Dropdownlist - Dropdown Menu Item Color

Aug 10, 2010

I have a DropDownList on an ASP.NET page that gets populated by a SQL database.

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlName" runat="server"></asp:DropDownList>

The population is down in the code behind file:

ddlName.DataSource = SqlDataSource1;
ddlName.DataValueField = (this.ddlName.SelectedValue);
ddlName.DataTextField = "ccName";

I was wondering if it was possible to change the background or text color of an item in the list based on it's value? I just noticed that the example below works when the page first loads but on postback the text color disappears even though that is where the code is. Is there something I am missing?

protected override void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
ddlName.DataSource = SqlDataSource5;
ddlName.DataValueField = (this.ddlName.SelectedValue);
ddlName.DataTextField = "ccName";
foreach (ListItem item in ddlName.Items)
if (item.Value == "Item 1")
item.Attributes.Add("style", "color:red");
if (item.Value == "Item 2")
item.Attributes.Add("style", "color:red");

C# - Dropdown - Get The Value Of The First Item In The List Regardless Of What Item Is Actually Selected

Dec 3, 2010

I have a drop down list control populated with items and some code to take the currently selected item value. The problem is I only get the value of the first item in the list regardless of what item is actually selected. Here is my code to populate the drop down:

protected void displayCreateCategories()
StoreDataContext db = new StoreDataContext();
var a = from c in db.Categories
orderby c.Name
select new{catName= c.Name,
ddlCategory.DataSource = a;
ddlCategory.DataTextField = "catName";
ddlCategory.DataValueField = "catId";

To get the value of the currently selected item which in my case is always of type integer I do label1.text=Convert.toInt32(ddlCategory.SelectedValue); I get the selected value, but it is always for the 1st item in the list. I'm pulling my hair out over this.

MVC :: DropDownList Can Either Select Item OR Save Selected Item Back To Controller?

Jul 7, 2010

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.

I am playing around with MVC 2.0 and have changed a few colors in the Site.css to suit my preferences but can't seem to get normal tab behavior for the menu to work. Most web pages that have tabs have a different color for the current tab, i.e. the current "Forums" tab on this web site is a different color from all the rest. Is there a way to easily hook this up or a hard way?
