DropDownList selection doesn't show

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

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

    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="dsCategories" runat="server" 
    ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:EPiServerDB %>" 
    SelectCommand="img_GetCategories" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
            <asp:Parameter DefaultValue="1" Name="CountryID" Type="Byte" />
    <asp:DropDownList ID="categories" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" 
    DataSourceID="dsCategories" DataTextField="Translation" 
    DataValueField="CategoryID" Width="220px">
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="dsSubcategories" runat="server" 
    ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:EPiServerDB %>" 
    SelectCommand="img_GetSubcategories" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
            <asp:Parameter DefaultValue="1" Name="CountryID" Type="Byte" />
            <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="categories" DefaultValue="" Name

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 .

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.

SSRS Report based on SSAS Cubes doesn't show NULL values correctly

I have a SSRS report which is based on an SSAS Cube. In the Cube the formating of numeric fields that NULL values are properly shown as NULL values. In the Cube Browser and Excel this is shown correctly. However when I design the report already the query against SSAS shows these fields as "0" instead of NULL. Is there a way to fix this or is this a bug ?  

Web Part Page doesn't show current navigation

Hi! I'm having a problem with the navigation of web part page in Sharepoint 2010. For starters I need to say that I am a web designer and learning to brand Sharepoint 2010 wich means I'm not that tech-savvy so bear with me. We have created an intranet publishing site with Sharepoint 2010 and I have designed a custom master page with styles through Visual Studio 2010. The intranet site looks fine with the new design and I got navigation working with fly out menus, semantic subpages etc. The problem is: when I create a normal page the current sub-navigation is shown and it even shows my created web part page and all is fine, but once I go to this web part page, the left/sub-navigation disappears and I have no idea how to bring it back. The web part page uses the same master file as every other page. Everything with the the layout stays the same as my masterpage, except for the menu wich disappear so I thought it might be some property missing on the sub-navigation. Or do I need to edit something in the web part page layout in the gallery?: Master Page Gallery > BlankWebPartPage.aspx If so can I do it from Visual Studio? Here is the code for the left navigation menu: <!-- styles needed to have left nav to the left of the main area --> <div id="s4-leftpanel" class="s4-notdlg"> <!-- The quick launch bar / left navigation

DropdownList Selection to Populate TextBox

I have a dynamically generated dropdownlist, that lists e.g. Company Names. I want to be able to select a particular Company and display associated information e.g. Name, Address, City, State... etc. in text boxes adjacent to the list. I am trying to fire the following code from the dropdownlist "OnSelectedIndexChanged" property, but cannot 1) get the code to fire upon selection, and 2) populate the text boxes... any suggestions are appreciated!! Thanks CODE:     Public Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Facility.SelectedIndexChanged Dim FacilityAddressDetail As String  Dim FacilityAddress2 As String  Dim FacilityCity As String  Dim FacilityState As String  Dim FacilityZip As String Dim   FacilityAddressDetail = FacilityAddress2 = FacilityCity = FacilityState = FacilityZip =       mySettingsSIC = AppSettings   dgiSelectedIndexChange As DataGridItemFor Each dgiSelectedIndexChange In myDataGrid.ItemsCType(dgiSelectedIndexChange.FindControl("FacilityAddressDetail"), TextBox).TextCType(dgiSelectedIndexChange.FindControl("FacilityAddress2"), TextBox).TextCType(dgiSelectedIndexChange.FindControl("FacilityCity"), TextBox).TextCType(dgiSelectedIndexChange.FindControl("FacilityState"), TextBox).TextCType(dgiSelec

Using jQuery .hide() and .show() on panel sets doesn't maintain status through postback. Viewstate

I'm using jQuery against a set of three asp panels.  I set up an 'onChange' function for a dropdown list that dictates which panels to hide and show based on the UI selection.When the page first loads, one of the panels will be shown, the others will be hidden.  Let's say pnlOne is showing because the dropdown has option 1 selected.  This is done on the server with this:pnlOne.Style.Add("display","block");//and all the other panels are set to ".Style.Add("display","none");" based on logic.Then, the user selects a different value in the dropdown.  Let's say they select option number 2.  With javascript and jQuery I do this:$("#<%=pnlOne.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlTwo.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlThree.ClientID %>").hide();switch($("#<%= ddlOptionNumber.ClientID %> option:selected").text()){case "1":$("#<%= pnlOne.ClientID %>").show();break;case "2": etc.,}The issue is when the page posts back.  I'm running client side validation only at this point.  (Even if I add client side in the future I will still run client side as well to avoid security issues.)  When the validation functions detect an issue and the page returns to be displayed, the original panel (pnlOne)

