Web Forms :: Populating A Text Box With Data From DropDown List On Page Load?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a dropdown control that has a list of names in it called PlayerNameDropDownList_Insert and a textBox called PlayerName.

When I select a name from the dropdown it populates the textbox correctly.However, when the page opens the first name is selected in the dropdown but nothing in the textbox. How can I get the textbox to populate with the value of the dropdown at pageload?

Web Forms :: Strange Dropdown List Behavior On Page Load?

Apr 3, 2010

I have a page with 14 dropdown lists. In the first page load (ie. not isPostback) I set the selectedIndex of the dropdownlists individually but I find that they are all set to the value I use for the last dropdownlist set. Here is the code

comboFirstJudge1.SelectedIndex = 0
comboFirstJudge2.SelectedIndex = 0
<so on for all the dropdown lists until the last one>
comboFirstJudge14.SelectedIndex = 4

The result is that all dropdown lists have SelectedIndex = 4. If I run the same code on a postback it works just fine (the first lists have SelectedIndex = 0 and the last one = 4).

Populating A Dropdown List Based On Value Selected In Previous List (mvc3)

Mar 18, 2011

I'm trying to progam a strongly typed "Create" view using MVC 3 and razor. I want the user to be able to select a customer from a dropdown list (I populated this from my database using ViewBag in the controller). When the user has selected a customer I want a separate dropdown list to generate a list of dogs belonging to that customer related by the customerID in the database. The create button on the form will then take both of these values along with the the other fields and save it to the database.

C# - Cant Set Dropdown List Selected Value In Page Load

Jun 3, 2010

I'm trying to set the selected value of a ddl during page load ie. before databind.

This causes "selected value does not exist" errors. So I force a databind, and add a new element if it does not exist in the data source.

However it looks like when the databind is performed later in the page lifecycle that my added element(s) are removed/overwritten.

Am I setting the values in the wrong part of the life cycle?

Populating A DropDown List With Multiple Items?

Apr 30, 2010

I am running into some additional difficulties with dropdown lists, and I'm hoping you can correct my thinking.

I have a table populated with items; ITEM_ID, ITEM_NAME, ITEM_COST.

Here is my code:


With this code I get this error: DataBinding: 'ITEM' does not contain a property with the name '2'.

If I remove the assignment of DataSource to c1, the dropdown generates this error: 'DropDownList3' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.

Parameter name: value

How should I code this so that the user is presented with a list of ITEM_NAMES, and that the ITEM_ID is stored in the value field so I can use it when the selection event is fired? I know I could databind the source directly to the dropdown list, but I am trying to understand the behind the scenes working of a dropdown list object.

C# - Populating Dropdown List With Enum Using Reflection?

Mar 29, 2011

I am populating a page with controls reading properties of a class using reflection. If the property type is 'String' I will add a text-box. If the property type is enum I am adding a dropdownlist. Now I have to populate the dropdown options with enums. How can this be done?

Both the enum definition class(Assignment) and the class(classOne) using which I am populating the page with controls are in the same Namespace(MySolution.Data). While looping through classOne properties when the property name is 'SkillLevel' I will have to go to assignment class get the members of enum SkillLevelEnum and populate the dropdown.

Same needs to be done for other dropdowns also.

My Code:

namespace MySolution.Data
public class classOne : MyAdapter
private string _Model;

Possible To Populate Text Box With A List Of Strings In Page Load?

Apr 4, 2013

I found that I don't need to use jQuery or AjaxToolKit to use a textbox with autocomplete instead using the AutoCompleteType() class.However, base in the documentation it says the autocomplete will just trigger after the button was click at first instance, with that
description looks like what I want to do will not be applicable.Is it possible to populate the textbox with a list of strings in page load? so that if I type in a textbox it will give me a complete list of strings already.

Web Forms :: Populating A Dropdown Box With Contents Based On The Selection Of Another Dropdown Box

Sep 16, 2010

I am a complete newcomer to ASP.NET. However in the few weeks I have been playing with it I have got pretty far and have mastered things like stored procedures, gridviews, formviews and templates.I have a dropdown box which is populated from SQLDataSource1

I have a second dropdown box which is populated from SQLDataSource2, but i need the query feeding this to be dependent on what was selected in the first dropdown box. I assumed it would simply be a case of modifying the select statement on SQLDataSource2 using the SelectedIndexChanged event on the first DropDownList to update the second SQL source, but I cannot work out for the life of me how to do it. Pretty much all of the code I have is ASP.

can i do this purely in ASP rather than using VB behind the scenes or do I need to use VB? I am pretty comfortable with vb.net but one of the other issues I have is referencing an ASP object from VB... so for instance if I had a text box in ASP, how can I read or change the properties of this object from VB?

FYI I am using Visual Studio 2010 and SQL/Server

Web Forms :: Load Time Vs # Items Graph For Dropdown List Boxes?

Jan 20, 2011

I've noticed that page load time increases dramatically as you load up a ddlistbox with items. 10,000 or so results in a pretty much unacceptable wait time for my setup. The dropdown I'm trying to load is Airports - like all of them. What are some alternative UI solutions that give the user the ability to easily select any (literally) airport, but without a ginormous page loading time? (Currently the dd is keyed to the airport's 3 letter code, so it's convenient for the prepared user to just type the 3-letter code and have the right airport selected. The display is then set to code, city, country.)

Web Forms :: How To Assign Text & Value To Dropdown List From Session

Apr 22, 2010

First, a user select a country from a dropdown list. The selected item & its value are store in a seesion. Then the user leaves this page.

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Value="US" Selected="True">USA</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="AF">Afghanistan</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="AL">Albania</asp:ListItem>
Dim arr(1) as string
arr(0) = ddl1.SelectedItem.ToString
arr(1) = ddl1.SelectedValue
Session("arr") = arr

Later on, the user may come back to the page and change the selection of the country. However, I want the dropdown list to remember the previously selected item and value. The item name and its value are now stored in an array. How do you assign it to the dropdown list as pre-selected.

Forms Data Controls :: GridView Page Reset Based On DropDown List Selection?

Jan 3, 2011

i want to see the sales in the grid view based on the month selected from drop down list. Ex: when I select June 2010 from the ddl box, the sales for that month are correctly displayed in the grid view. I go to page 4 to look at some sales there and then switch the month to August 2010 to see sales for that month instead. Here is the problem. When I switch the month, it show August 2010 sales, but stays in page 4 instead of going back/resetting back to page 1 of August 2010 sales.

How do I reset the grid view page back to the first page of August 2010 sales?

I am fairly new to ASP. If I have missed an imp. detail in this post, let me know and I will get that info. out there.
