How To Select Default Value In Dropdown List Using JQuery
Feb 12, 2011
I want to select "Algeria" as default selected value in drop down list.I am fetching countrylist from database using handler ( LoadCountryList.ashx ) in JSON data format and binding it to dropdownlist on aspx page using Jquery's $.getJSON precedure given below
I want to have a default value/item of "---Select One---" and then list all of the values from the SQL statement. Currently I am having trouble doing this. I tried to add it to the List Item but it doesn't show on the page.
how i can set the default selected value for a dropdown list. My actual code is:
the GetAvatars() function return a List<MyObject> that contains the avatars informations such as filename and file url. I don't know if i this is correct, anyway i want to display a selectbox that shows the list of the avatars in a folder with a predefinited avatar selected and i would like to show an image near the selectbox with the current selected avatar. How can i do it? I don't find any way to set the default value
I am trying to save a drop down list box selected value but on submit everytime i check it gets default value although i change the selection... i have checked in the html source to make sure if it is getting different values and thats fine.. I have also onselectedindexchange event to change another value... i dont know y after changing the value it goes back to its default value...
When I dont select any option in ddlSchoolRegion and keep the default option, then I am supposed to get the value 0 for a selected option in ddlSchoolRegion as I have set value 0 for the default option ( ddlSchoolRegion.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("Choose One", "0")); )
After executing this statement, SchoolRegion contains 'Choose One' instead of '0'
I wish to pass values of the selected items into a database and however noticed that the selected item is not what is sent into the database you can see in the snap shot below. during run time the following value is recorded. Where did it all go wrong with the dropdown lists selected item? Counting on your intelligence.

I have a datasource that extract 8 fields and one of them is Region that can be US, Europe, Afraica. I have a dropdownlist that get distinct value to get these 3 region from similar datasource built.

I want to add to the dropdown list an Option "ALL" so that when selected, all data a shown. How to do this ? I searched around and get no hints.
I have a fairly simple question. I have a drop down list that is populated by a table in my sql database. I want to be able to go to the last record or item in the table and add one to the selected value, then insert that information in a textbox. Getting the selected value is easy, I just don't know how to automatically get the very last record. Since the drop down list is linked to the database, the number of items in the list changes almost daily.
For my ASP.NET page, in the code behind I load various items/options into a DropDownList but I do not set a default by assigning SelectedIndex. I notice for the postback SelectedIndex is set to 0, even if I never set focus to or changed the value in the DropDownList.
If not otherwise specified in the code behind or markup, will a default value of 0 be used for the SelectedIndex in a postback with a DropDownList? If yes, is this part of the HTML standard for selection lists, or is this just the way it is implemented for ASP.NET?
I have a dropdown list that is populated by a dataset (Data being extracted from DB). Based on the selection made by the user I call OnSelectedIndexChanged, and populated the form with the relevent info. The problem I am having is the first item in the list is selected by default, so if the user selects this option OnSelectedIndexChanged does not fire. To work around this I add a default item to the dropdown list after populating it with the dataset as shown here;
jobStandardActList.Items.Insert(0, jobStandardActList.SelectedIndex = 0; jobStandardActList.SelectedValue = "----Select an Item----");"";
This works fine, however if the user selects an item from the list, and then proceeds to selects the default item "----Select Item----" i receive an error. sys.webforms.pagerequestmanagersevererrorexception: an unknown error occured while processing the request on the server. The status code returned from the server was: 500

I have a dropdownlist on my page that when a user selects an item sets the list for another dropdownlist. My problem is that no matter what the user selects in the 1st dropdown it resets itself to the first item in the list. I have autopostback=true and nableviewstate= true. Is there another setting i'm missing or is it my code?
I have a drop down list with two options Score and status. On selecting score select score i display a MultihandleSliderExtender to select the score range ex: 10 to 20 and on selecting status i display dropdown list . On displaying one option i make the other as not visible.
Now comes the problem in Firefox (works properly in IE) when i select score and then try to change my option to status it does not allow me to do so i.e the mouse over event on the dropdownlist is not working.
I have a DetailsView that binds a User's Profile data into an ItemTemplate upon the Page_Load. When the user chooses Edit Mode, all of the Data is correctly carried over, except for the DropDownLists selected values. If on the ReadOnly page, the user's data shows "Male" for the Sex, then on the edit Mode page, I would like the DropDownList that gets the sexes from the database ("male", "female"), to have automatically selected "Male" in the DropDownList, not the lowest indexed item.

I am developing an MVC application. As part of the functionality I am using jQuery to invoke a server side Action method. This method returns an array of strings. I would like to display the list of strings in a select list using jQuery. e.g. I would like to see the following html:
<select name="CompleteAddress" onchange="Run()" id="CompleteAddress"> <option>22, Random Address</option> <option>24, Random Address</option> <option>26, Random Address</option> </select>
The values "22 Random Address" etc... come from the Action method.
Currently, I am invoking the action method as follows:
