C# - AJAX CascadingDropdown - Setting The Selected Index

May 5, 2010

I have a CascadingDropDown on an ASP.NET page. Now, the prompt text is "Select State". (list of states). However, on a different version of this page (ie querystring), i might want to set the selected index to "California" for example. How can i do this? The web service used by the ajax control (ie GetStates) gets invoked at the same time the jquery document.ready function is triggered (ie asynchronously).

So when i try and set the selected index in jquery, the items are not yet bound. Is there a way to attach a handler to the ajax dropdown so that i can set the selected index once the webservice call has completed, and the items are bound?

AJAX :: Datalist With CascadingDropDown - Setting The Selected Index

Dec 21, 2010

I have looked high and low and have not found what I need or found something that could work but it was old and did not work. I have a datalist (in an update panel) that contains 2 dropdownlist (Categories and Sub Categories) being populated by CascadingDropDown. What I want to do is set the selected index of the First one to the value I get from the Database after populating it in the web service. Then based on that I would like to adjust the 2nd dropdown for the new selected index. Here is the ui code


I saw a post about CascadingDropDownProperties using Atlas but I cannot seem to find anything about the AtlasControlKit anymore (is it part of AjaxControlKit?)

AJAX :: Getting And Setting The Values Of A Cascadingdropdown?

Jan 27, 2011

I'm using a CascadingDropDown in my page and I need to do the following things :

- Getting the list of elements in the dropdown

- Setting a specific value to the dropdown if it exists in the list

I am a total noob in webservices and javascript so I would like to do this in the codebehind but when I try to get the items of my dropdown, the only one returned is the one that is selected on the client side.

Is there a way to get the full list from the codebehind?

Forms Data Controls :: Setting The Selected Index / Value In A DropDownList?

Feb 8, 2011

I have a problem in setting the selected index /value in a drop down list. The list is bound by a Linq query and I want to add an item at the top of the list and set it as the selected item.

THis is the code i am using

ListItem li = new ListItem("Select", "", true);
list.DataSource = (from ap in edc.Approvers
where ! ap.approverEmail.Equals("")
orderby ap.approverEmail
select new {ap.approverEmail}).Distinct();
list.DataTextField = "approverEmail";
list.DataValueField = "approverEmail";
list.Items.FindByText("Select").Selected = true;

The listItem li is the item i want to be first in the list and also selected. Adding this before the databind just loses the item.

Forms Data Controls :: Setting The Selected Index In A Datalist?

Mar 31, 2010

I have a datalist that holds imagebuttons which all link to images stored in a database. When I click on any of the image buttons the datalist enlarges the chosen picture and manages to dothis as the datalist is binded by the uniqueID of the image in the database. So, when I am looking at the enlarged picture, it would be nice to be able to click 'Next' & 'Prev' link buttons to move onto the next or previous picture without having to return to the datalist in between looking at a different photo.

I have managed to set up methods for clicking on 'next' and 'prev' linkbuttons that will successfully browse back and forth between photos in the datalist but the selected index always starts at 0, i.e the first photo in the datalist. So if I'm viewing the 5th image in the list and press 'next', the first image in the list shows up. I thought just by clicking on an image button would automatically set the selected index but obviously this is not the case. I have read various threads and tutorials on the net and a lot of them point to dlIcons.SelectedIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex; I have tried to put this in the itemDataBound method for my datalist but it changes nothing. And if i try to put that line of code in other messages in the class i get error messages (I'm using Visual Web Developer C#).

its part of a final year project due in 3 weeks and by now I should be writing the report! The code I'm using is pretty huge and spread out between classes but I will include what I think might help illustrate how it all works:

