Order of the items in a DropDownList inside GridView

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a DropDownList inside the EditTemplateItem (if the user clicks edit) in a GridView. The DropDownList receives all available rows from the database.

My problem is, if the user clicks Edit in the GridView to edit a row and opens the DropDownList Box the original item is not selected but the first one. That means the items are sorted.

Have someone an idea how I can solve this issue that the right item / the original is selected if I change to edit mode of the grid view?

The only idear that I have is to write some lines in the code behind for the updating event and selected the suitable index manually but I think there must be an easier way.

dropdownlist bound to sqldatasource adds items instead of replacing on change



I have a series of dropdownlists on webform in ASP 4.0. The first drop down is filled upon load, and then when a user selects a value from that list, it populates the second dropdown. To accomplish this, I have a SQLdatasource with a parametersource of the first drop-down list control. This works great, except when a user changes their selection from the first drop down. It performs the query, but then adds the list of items to the ones that were already there from the previous selection, instead of replacing it with the new data. Here is the code:

 <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMajor" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="majortext" 
      DataValueField="majorkey" AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
         <asp:ListItem Value="0">Select Major</asp:ListItem>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlReq" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataTextField="req" DataValueField="admreqkey" 
            AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
                <asp:ListItem Value="0">Sel

Accessing a row's dropdownlist values AFTER the gridview control is in Edit mode

Hello, I have a gridview control. When it goes into Edit mode, there are 3 dropdownlists in one cell that are populated by separate stored procedures during the RowDataBound event. The 1st dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 2nd dropdownlist is populated with. The 2nd dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 3rd dropdownlist is populated with. Everything works fine when the row is first put into Edit mode. While I'm in Edit mode and I change the selection in the 1st dropdownlist, how do I access the control so I can feed this new parameter to the 2nd dropdownlist? I have the first 2 dropdownlists set for AutoPostBack so that the Page_Load event is fired when the user changes a value. I know how to get access to these controls via the FindControl method when the row is being databound but how do I find the control during the Page_Load event? Thanks for any help!!!   Penny