Image doesn't show anything


Hi, in my WPF application, there is a list of PDF documents. There is a FileSystemWatcher looking for new PDF documents appearing in a directory. When a new PDF file appears, a I generate a thumbnail and add a new item to the list. The problem is that I cannot make the image display the thumbnail. I tried two approaches:

1. I use QuickPDFLibrary to extract a page as image and to save it to a file in PNG format. Then I read create a BitmapSource object that is returned from the method. It is set afterwards as the source of the list item's image.

public BitmapSource preview(int pageNumber)
  BitmapDecoder decoder;
  BitmapFrame bitmapSource = null;
  string thumbnailFile = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("TEMP") + "\\" + documentHandle.ToString() + ".png";
  FileStream fileStream = null;

  // save the page as a PNG to the thumbnailFile
  // .....

  // At this point, the image is saved in the file. When I open it, it looks fine. 


WSS 3.0 Doesn't show all the processes

But in my server when i check task manager list of processes, i see only wsstrace process.


Chart Control doesn't show all labels



I'm trying to create a very simple Column chart.

There are 10 items in X axis, but chart shows only 3 of their labels.

For clarification, I'm trying to show Product sales count in chart. There are 10 products. In X axis, chart shows 10 products but, only 3 of them has a label for product name.

It should be a setting for this, bu I couldn't find it.

Thanks in advance

sql profiler doesn't show mdx report parameter values


Hi All,

Is there any way that I can afterwards see the members selected as parametervalues in an SSRS report. 

Maybe I'm missing something, but to me its looks as if SQL Profiler is capturing the mdx dataset queries exactly as specified in the report definition, but SQL Profiler does not show the parameter values selected by the end-user.

For analysis puposes I need to figure out what parameter values have been selected by my end-users on report-execution.

Any suggestions/workaround for this ?

Kind regards,

DropDownList in the FooterTemplate of a DataGrid will not show its items


I am placing a dropdown list in the footer of a DataGrid like this:

<asp:DataGrid id="MyGrid" runat="server">
            <asp:DropDownList ID="myDDL" OnLoad="myDDL_OnLoad" runat="server" />

In my code behind file, in the myDDL_OnLoad event handler, I call to the database, populate a SqlDataReader, and set the DDL's datasource to that datareader. I define what data columns should be used for the DataValueField and DataTextField of the dropdownlist. Then I call the DropDownList's DataBind() method. Everything works without error. But, when the dropdownlist is displayed, it has blank lines in it.

By that, I mean if 8 records are loaded into the dropdownlist, it will expand to a size appropriate for 8 rows but, it will be empty. there is no text in it.

Has anyone seen this type of behavior before? This dropdownlist is in the footer of a dynamically loaded ajax update panel so, it is difficult to see the source code to see what values are in the html element rendered to represent the dropdown.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

Adding New Custom Folder Content Type doesn't show up on the Document Library New Menu


I been trying to add new custom folder content type to the document library programatically in my sandbox environment and it does show up on the document library. But, when I move same code to the almost similar configured SP2010 environment, adding new folder content type to the document library doesn't show up on the document library's new menu.

Here is the code? Since this code works fine in my sandbox environment, is there any other settings I should check on the server environment which would cause hiding content type on new menu of document library.

  class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
      SPSite spSite = new SPSite("http://sp2010vm");
      foreach (SPWeb spWeb in spSite.AllWebs)
        spWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

        //For each site, cycle through lists
        bool isDocLibraryExists = false;
	      foreach(SPList spList in spWeb.Lists)
          if(spList.Title == "Classified Documents")
             isDocLibraryExists = true; 
        if(isDocLibraryExists == true)
          //Create new doc library
          SPList splist = spWeb.Lists["Classified Documents"];

          //Create Content Type
          SPContentType documentContentType = spWeb.AvailableContentTypes["Classified Documents Folder"
