ASP.NET Multiple Selection DropDownList with AJAX HoverMenuExtender

Recently, I was looking for a multiple selection dropdownlist control for my new project. After spending some time researching for it, I decided to put together all my finding in one web user control. This web user control consists of an ASP.NET AJAX HoverMenuExtender, JavaScript, StyleSheet and CheckBoxListExCtrl . 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.

Questions about setting dropdownlist selection programatically

I don't understand some things about setting the current selection of dropdownlists from code. I have a dropdown list of people's names where the Value is a Person_ID.  This gets loaded from SQL, and I added an Item which is "Please select..." to the top of the list and gave it a value of 0.  AppendDataBoundItems is true.   If I want to select an item from code can I use dropdownlist.SelectedValue=8 (for example)? Do I also have to set the SelectedItem.Text or does tha above do that for me? Can I instead set the SelectedIndex to some number if I happen to know it?  Will that set the SelectedValue and SelecteItem for me? If I want to set the list back so that nothing is selected (and Please select... shows) should I set SelectedIndex=0?  Is that the same as setting SelectedValue=0 in this case (since "Please select" has a value of 0)? I guess I'm confused on which of these 3 properties I should be using, to select an item (or deselect all items) in the list, using code. Thanks.

DropDownList selection doesn't show


I've got two DropDownLists that are filled using a couple of SqlDataSources, like so:

Filter dropdownlist based on previous selection



In my newform.aspx page in Helpdesk template (when I create a new service request), I have added a dropdownlist (lookup type) that list series of issues that user can select.

I would like to add another dropdownlist that further give more options based on the selection made on the first dropdownlist.

dropdownlist selection changes to first item on postback



I have been having some trouble with dropdown lists reverting back to selecting the initial item in the list after a postback once a selection has been made from the dropdown list. I have read up on this and found out that a "if not ispostback then" is required.

This works fine when I add in all the items in the dropdown list manually like:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then

Cannot populate the textbox with selection from dropdownlist. Thanks

I am not able to get the selection from dropdown into the detailsview template field during update.

                  DataSourceID="AccessDataSource" DataTextField="CompanyName" 
                     DataValueField="CompanyName" AutoPostBack="True"  
                        > </asp:DropDownList>

jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

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.

How to bind GridView and DropDownList controls using DataTable object

Gridview Enable Selection Problem



I have a gridview with Enable selection and Enable Paging equals to TRUE.

I also set the PageSize of my gridview to 4 so that I only displays 4 rows per page.

The problem is when I click the pager in the bottom of my gridview, my gridview is disappearing and no records appear.

Here is code behind of my gridview:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                e.Row.Attributes("style") = "cursor:pointer"

                e.Row.Cells(2).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(3).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(4).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(5).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(6).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
