Forms Data Controls :: DropDownList In DetailsView Without SQLDataSource?
Nov 2, 2010
I am trying to use a DropDownList in a DetailsView for the ItemTemplate, InsertItemTemplate, and EditItemTemplate. I must bind this DropDownList to a SQL-Server support table using a function that returns a DataTable. I am not allowed to use a SQLDataSource in my backwards IT department. So, not only do I need to load the DropDownList, I also need to make the SelectedValue equal to the current record that I am viewing, editing.
I would like to move all of this to codebehind so it's easier to work with programmatically. For instance the PracticeId is a selection from a dropdownlist that is populated from another table... i need to determine what the current selection is first so i can display the record / bind properly.
I need to pass a user selected value from a databound DropDownList into a GridView SQLDataSource select statement so the correct records will be selected. I have found lots of documentation on DropDownLists and sqldatasources but nothing that connect the two.
I am facing a small issue in using a DropDownList that has only two values (AND and OR) which i want to use to configure a SQL Query in a SqlDataSource. How can i use this thing by passing the value in a SqlDataSource Select Query in such a way to Bind the Result to a GridView. I want something like this -
SELECT [somefields] FROM instinvoice WHERE Namen = @Namen @Option InvoiceNo = @invoiceno where @Namen is from a DropDownList and InvoiceNo is from a TextBox
I m having a problem in specifying this @Option parameter from a DropDownList which contains only two list items - AND and OR. On the Basis of the Selected Value from this DropDownList i want to execute query like
SELECT [somefields] FROM instinvoice WHERE Namen = @Namen AND InvoiceNo = @invoiceno
SELECT [somefields] FROM instinvoice WHERE Namen = @Namen OR InvoiceNo = @invoiceno
Using the Query with @Option gives me a Parsing Error. Why is that so. How can I implement this scenario.
I have a dropdownlist that's being populated from a SQL datasource. I would also like to have a tooltip for each dropdownlist list item on mouse over. I found the example below which adds a title attribute for each list item using the listitem text as a tooltip but I want to make the title/tooltip value another field in the database. In other words,
How do i use drop down list in the details view? While inserting user should be able to select the "Car Name" from the drop downlist and the "Car Id" should be get inerted into database. Also while editing the appropriate Car Name should be selected in the drop down list.
How the HTML code and the Binding should look for this details view ?
I figure that this should be relatively straightforward, but I still can't get it to work. I have a gridview and a detailsview to set up shifts for students and teachers. I would like to be able to insert new shifts using a detailsview. I will limit the students, teachers and location to items that are in a dropdownlist. The problem is that when I handle the iteminserting event. the e.values collection doesn't contain all of the fields I want to populate. How do I add the new fields to the list. This is my codebehind:
Sub On_Inserting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DetailsViewInsertEventArgs)
I have a dropdownlist in the edititemtemplate of a detailsview. The dropdownlist is bound with an objectdatasource. The detailsview is bound to a seperate objectdatasource which connects it to the insert method. When the page loads the dropdownlist is bound properly. However, when I make a selection and select insert I get the following error: Could not find a property named 'DeptID' on the type specified by the DataObjectTypeName property in ObjectDataSource 'objCurrentProduct'. I've tried to remove the SelectedValue='<%# Bind("DeptID") %> attribute. I can then insert without an exception being thrown but the selected value of the dropdown is not recognized. Here is the code:
I have a template field in a Details View which is a dropdown selection of values.While I can get the value of the textfields in the DetailsView by using: DetailsView1.Rows(i).Cells(1).Text.ToStringI don't know how do extract a value from a dropdownlist2 contained in the DetailsView.
I've got a master table and a child table. The master table has a nullable column called ReferenceID and in some cases it should be NULL, but when it's null in a record, I get an error while going to Edit mode of DetailsView.
In Read Only mode all everything is OK, but when I click on Edit and Postback happens, I get the following error: Server Error in '/Sample' Application. 'DropDownList_Reference ' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.Parameter name: value It means that in MasterTable, the ReferenceID shouldn't be NULL, but it should be in some cases.
I have created two dropdown lists. The 2nd DDL depends for values on the 1st DDL. I have written code on the SelectedIndexChanged event of 1st DDL to change values of 2nd DDL. also i have used detailsview. In the template field i have used 2 DDL mentioned above. they are having SelectedValue='<%# Bind("") %>' property. Everything works fine but when i tried to edit record in detailsview & select value from 1st DDL then it gives me following error.
