C# - Cannot Select The ComboBox Item
I have two Comboboxes where the second one is dependent upon the first one.

When the SelectedIndexChanged event of the first Combobox fires then the second Combobox will be enabled.

After the event, the second Combobox is enabled but I cannot select the ComboBox item.


I use Dev express Tools

First Combo I load in Page_Load Event

I use Server Side code:

protected void ASPxComboModule_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

There is no problem in loading, but I'm unable to select 2nd combo item.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Populate A Formview When Select An Item From The Dropdownlist?
I have been trying for a while to populate a formview when I select an item from the dropdownlist. The dropdownlist is outside of the formview. For some reason, when I select a different item it does not change in the formview. Only the first item of the list shows up. I don't know where I'm doing wrong. I tried many things and suggested informatioin and I still could not get it to work. When I do try to switch I get this error message: 

Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

AJAX :: Dynamically Populate A ComboBox Through Client-side Javascript?
I'm using the ComboBox control from the May 2009 release of the ASP.NET Ajax Control Toolkit.

I'd like to try and populate this ComboBox's list of options dynamically from the client-side Javascript (because I'm retrieving the data from the server based on the user's selection in another drop-down box). how to accomplish this?  I tried this:

And it didn't work. The ComboBox just ended up with just one item (the first one) in the list, instead of all of them.

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 to be 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

C# - Select Item In Formview Based On Drop Down Selected Item
I am trying to get a drop down and a form view to work together. I've never used form views before. I also am using the entity framework to do everything. This is also my first time with it.

I want to be able to have a drop down, that is populate from the same data source as the form view. So far that works fine.

I then want to be able to change the drop down item, and it change the form view item that is displayed. I cannot figure out how to make this work.

AJAX :: Implement Live Binding - Purely Imperative Way - Combobox (select Element) Becomes Null
I'm trying to implement live binding, purely imperatively . In my example , I have a master view , which is populated using json array. In the detail view ,I'm just setting the value of a prepopulated combo box . But , the moment the bind statement is executed, the combobox (select element) becomes null. This works perfectly when done declaratively. Below is the code for imperative binding. This function is triggered when an item in the masterview is selected.

function execCommand(sender, args) {
// Create dataview for details section
var detailsView = $create(Sys.UI.DataView, null, null, null, $get("div2"));
$get("div2").className = "sys-template";
// bind the dataview to the selected data from the master
var b = Sys.bind(detailsView, "data", sender, "selectedData");
// after the above line of code is executed, the select element with id "myselect" becomes null.
// bind the value attribute of the combo box to the "Description" property of the binded data
var x = Sys.bind($get("myselect"), "sys:value", detailsView.get_data(), "Description");
//hence when the above line of code is executed , nothing happens :( ,i.e the value of the combo box doesn't get set
// alert($get("myselect"));

AJAX :: Highlighting The Text Of The Selected Item In Ajax Combobox?
Is there a way to programmatically select the entire string of the selected item in the AJAX Combobox?What I'm trying to do is bascially on a State/City selection.

1.  User selects a State from the first combobox.  This triggers the City combobox to be populated.  The item(0) is "Select One:".

2.  I want the entire "Select One:" to be hightlight as if the user had used their mouse and highlighted all the text.

The reason for this that I'd like the user to be able to start typing the city without needing to clear out the "Select One:" manually.

Web Forms :: Allow The User To Choose An Item, But Rather Than Populate Another Drop Down List Control?
I've got a drop down list that I want to populate with items from a SQL Server database, which I did successfully, but I can't figure out how to write an if statement that will clear the drop down list based on a selected index and repopulate it with data from another table. The drop down list is inside an update panel that auto posts back. 

Basically I want to allow the user to choose an item, but rather than populate another drop down list control, i just want to repopulate the current one with new data.I'm guessing that if I want to get data from more than one table the code below isn't going to work for me. Could I get the data from all the tables at once and store each table data in its own variable until I need to use it? (Each table will have under 10 items, in 5 tables.)

Here is the code to get the data from the database:[Code]....

Allow User To Select Row And Populate Textbox With Columns Details
Basically, I have a textbox where a user can enter an ID from a database. To make things easier, the user can popup a GridView using a ModalPopupExtender to display all the tables columns, and they can Select a row, which then closes the modalpopupextender and sets the textbox to the row's ID column.

So far I have this:

protected void GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
string testing = GridView1.SelectedRow.Cells[1].Text.ToString();
((TextBox)dtlsInsert.FindControl("txtNom")).Text = GridView1.SelectedRow.Cells[1].Text.ToString();

The 'testing' string gets populated, but it doesn't seem to populate the txtNom textbox. Also, how do I close the modalpopupextender programatically?

AJAX :: ComboBox Input / When leave The Combobox It Adds To The Combox List?
I'm try to add a combobox to my form which i have done and populate it with the infomation i need but i want to stop the user from being able to edit the first 5 character in the textbox part of the combo box( 1 is this possible 2 am i going about it in the right way).

I have 3 columns fro a db to enter ips ie 123.456.7.89 at the start if each number i want (SE1)(SE2)(SE3) which i can do at the momment . So I get in the combobox list 3 items with (SE1)123.456.7.89 OR just (SE1) depending of i a result is returned from the DB.  However i don't want the user to be able to edit out the (SE?) part of the sting in the textbox. When editing i've tried used the text change event to try and capture the change and make sure the string.length > 5 ,  but the event does not fire also when i leave the combobox it it adds to the combox list.  If I refersh it goes back to how it should be with only the 3 items.

VS 2008 / Populate A Textbox I.e Textcode Using The Passed In Value From Page
I am being redirected from page1 to page2 as follows:

Response.Redirect(Request.ApplicationPath +
"/page2.aspx?Code=" + searchTextBox.Text);

In page2, I would like to populate a textbox i.e. txtCode using the passed in value from page1.

This is what I am doing:

txtCode.text = Request.QueryString["Code"].ToString();


Lets say I am redirected from page1 to page2 and so the txtCode is populated. Then I press a button to populate a grid based on this txtCode value. So far so good.

Now for my second page, while in page2, I change the value of txtCode and press the button. The code still retrieves the value from querystring which is the previous value and I do not want that.

Do you know how to solve this ?

there is a requiredvalidator control on txtCode which says it has to have a value.

And I do not mind using a session if it is easier to solve this problem.

This is what I have in page2.aspx

Select Last Item In Dropdown List
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.