<asp:DataList ID="dlIcons" runat="server" DataKeyField="AttachmentID"
OnItemDataBound="dlIcons_ItemDataBound" ItemStyle-BorderWidth="1px"
RepeatColumns="5" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" CssClass="Icons"
<AlternatingItemStyle CssClass="AlternatingRowStyle" />
<ItemStyle CssClass="RowStyle" BorderWidth="1px" />
<HeaderStyle CssClass="HeadeBrStyle" />
<FooterStyle CssClass="FooterStyle" />
<SelectedItemStyle CssClass="SelectedRowStyle" />
<asp:Label ID="lblFilename" runat="server" Font-Size="Small"
Text='<%# Eval("Filename") %>' ></asp:Label>
<br />
<asp:LinkButton runat="server" id="btnDelete" CommandArgument="<%# Bind('AttachmentID') %>"
CommandName="DELETE" Text="Delete" OnClick="btnDelete_Click"
Font-Size="small" CssClass="btnDelete" />
<br />
<asp:ImageButton runat="server" ID="imgBtnFileType" width="120" Height="120"
ImageAlign="right" ImageUrl='<%#"http://localhost:49279/PDFViewer/GetAttachment.ashx?AttachmentID=" &#43; Eval("AttachmentId")&nbsp; %>'
OnClick="imgBtnFileType_Click" BorderWidth="1PX" CssClass="imgBtnFileType"
CommandName="VIEW" CommandArgument="<%# Bind('AttachmentID') %>"/>
<br /><br />
The CS file:
protected void dlIcons_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataListItemEventArgs e)
if ((e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item) || (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem))
DataRowView drv = e.Item.DataItem as DataRowView;
dlIcons.SelectedIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex;
int attachmentID = (int)drv["AttachmentID"];
string fileType = (string)drv["Type"];
ImageButton imgBtnFileType = e.Item.FindControl("imgBtnFileType") as ImageButton;
string fileName = (string)drv["FileName"];
Label lblFilename = e.Item.FindControl("lblFilename") as Label;
lblFilename.Text = fileName.Length > 12 ? fileName.Substring(0, 10) + ".." : fileName;
The next and prev link buttons onclick leads to these two methods:
public int nextPic()
int nextAttach = (int)dlIcons.SelectedValue;
return nextAttach;
public int prevPic()
int prevAttach = (int)dlIcons.SelectedValue;
return prevAttach;

these were void methods but i've been stuck on this for hours and have resorted to fiddling with just about everything.

AJAX :: CascadingDropDown Losing Selected Value On PostBack?

Nov 19, 2010

I am using the AJAX Contol Toolkit and 4 CascadingDropDown extenders with an ODBC connection in a Web Service. The original load of values in each level works great. I then use these values to set the create the SQL for the SelectCommand for a Gridview.

The problem I am having is that when I submit the page to perform the search, the first 2 dropdowns repopulate and set the selected index accordingly, but the 3rd dropdown does not retain its selected value. It does populate with the values, but the selected value does not get set.

The correct values are available for the SelectCommand which returns the correct values.

Should The Selected Index Or Selected Value Be Used To Set A Dropdownlist

Nov 26, 2010

I am binding months to a list 0-13 items default selection is 0 months duration, and years 0-8 items and 0 years is the default selection.As I know there are always going to be 12 months in a year, I could use selectedvalue or selectedindex without any perceived problem. Is there a reason why I should not use either/or of the two properties to select a list item?

AJAX :: Get The Name Of A Dropdownlist With CascadingDropDown?

Jun 17, 2010

I use the CascadingDropDown to fill several DropDownList in my web to manage different application access rights

I use the Ajax CascadingDropDown component for that.

My problem is that, depending on the application, the selections criterias of the values in my database will be different.

I would like to know if there is a way to get or to identify the name or the ID of the dropdownlist which execute the CascadingDropdown class in the .asmx part (in the "public CascadingDropDownNameValue[] GetApplication1(...)" class ) ??

The name of the DropDownList give me the code of the application manage use to select my data in my SQL query

I don't want to write several query for each dropdownlist like :

public CascadingDropDownNameValue[] GetApplication1(...), public CascadingDropDownNameValue[] GetApplication2(...) etc ...

as they will be create automatically at the loading of the page.

AJAX :: Using Cascadingdropdown To Update Detailsview

Nov 9, 2010

I have two sets of cascading drop down lists they are contained in a detailsview <edititemtemplate>. The problem is that when the user clicks update; the original data is wiped out and the user has to redo the selection of all items contained in a cascading dropdown even if the user didn't want to change that particular aspect of a record. If the user doesn't select everything an error is thrown by the stored procedure in regrds to null values not being valid.

Is there a way i can use cascadingdropdown so that the current values are visible when the user clicks update; meaning that they don't have to redo selections for all items involving drop down lists. The current selections would be default values.