Server Error in '/' Application. Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

I have an ASP.NET/C# web project that uses an Entity Data Model and Entity Framework to interact with my database. I also have a DetailsView control that will serve as the control used to insert a new record. The user will need to be able to select from multiple, cascading dropdownlist controls to determine what parent record this new record will belong to. Here is an example.Say we have an online ordering system with the following hierarchy.
Customers -> Orders -> OrderParts -> Parts
We're going to add a new part to an order, under a customer. Ultimately the orderparts table won't have a reference to a customer, just an order. The order will have the reference to the customer. In the DetailsView for the new orderparts record we will need two cascading dropdownlist controls. One for customer and one for order, since we won't want to view some crazy amount of orders all in one dropdownlist.
However, the customer dropdownlist should not be bound to the detailsview control since there is no field for it. I also don't want to use the AJAX control since I don't want to create a separate web service to provide all of this information to the dropdownlist controls.
Two ddl inside gridview. on selecting first ddl1 fill next ddl2 by passing selected value as parameter by executing the sqldatasource select command in codebehind.code:
GridViewRow gr = (GridViewRow)((DataControlFieldCell)((DropDownList)sender).Parent).Parent; //find the control in that DropDownList d1 = (DropDownList)gr.FindControl(ddl1); DropDownList d2 = (DropDownList)gr.FindControl(ddl2); SqliaDataSource.SelectParameters.Add("@name", d1.SelectedItem.Text.ToString()); dataView dv=(dataview) SqliaDataSource.select(DataSourceSelectArguments .Empty); Error: There is no source code available for the current location. and Returns null value
I have a series of dropdownlists on webform in ASP 4.0. The first drop down is filled upon load, and then when a user selects a value from that list, it populates the second dropdown. To accomplish this, I have a SQLdatasource with a parametersource of the first drop-down list control. This works great, except when a user changes their selection from the first drop down. It performs the query, but then adds the list of items to the ones that were already there from the previous selection, instead of replacing it with the new data. Here is the code:
Do I need to do something on selectedindexchanged to somehow "clear out" the previous datasource? I can't find anything about this online, although one person seemed to suggest it was related to using a master page. (which I am using).
i am using visual studio 2008 vb. i have a dropdownlist in my detailsview populated with product id. when i select an id, the product name will appear on a label. however, when i change the product id in the dropdownlist, an error occur "Conversion from string "ProductName" to type 'Integer' is not valid." Here's the code file.
Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Dim lbl As Label = DetailsViewOrderDetails.FindControl("Label4") Dim ddl As DropDownList = DetailsViewOrderDetails.FindControl("DropDownList1") lbl.Text = ddl.SelectedValue("ProductName").ToString() End Sub
I've been struggling with trying to figure out how to do this for about 2 weeks now. I have a DetailsView with several template fields in it. The first field (Unit_Code) is a dropdownlist item where the user would select a Unit based off the Unit_Code's Unit Name. Further down I have a field named (System), system needs to get it's value from the selectedvalue or selectedindex that the user selected in the (Unit_Code) dropdownlist. I have another dropdownlist item (Component) that will need to get the selected value from System to sort on, so once I have the first Unit_Code to System figured out I should be able to figure out the System to Component part seeing as it will basically be doing the same thing.
I am using Visual Studio 10/ASP4 but I am sure this problem is me. I created a program and got it all working. GridView and DetailsView, edit, insert and delete all works. :-)... I have spent 4 solid days attempting to have a simple DropDownList with three items on it EDIT a record. Lots of GOOGLeing for suggestions. It just will not work. The insert dropdown works fine(thats how I created the record). I wrote a new simplified program with just the detailsview and the edititem dropdownlist. Still can't get it to work. The detailsview data has a record and the "mode" field (char(20)) has three letters "FTP" in it. The letters display on the Detailsview. I can edit fine but when I add the following drop down list the page aborted with a
"'DropmodeEdit' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items. Parameter name: value"
Yet there is only one record and it HAS "FTP" in it! The list has FTP in it? I just don't get it, why?
I added an ondatabinding routine and breakpointed it in the try/catch and found the selectedindex pointed to the correct entry and the items list had the correct entry with no spurious data or spaces. The data being passed displayed good in the detailsview, Am I correct in assuming that is bound to the dropdownlist automatically? or is there some majic that I did not get from Rob Burke?
