C# - How To Set SelectedValue Of DropDownList Inside UpdatePanel
Apr 1, 2011
I've got a set of cascading dropdowns, but I want the default selectedvalue to be there when when page loads though.Right now, my dropdownlist is defaulting to the first value in the DDL.
(ASP.NET C#) and the code (issue is with the "DDL_Assignment" dropdown).
I am having Gridview ie : inside i have placeholder, So on Gridview_RowDataBound - according the Specific Condition getting from DB then - i am Creating the Dropdownlist dynamically here and assign Datasource. so up to this its ok. My Problem When the user Select any value on the Dropdownlist on Gridview ,
i have one button outside the Gridview so if i click the button i am want to get the dropdownlist selectedValue so on the Button_Click Event
i used foreach row in the Gridview.. but i do no how to get the value. as the Dropdownlist is create dynamically on Gridview_RowDatabound event. but here what i have to write to get the dropdownlist?
I have an UpdatePanel with a GridView. This GridView has a template column that is a DropDownList. The problem is that the SelectedIndexChanged event does not fire for the DropDownList. Here is the code:
I have a dropdownlist in DetailsView to which items are added programmatically during DataBound event. It is working fine in InsertItemTemplate, but in EditItemTemplate i am getting this error "'branchDDL' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items. Parameter name: value".
When I try to set the selected value for each DropDownList using the values in an object containing data loaded from the database using:heating.SelectedValue = myHome.avgHeatingTemp.ToString(); cooling.SelectedValue = myHome.avgCoolingTemp.ToString();
The SelectedValue for both lists is set first to the value in myHome.avgHeatingTemp, then to the value in myHome.avgCoolingTemp. Heres what the values are for each variable after each step of the process of setting the SelectedValues:
Initial State heating.SelectedValue: 60 cooling.SelectedValue: 60 [code]....
I use DetailsView to insert rows in database. Row has fields id, subcategory_id etc. I want to fill dynamically dropdownlist ddl_subcategories, which is used in TemplateField. Selected item value of first dropdownlist ddl_categories is used as parameter for generating collection for ddl_subcategories. I try it with using UpdatePanel, but method DataBind returns error "Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.".
In Visual Studio 2008 ,in my application page 'TEST.aspx' have an 'Ajax TabContainer' inside update panel , and Tab Panel "Product Group Identification" containes textboxes ,DropDownlist and button like 'Save' and 'Cancel' , on clcik of 'save' or 'cancel' buttons only dropdownList Disappears for a second and reappears this is due to Update panel.
I have a UpdatePanel which is having a Datalist inside it , and in datalist i have a country dropdownlist whose autopostback = true , now it is causing postback which i want to trigger , but i am unable to set it as AsyncPostBackTrigger inside update panel because update panel won't find the dropdownlist as it is in datalist.
I binded the dropdown from the table Languages, now it shows all the languages:
ViewData("Languages") = New SelectList(objLang, "SysLanguageID", "LanguageName")
Now when I click the edit then the dropdown should show the selectedvalue based on the languageId that is in stored in the Preferences table under the user.If i give the third parameter as the selectedvalue it is showing the selected value but it is not showing the other languages.
It seems to lost all the Dropdownlist controls on postback ... and I save array dropdownlist in Session but I can't get selectedvalue from dynamic dropdownlist. Dropdownlist only get first selectedvalue
I have a databound dropdownlist on a page, where in the page_load I set the selectedValue (inside a 'not isPostBack').
Although the page displays fine and shows the correct item as selected.. inside the page_load if I try and get the selectedValue() and display it to the screen, I always get null... selectedIndex is -1.
I have a button, which when clicked refers to this ddl's selectedValue, and here it pulls through the the expected result.. so how come I can't see it immediately after setting it, while still in page_load?
However, what I want to do is be able to tie each of the dynamic buttons in UpdatePanel2 (After being dynamically created) and make them an asychnonous triggers to UpdatePanel1. So that when clicking on these dynamic buttons, ONLY UpdatePanel1 is doing a partial postback refresh. UpdatePanel2 stays put and remains the same.
I have a ASP.Net webform with a DropDownList control. This Dropdown gets it's values from a states table in an ObjectDatasource. The Dropdown contains states spelled out.
If I try to set the drop down to: DropDownStates.SelectdValue = "Ohio"
I get an error that the value does not exist in the dropdown even though it does exist. But if I pad the value with the correct number of spaces to the right, it works like so: DropDownStates.SelectdValue = "Ohio " or DropDownStates.SelectdValue = "Michigan "
How can I either define the dropdown without trailing spaces in the value of the dropwdown or set the SelectedValue with adding trailing spaces?
I have a bit of a problem with a DropDownList I am using. When the user changes the SelectedIndex, they get redirected to the same page, but with a query string on the end based on their selected value.
Because I'm not posting, and redirecting instead, the state of the dropdownbox is not saved, so it always defaults to the first one.But, if I save it in say a session, or set the selectedvalue according to the query string in Page_Load, when the user selects another listitem, the selection they have chosen is overridden by the selection delcared in Page_Load.
I am trying to do this as asked earlier. The only difference that I found is additional List item that was included in above code.
I tried to use AppendDataBoundItems=true but it is still not working. I also want to set the its default value to the value that was being displayed in label of itemtemplate i.e. DropDownList's SelectedValue='<%# Eval("DepartmentName") %>' but thie property is not available to me in dropdownlist.
In SQL, you can create a query and use a "IN".. Select * from tOffices where OfficeID in ('1', '2', '3'). Is it possible, in my vb.net code behind to check if a selected value is "in" a list of values like this?
If ArrangementID.SelectedValue in ("6","7","99") then...
