Forms Data Controls :: Detailsview Edit For Cascading Dropdownlist

Mar 2, 2010

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. Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.

Forms Data Controls :: Cascading DropDownList In DetailsView Field?

Feb 9, 2011

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.

Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist In Edit Template, In Detailsview. Getting "SelectedValue Does Not Exist In List?

Jun 7, 2010

I have a standard gridview and detailsview. My detailsview has some fields which are templates, with dropdownlists. The user selects a record in the gridview, then can go down to the detailsview, select Edit, and change some values (using dropdownlists).I am getting the error, "DDL has a selectedvalue which is invalid because it does not exist...." when I click Edit in the detailsview.

I know the problem has something to do with the dropdownlists not being instantiated or bound until I enter Edit mode. Is that right? In what event should I databind my dropdownlists? I've tried several things but could not get it to work. Do I have to loop through all the rows of my details view looking for the dropdownlists, or can I access them directly from some event?

Forms Data Controls :: Cascading DropDownLists In DetailsView?

Sep 10, 2010

Here is the case:

I use Visual Studio 2008 ASP.NET 3.5

I have a DetailsView control with several fields that is in insert mode. Three of them are the source of my problems and headaches.

I have three DropDownLists in template fields.

The first one is OK, bound to it's designated field in table1 in the database. The next two however have to change their bound tables according to the SelectedValue.

So far, I've managed to get it working, BUT when I insert the data I've entered, these two DropDownLists are not entered into the database.

DropDownList3 - the list that controls the other two DDLs

DropDownList4 and DropDownList5 - the list that need to change their items accordingly

DropDownList3 has six different values, so I have 6 tables for each of the other two DDLs

However I have only tried with one to see if it would work, that's why the Sub seems incomplete.

Here is the relevant part of the code:


And the DropDownList3_SelectedIndexChanged sub:


If I leave SelectedValue='<%# Bind("shelves") %>' and SelectedValue='<%# Bind("type") %>' in the <asp:DropDownList> tag of the two DDLs that change values, I get an error when the first one does the postback.

The error is:

Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control. This error, I spent a whole day looking through forums and knowledge bases, but I could find nothing that solves my problem. Maybe the problem is me, but my boss wants this done, despite it is not my area of expertise to write code.

Mar 28, 2010

I am trying to handle the detailsview programmatically but I don't know what I am doing wrong. My details view control isn't going into edit mode. My code for my gridview's select button properly loads the data into the detailsview but once the detailsview renders clicking on "Edit" doesn't switch the detailsview contol into edit mode.

This code draws the information from my database and loads the information into the dataview:


This code is in my dvTeamDetails_ItemCommand sub and the beep works:

Forms Data Controls :: Restoring Gridview State After Going To A DetailsView To Edit?

Dec 15, 2010

I have a Gridview that is filtered by a DropDownList.

A sales rep can select all prospects or filter on the first letter of the company name.

They can also sort the complete list or filtered by sales rep name.

There are several reps in the list

It was requested that once the list is filtered by the first letter of the name

and sorted by the sales rep, that once they select a customer to edit in the DetailslView, and that

edit is completed by closing the detailsview, they return to the same sorted list. they return

to the same filtered list but the sort is back to the default which is the company name.

Here's what is in the code behind file.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
if (Session["selection"] != null)
