find a solution to my problem for about 2 days now, and have found nothing. I am new to .net and not really sure how to accomplish this. I have 4 tables in a database, Vendors, RepairCos, Cons, ConRepairHistory. What I'm trying to do is make a page called SendOutForRepair.aspx that has a insert item template where the first control is a dropdownlist that is attached to the Cons table (got this figured out) and is populated with the Serial Number field. I would like the selection from the dropdownlist to populate the 2nd control (VendorID) that is also from the Cons table....

I would like the selection from the dropdownlist to populate the 2nd control (VendorID) that is also from the Cons table.
example record from Cons Table: Serial number VendorID 508585 1
so when 508585 is selected in the dropdownlist, it would populate VendorID with 1 (this is my issue)once this happens, the user would fill in the other fields (hours, issue, repairco (also a dropdownlist linked to RepairCos table), RA Number, DCI, DPU, DRB, Cost, Record (which is a identity field and primary key for table) and when the insert link is pressed will insert all 11 fields as a new row in the ConsRepairHistory table. so the new record in the ConsRepairHistory table would look like:
Serial Number VendorID Hours Issue RepairCoID RA Number DCI DPU DRB Cost Record 508585 1 2250 alarming 2 20222 11/16/2010 11/17/2010 null null 3
the RA Number, DCI, DPU, DRB, Cost all allow null values.
I have a DetailsView on the page and I have made one of the fields a TemplateField. In the EditItemTemplate and InsertItemTemplate I have a DropdownList that is databound to a table in my Sql Server database. I wanted to add an initial value to the DropdownList namely "- select -" .
I set the AppendDataBoundItems property to true and added the initial value as a ListItem.Markup of the DropdownList
This works fine for new input. The problem is however that the database already has records that were entered through a Windows Application and many of these records has a null value in this field and exceptions are thrown when I tried to open these records and the system tried to set the SelectedValue of the DropdownList.After some more searching I found this help
This now solved the problem of opening a record where the value is null in the database, BUT now the RequiredFieldValidator is not validating anymore to make sure that a databound item is selected for this field and not the initial value "- select -". So basically now it is not checking anymore to see if valid input has been entered for the DropDownList and it accepts "- select -" thus it acts as if the field is not a required field anymore.
In short what is required is that I want to make sure that the user enters a valid selection in the DropDownList, but it must also cater for old records that do not have this field entered yet so that those old records can be opened in the DetailsView .Opening Old records (with null in that field):When these old records are opened in the DetailsView the DropDownlist should show "- select -" when the value in the database is null.
Saving records (old or new records):When saving the record in Insert mode or Update mode the RequiredFieldValidator should show that a valid input is not selected if the DropDownList is still on "- select -".
I am using 3 dropdown list in a gridview and the values for the dropdownlist is dynamic from database.based on first dropdown list selected value the values must fill to second dropdown and based on second dropdownlist selected value then items should load to 3rd dropdown and same for 4th dropdown list. Here if i select age,gender,sex, fist name, last name from the template name Human. The first drop down only populate the fields like Age,gender,Sex and so on., When the second dropdown list populate from the fields corresponding Template name Human, Finance, and so on.
I am trying to Populate a label or a textbox a Primary Key Value from a Data base. My goal is to enter this value into serveral other tables in the same DB. The DB is called Record_Review.mdf and it is local to this machine through asp.net. The table im pulling from is tblDemographics and the column I want to use is CaseID. The bit of code i got so far is:
When someone selects one of the search criteria, I want the other dropdownlist boxes to re-populate with only the information from the current search and take out all other information if that makes sense. This search functionality works except it the dropdownlist boxes stay populated with all information originally loaded from the database. Here is my code:
I have an ASP DropDownList that's populated by a query. It works great. However, once a value is selected, I want to retrieve another field from the database, based upon that value. My SQL statement to populate the DropDownList is: select DisplayName, Price, Deposit from Trips and the DropDownList is bound to DisplayName. I could easily write another database query: select Price from Trips where DisplayName = '" + DisplayName.Text "'" but I'd rather avoid the 2nd DB call, especially since I've already retrieved the Price and Deposit in the original recordset. I tried to bind Price and Deposit to hidden TextBox fields, but that fails. It seems that only one retrieved field can be bound to a control at a time.
Here's the code I'm using: connect.Open() sqlString = "select DisplayName, Price, Deposit from Trips WHERE IsCurrent = TRUE" command = New OleDbCommand(sqlString, connect) myReader = command.ExecuteReader() Trip.DataSource = myReader Trip.DataBind() myReader.Close() connect.Close()
Which populates this <asp:DropDownList ID="Trip" runat="server" DataTextField="DisplayName"> </asp:DropDownList>
I have a problem with binding a DropDownList. Let's assume a database five years old with many historical records. In order to enable just working with active data every datasource has a column hidden which is occasionally set by administrator in order to clean up old records. The selection looks like
1) SELECT Id, Value FROM Table WHERE Hidden = 0
The issue arises when the user opens a form with old data. As some records in DropDownListhave have already been hidden an exception is raised as the component cannot find the data for the list. For this case the following selection is valid
2) SELECT Id, Value FROM Table
it is possible to combine these two selection queries? The display value should always use query 2 while the listed values should use the query 1.
I currently have a gridview that has 1 column with radiobuttons. I then have a update button to update all the selected records. But what i want to do is add a step before the update. I want to add a multi-line textbox for each radiobutton selected to allow them to add notes/comments for each record before the update occurs.
Because the textbox will be large to allow them to enter the comments, i wanted to list them out seperately per record selected. Maybe a gridview is not what i need for the 2nd part, but thats the scenario and looking for suggestions on what / how to do it.
ID column1 column2 column3 radiocolumn 1 1111 2222 3333 Yes / No (selected Yes) 2 2222 3333 4444 Yes / No
I am using Asp.net3.5,c#. I am using two dropdownlists in gridview. (ddlmodule,ddlaccount). I am doing ADDNEW,EDIT for grid. I want to load data in ddlaccount based on selection of ddlmodule in grid and DataTextField,DataValueField of ddlaccount are different to each selection of ddlmodule. Means I have to load data from different tables in ddlaccount of grid based on selection of ddlmodule.
I'm trying to filter data based on the selected value from a drop down list and the according values of a local variable within a gridview_rowdatabound event. For example, if "In Arrears" is selected, the gridview should return all rows where the account balance is less than -100. So far, when I select a value from the dropdown list, it has no effect on the gridview. Here's the code I have:
If (DropDownList1.SelectedIndex = 0) Then e.Row.Visible = True ElseIf ((DropDownList1.SelectedIndex = 1) And (AccountBalance <= -100)) Then e.Row.Visible = False ElseIf ((DropDownList1.SelectedIndex = 2) And (AccountBalance > 100) And (AccountBalance < -100)) Then e.Row.Visible = False End If
