How To Do Country-State DropDownList Dependency in DetailsView Control


I have a DetailsView control in my C#/ASP.NET web application. It contains many fields, but the two I'm interested in are the Country and State fields. They are dropdownlists that display the information from the Country & State tables in the database. However, I want the State list to be filtered based on the selected Country.

I've seen many, many examples of this where the dropdownlists are outside of the detailsview controls. What I need to know is how to get it to work when these are inside of the detailsview control. I have moved the EntityDataSources for each dropdownlist outside of the detailsview control since I know that due to scope they wouldn't be able to see each other otherwise.

So, how do I make it so that when you select a country from the country dropdownlist, it auto-filters the state dropdownlist to only show the states in that country? This end of this video on ASP.NET explains how to do this outside of a DetailsView control, but not inside.


P.S. - I am using the Entity Framework / Entity Data Source for my data sources for everything.

Populating DropDownList from Database

Hi there,I'm really struggling with this tonight (this being exactly what it says on the tin, (or the subject!)).  Code I'm working with right now is:If Not Page.IsPostBack Then Dim Category As String Dim CategoryReader As OdbcDataReader = Database.Read("SELECT * FROM tblBlogCategory") While CategoryReader.Read() Category = CategoryReader("Category").ToString() End While DropDownList1.DataSource = Category DropDownList1.DataBind() End IfI've also tried things likeDropDownList1.DataSource = Database.Read("SELECT * FROM tblBlogCategory") but it just stubbornly refuses to populate the list (i.e. the pagealways loads with a blank drop down list).  An idea I'm playing around with is putting the values of the Category table into an array, but it seems to have a problem with that as well.  Hope someone can advise me and point me in the right direction.  Feel free to be critical of my code too.ThanksDouglas

DropDownList, SelectedValue, From Database


I have a form, using a few DropDownLists.  The DropDownList pulls the list of items from a Table in the database. But, I would like it to select the value from the UserProfile Table, also in the database.  It populates correctly, but it is not selecting the value correctly.  The data from the UserProfile Table will be a string, not an ID column.

Here is the code I am using:



<asp:Label ID="lblSportName" runat="server" Text="Sport:"></asp:Label>
                    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddSportName" runat="server" DataSourceID="edsSports" DataTextField="SportName" DataValueField="SportID" Width="80%" ></asp:DropDownList>
                    <asp:EntityDataSource ID="edsSports" runat="server" 
                        ConnectionString="name=BFEntities" DefaultContainerName="BFEntities" 
                        EnableFlattening="False" EntitySetName="Sports" >


var query = (
                                                from c in context.aspnet_Users.OfType<UserProfile>()
                                                where c.UserId == _userGuid
                                                select c

ASP.NET DropDownList Web Control, Part 1

Anybody with much experience in ASP has written an include file function for populating the contents of a SELECT dropdown list with entries from a database. Some of the more advanced users have even gone so far as to add caching to their function to reduce database hits for these rarely changing menu options. Naturally, these same techniques are going to be used with ASP.NET, but with a new programming object model. ASP.NET provides a web control, the DropDownList, which can be used for the same purposes as our custom built SELECT tag from Classic ASP.

Declaring a DropDownList in ASP .Net

A DropDownList is also commonly known as combo box. It can contain multiple data members, but unlike a normal list box the users can choose only one value from this control. Though the functionality of this DropDownList is much like a Single Row Select List Box, a DropDownList can save a lot of GUI space as it is rendered on a Single line and is expanded only when the user clicks on the Control

Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Based on my previous control "Multiple Column DropDownList for ASP.NET", I received many emails asking for the same control to be used in the DataGrid for web applications. Here we go.. This control can be used as the regular MS DropDownList in the DataGrid and also as a regular dropdownlist. It has all the properties, like DataTextField, DataValueField, DataSource, SelectedIndex etc. The download file contains the samples both in VB.NET and C#. In this sample, I have used the Northwind database of SQL Server.

ASP.NET Multiple Selection DropDownList with AJAX HoverMenuExtender

The final product will work with or without a MasterPage and you can drag and drop more than one instances of the control on to the page.
