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.)

AJAX :: Displaying Current And Selected Date From Calendar In The Dropdown List Boxes

Feb 17, 2011

I got one web page which is developed by using Asp.net. and in that page I have got one tab control which developed by using Ajax control toolkit (tab container). In that tab container i have got three tab pannels. In the first tab pannel have got two drop down list boxes and one image control box. wat I was trying to do is that by using calendar extender control in ajax control toolkit i was trying to display a day in the first drop down list box and month and year in second drop down list box. when user click on image control during run time a small calender will pops up and then user will select the propective date according to there choice and when they have finish selecting the date from the calender a day will display on first drop down list box and month and year will display on second drop down list box.

I was keep trying to do that but i was failed. then i took one test box from the toolbox and i was got success in displaying the user selected date in the text box by using ajax calender extender. How to display that date instead of one textbox into two separate drop down list boxes from which a user can select manual date from drop down list as well and from the calendar as well also when the page loads, the two drop down list boxes must show current date ( by default)

Templates - Populate List Items In Dropdown List From Placeholder?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm designing my own custom control that contains a .NET dropdownlist. What I'm wondering is if it is possible to populate my dropdownlist with listitems placed in a placeholder? For example:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlFilter" runat="server" >
<asp:PlaceHolder ID="ListItemPlaceholder" runat="server"/>

This doesn't work because the DropDownList control only allows ListItems as child controls. But, I want to do something similar to this so when the user includes my control on a page, they can do something like this:

<mytag:MyControl Mode="DropDown" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Text="C" Value="c"></asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Text="E" Value="e"></asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Text="B" Value="b"></asp:ListItem>

I know I can do this by dynamically adding the ListItems in the page code behind, but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Forms Data Controls :: Order Of The Items In A DropDown List Inside GridView

Sep 22, 2010

I have a DropDownList inside the EditTemplateItem (if the user clicks edit) in a GridView.The DropDownList receives all available rows from the database. My problem is,if the user clicks Edit in the GridView to edit a row and opens the DropDownList Box the original item is not selected but the first one.That means the items are sorted. Have someone an idea how I can solve this issue that the right item / the original is selected if I change to edit mode of the grid view?

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 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.

We are developing our application on a 64 bit server. We are using a dropdownlist to filter and display departments in a htmltable(hide and show rows) on every selectedindexchanged event.

The issue is it is firing properly for the first time, but it is not doing a post back there after. We have even given autopostback=true. We are using AJAX for hiding and showing the rows of the htmltable.

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?

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".
