Adding Dropdownlist Option After Databinding

Jan 6, 2010

have a dropdownlist (ddl2) which is dependent on the selected value of another dropdownlist (ddl1).I have set the appendatabounditems to "true" for ddl2 and have added a "Please Select" and a "Select All" options. The Options show in the list when the page first loads. When ddl1 is selected the page refreshes and ddl2 is populated, however the "Please Select" and "Select All" options have disappeared.

Web Forms :: Use Databinding Option In Wizard?

Oct 10, 2010

I have Wizard steps in a a Wizard control. Each step looks like a form with textboxes and dropdowns for users to complete. I don't want to lose the data as user completes each of the wizard step.

1. I'm thinking about saving user input to sql database when user clicks the next button with each wizard step but I wonder if this is wise since it would create many runs and writes to the server? If not the best way then what method should I use? I just don't want user to lose data if browser crash or for any reason.

2. Or should I use the DataBinding option in the Wizard? Would this be a better performance?

3. Another concern I have is that there are on average about 7, 8 HTML-Server CONTROLS (I added id and Runat="server" to the regular html controls) in a wizard step. If I load up all 7 steps and each step has 8 controls then is that a lot of controls? Wouldn't that affect performance easily when there are a few more users access this web app? Maybe I shouldn't use Wizard for this then? I should just have 7 forms and each form would have Next and Prev buttons that takes users to whatever page they want?

Adding ControlParameter To SqlDataSource Prevents Query And Databinding?

Nov 2, 2010

I have a SqlDataSource that calls a stored procedure and it works fine. If I add a <ControlParameter> tag to add an additional argument, then the query never fires and the databinding never occurs.

This works:


When I add the ControlParameter, the databinding no longer occurs:


The ControlParameter refers to a valid object on the page.

Databinding - ObjectDataSource Binding With ASP.NET Gridview Auto Adding Parameters?

Feb 16, 2010

I have a gridview databound to an objectdatasource. Everything worked great until I changed 2 columns from asp:BoundField to asp:TemplateField. These are the UPC column and the Part column. I wanted to show a link button for each of these fields that take the user to another page. Now expects these two fields to be parameters on the update store procedure. Why is this? How do I get it to not assume these columns need to be passed to the store procedure?

Here is the code for the grid view:

Databinding - OnDataBinding Event For EditItemTemplate DropDownList?

Mar 2, 2010

I have a dropdownlist control in an edititemtemplate for a details view defined like this:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Primary Use">
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlPrimaryUseEdit" runat="server" OnDataBinding="DropDownList_DataBinding"


I have a datasource definded as a query to my database that has a column named "PrimaryUse". Sometimes there can be a value in the PrimaryUse column that isn't listed as one of the dropdownlist items and so my application crashes when trying to bind the dropdownlist's selectedvalue to that field. I'm trying to create code in the edititemtemplate's OnDataBinding event that will check if the value being returned from the datasource is a valid value listed as an item in the dropdownlist options. My problem is that I'm not sure how to get the datasources fieldvalue for that column in the behind code. Is this possible? Is so, can some one give me an example or point me in the direction on how to do this?So, in the OnDataBinding event for the edititemtemplate listed above, I would like to do the something like the following (psuedo code):

if datasource.datafieldvalue("PrimaryUse") is in dropdownlist.Items then Valid
else set dropdownlist.Selectedvalue = "Default"

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding A Dropdownlist Within A Gridview?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a gridview in which I have two drop downs. One is populated with values that are static, so I have a regular sub that does that in the code behind. I tried to add code for databinding the other ddl to a datatable. I cannot get this to work. It just comes up empty. My asp code is fine, and the datatable definately has data in it - just nothing gets populated.

One other thing - the code for the static ddl has worked fine, but when I add this other block (either to the same sub as that, or dow the rowdatabound event) the static one doesn't work either.

DataSource Controls :: While Adding LINQ To SQL Class - Empty Use Option

Feb 4, 2010

I am new to LINQ but not >net. I do understand SQLDataSource, etc. I was just told by a coworker not to use a LINQ to SQL Class for my new project (Bank.dbml). I was told to use instead the ADO.Net Entity Data Model (bank.edmx).


When only using ADO.Net Entity Data Model I try to associate a GridView with a new LinqDataSource I get no options. When I add a LINQ to SQL Class I get the option to use it but it is empty. Is this because all my LINQ classes are mapped in the ADO.Net Entity Data Model (bank.edmx)? Can someone tell me (or point me to) what the differences are in these two?

