Databinding DropDownList List In ListView?

Sep 24, 2010

Basically when editing an item, I want to bind its ProviderId value to the DropDownList's select value.DropDownList is getting its list of values from other entity entity_List as you can see.


<asp:ListView ID="aList" runat="server" OnDataBound="aList_OnDataBound" DataKeyNames="ListServID" DataSourceID="ListServCon" InsertItemPosition="LastItem" selectedvalue='<%# Bind("ProviderID") %>' >

Web Forms :: DataBinding A Generic List To A Dropdownlist?

Feb 26, 2010

I've got a class that implements IListSource and returns a generic List of ListItem objects (List<ListItem>). in this list one of the ListItems has the Selected attribute set to true.On the web page I have a standard asp:dropdownlist and I set it's datasource to the getList method of my class and databind it.The problem is that the databind seems to loose the selected Item and the first item in the generic list becomes selected.

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.

Databinding - How To Delete An Item In .NET Listview And Persist The Datasource

Apr 27, 2010

I have a collection of objects I bind to a Listview like this:

if (!IsPostBack)
List<Equipment> persons = new List<Equipment>
{new Equipment{ItemName = "Sworn", ItemCount = 7, ItemCost = 255}, [code]....

I want to Add/update/delete from this object collection and submit the final data object collection to the BL when the user saves... Rather than just delete/add/update everytime a row is changed.So my question is how do I maintain state for that datasource? I have tried this (delete example)

protected void lvMain_ItemCommand(object sender, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
switch (e.CommandName)
case "Delete":

But it does nothing. I can't rebind it to the datasrouce because at this point the datasource is null.. I assume the listview keeps its own view state which contains the data?... I guess worse case I can always hold the Object Collection in a Session object.. ..

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.

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")%>'

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 :: 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?

I have created a ListView that has editing enabled, the wizard generated the table with the use of textboxes but i require the use of dropdown lists for some options. I have created the dropdown list

<asp:DropDownList ID="ActionStatusTextBox" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Value="Ongoing">Ongoing</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Open">Open</asp:ListItem>

Web Forms :: DropDownList In ListView ItemTemplate?

Jul 11, 2010

I have various difficulties handling dropdownlist in listview itemtemplate.Hopefully, resolving this example will help me understand how to make things work.I need to do several things upon DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged.(1) Fetch row index of listview then set the row as listview selected, or vice versa, in which dropdownlist was changed.(2) Fetch text of namelabel in that selected listview row.(3) Fetch selected text of dropdownlist in that selected listview row.


At the moment...(1) Label1.Text = ListView1.SelectedIndex always shows '-1' regardless in which row dropdownlist is selected/changed.(2) Label2.Text = NL.Text pops 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object'.(3) Label3.Text = DDL1.SelectedItem.Text pops 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object'.
