Values in multiselect dropdown not getting selected when Select All option is selected

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Values in multiselect dropdown not getting selected when Select All option is selected for a SSRS dropdown.

There are multiple dropdowns on the page. We have one dropdown whose output is being used to populate the second dropdown using a stored procedure. When we check the Select All checkbox on the dropdown then ideally upon page refresh all the values should get selected in the dropdown, but in this case the page refreshes back to the blank dropdown, forcing the user to select the values again. The next dropdown too does not get populated. This makes it impossible to run the report for all the cases by using Select All.

We ran the report on differnet database environments. My current location is Mumbai,India, the report worked fine when we ran it on a Bangalore,india database. This issue occurs when we try running it on a Chicago database server.

I am using SSRS 2005, SQL2005.

If anybody has faced such an issue earlier, please help me out here.  Thank you.

Retain DropDown,TextBox's previously selected values after redirected from another page.


 Hi People, How are you all doing?

I have 2 pages one is SearchPage & It has DropDowns, textboxes to specify the search criteria. From the search result the user is redirected to another page when he clicks the hyperlink in the search result  where he fills in the information and again redirected to SearchPage. Now the SearchPage is posted back with no state i just want to retain the search criteria and display when user comes back. Please give me some suggestion how to get this done. I've used ViewState to save the values and check them in Page_Load but they are null.   



 Update: I've come up with this code. But the problem is The values are being retained but the Button_Click event is not being handled properly. When i Check the code even after this "DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString();" DownList1.SelectedValue is EMPTY"" samw with DropDownList2 . please Suggest something


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (IsControlsEmpty())
            if (SessionExist())
                DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString()

selected option items in (multi-) select box on ASP pages are not highlighted if the select box is d


Dear community,

I've an asp application with vbs using input forms containing select objects with the property "multiple" specified. If the select object is disabled, the selected option items aren't highlighted. This behaviour occurs with IE8 and also with IE9. In earlier versions of IE everything worked fine. You can reproduce that also with a simple HTML page like:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<Select style='width:200;height=200' disabled multiple>
 <option selected>option1</option>
 <option selected>option3</option>
 <option selected>option5</option>

<Select style='width:200;height=200' multiple>
 <option selected>option1</option>
 <option selected>option3</option>
 <option selected>option5</option>



Is there a workaround for that?

Thanks in advance!


Dropdown list in ASP.NET - How to get value selected

am sure this must be very simple, but unforunately I can't figure it out.
I have the following code which populates the dropdown lists from the database. This works fine. Now, when the user selects a particular employee name from the list, I want to get the Employee Id of the selected employee. i.e. I need to get the "Eid" value. I can do this if the EId is loaded in the dropdown list, but in this case only the employee name is displayed. Please let me know howI can get the Eid value even though it is not loaded in the dropdown list.
I would really appreciate your help

Treeview: Select all children if Parent is selected etc...



I'm using a Treeview with  ShowCheckBoxes="All" , so basically I have a tree with all CheckBox Nodes. I'm using the TreeView inside an update panel, and populate the Tree code behind dynamically.

My requrements are the following:

1) Select all the children if parent is selected,

2) When parent is selected, and if we de-select a child, set parent unselected

3) Track if new nodes were selected and previously selected nodes were de-selected (becasue I need to update the database according to the selections in the Tree)

For above 1, I do the following:

protected void TreeView1_TreeNodeCheckChanged(object sender, TreeNodeEventArgs e)
        foreach (TreeNode node in TreeView1.Nodes)
            TreeNodeCollection col = node.ChildNodes;
            //select all children when the parent is checked
            if (col != null && node.Checked)

Selected Option from dropdownlist

 I need to figure out a way to modify the style property of a div on my page so that when a certain item ("Not shown - please quote") on a few different dropdownlists are selected,  the div style is set to "display: none". The dropdownlist gets generated dynamically and the amount of dropdownlists varys for each product. I've named the class via the cssclass property in the dropdownlist template usercontrol to be "dropDownClass".Here is my code for this page: <div id="ProductControls"> <div id="ProductOptions"> <div id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_VariantsPanel" class="variantsdisplay"> <table> <tr class="dropdownlist"> <td class="choicelabel"><span id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_modifierTemplate1_InputLabel">Color</span></td> <td class="choicefield"><select name="ctl00$MainContentHolder$VariantsDisplay$modifierTemplate1$ModifierList" onchange="javascript:setTimeout('__doPostBack(\'ctl00$MainContentHolder$VariantsDisplay$modifierTemplate1$ModifierList\',\'\')', 0)" id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_modifierTemplate1_ModifierList" clas

Insert checkboxlist selected values into sql table using createuser wizard



I am using CreateUserWizard control where I collect personal information from the user on the first step (ie. name, address, tel, mobile etc) then on the second step I collect information for membership service (ie. user name, password, email etc). When user clicks Create button, information is sent to two different tables in the same database. Everything works fine but one.

In the first step where I collect personal information, I also collect details about Interest which is a CheckBoxList (CheckBoxList is getting values from Interests table: 1-White, 2-Green, 3-Brown, 4-Maroon, 5-Yellow).

What I want to do is, when client selects his itnerest categories and clicks Create button, to send selected values from CheckBoxList into the third table called Categories. I want values to be registered into the CatCode column in Interests table as comma delimited. For example: if client selected "White", "Green" and "Yellow", appropriate values for those interests (such as 1, 3, 5) to be registered under Categories table CatCode column (like: 1,3,5).

Following is my code:

<asp:CreateUserWizard ID="CreateUserWizard1" runat="server"

Adding Multiple Selected Values to ListBox Dynamically


I have a ListBox control that gets populated from a database like this:

For Each gvr As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
                Dim lb As ListBox = CType(gvr.FindControl("SectionsListBox"), ListBox)
                For Each sect As String In sectionlist


Then the selected values also get populated like this:

For Each gvr As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
                Dim lb As ListBox = CType(gvr.FindControl("SectionsListBox"), ListBox)
                Dim faqid As Integer = gvr.Cells(0).Text
                selectedlist = oCMS.getFAQSections(faqid)
                For Each sect As String In selectedlist
                    lb.SelectedValue += sect


I need to have multiple selections, but I cannot get it to select multiple values with this line "lb.SelectedValue += sect".  The listbox has been set in aspx to allow multiple selections.