Forms Data Controls :: Updating A DropDownList In The GridView Using Databinding?

Mar 24, 2010

I am trying to create a Gridview in which I can update the Project Officer name in the Gridview from a DropDownList.

The Project Officer DDL comes from a seperate query (SqlProjectOfficerName) as the other information (SqlDataSource1)... as you can see below.

When I select EDIT, the DDL appears and I can select from the list of Project Officers, but when I select UPDATE, the name of the Project Officer doesnot change.

review the code below and assist as appropriate to write the Project Officer's name back to the table.

Web Forms :: How To Load The DropDownList Controls With Items Before The Form Databinding Occurs

Oct 11, 2010

I have a webForm which host a gridview and a formview. The formview is used for showing/editing a record which the user Select from the gridview.

In the formview Edit template I used DropDownList controls with

SelectedValue='<% bind("datafield")%>'

for enabling the user easier interface. A few of the DropDownList controls need to have a list of 100 items and I want to load the items from code behind and not from the aspx.

I tried to update the DDL's from FormView.Load, FormView.ModeChanging, FormView.PreRender but
nothing I am getting an error like this:


How do I load the DropDownList controls with items BEFORE the form databinding occurs.

Forms Data Controls :: Remove Databinding Of DropdownList When Another Dropdown List Changes?

Aug 27, 2010

I have many controls on my form, but in particular, I have 2 dropdownlists. 1 dropdown list has 2 values, and each value controls what the second dropdownlist displays. This is an edititemtemplate and both dropdowns have the selecteditem set via '<%# Bind("fieldname") #>' on page load.

THe problem is, if I change the value of the first dropdown, it errors out because the second dropdwon has a bound value that is no longer acceptable.

Can I cancel the bind of the second control, if the the first one is changed? I would like to cancel the bind, and update the values by using a different datasource depending on the value of the first dropdown or hardcode the new values.

If Dropdown1 has a value of "A" for example Dropdown 2 Shows Values "1", "2", "3"

If Dropdown 1 has a value of "B" , Dropdown2 Shows Values "4", "5", "6".

It binds fine initially, but if I change Dropdown1 from A to B, I want Dropdown2 to show the new values, maybe with a default of "Select an Item" and not error out b/c it's attempts to bind a value of 1, 2, or 3.

Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist - - Loading Based On Another Control And Databinding It?

Dec 23, 2010

Bringing back to life an old post that I dont believe ever got solved: may be an old thread .... but no answer was ever given ... and I too have a radio button list and DDL and am stuck in the EXACT same place. If I check one of the two data bound radio buttons, the DDL should repopulate with a different set of results. This works just fine EXCEPT .... the DDL cannot be databound. If I set SELECTEDVALUE of the control to a bind I get this error:Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.I have followed the advice on this page from various users, all to no avail....surely this can be done, and I assume quite simply. Anyone know the answer?

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding Dropdownlist Added To Form Via Placeholder?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a formview that has several dropdownlists in the EditItemTemplate. Some of the dropdownlists are added using placeholders. I can add and populate their listitems without any problem. But when I update the record, none of the controls can be found--even though when I look at the page source they are there. I first strated out using asp:ControlParameter in my sqldatasource updateparameters, but even referencing the control as myform$mycontrol did nothing. So then I moved to code behind on the sqldatasource.updating event (code is attached). The only controls I cannot seem to bind to the update are those added via the placeholder.


The item at the dim statement is not an item added using a placeholder and does not get a null reference exception (I used that to prove during debbugging that I wasn't losing my mind)--however, all the items being used to get the parameter values are getting null reference exceptions and are added via placeholders. Here is the code I'm using to set up the dropdownlists:


how to get the value of these controls so they can be used in my update?

Forms Data Controls :: Adding A Dropdown List As A Filter Option After Listview Is Displayed

Aug 4, 2010

I have a listview that is displaying records currently based on a dropdown.. works great.. now, within those results returned, i would like to filter down some more.. How can i add a dropdownlist to the page that is populated with data from the listview(only 1 field would be used to create the list ) and if you chose to filter by that drop down, then the listview is revised to display only records with the selected value.


Currently you pick from a drop down.. Report#1, Report#2 or Report#3 Say report#1 returns 100 records.. and the field im going to be filtering on is my "Vendor" field.. so once my listview displays my results, a dropdownlist is populated with all the vendors that were returned with the query.. could just be a few..

Now you are sitting there paging thru all the records.. and realize you really just need to see out of the 100 records, records that belong to Vendor#3, so you pick #3 from the drop downlist and the procedure is called again now filtering on that vendor..
