DropDown in a ListView

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a drop down menu inside of a ListView. The DropDown is populated inside the ItemCreated event for the ListView, but I need to set the currently selected value.

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddSIFZoneVersion" runat="server" Width="90px" SelectedItem='<%# Eval("vchZoneVersion") %>'>

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddSIFZoneVersion" runat="server" Width="90px" SelectedItem='<%# Eval("vchZoneVersion") %>'>

I have this in the ASPX, but SelectedItem doesn't work. I've only coded these sorts of things in the codebehind pages, but from what I've read,

I *have* to use the Eval. Unfortunately, I can't find any web pages that have examples of set

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

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

WPF Tutorial - Using The ListView, Part 1

Many of the controls in WPF have a downright dizzying array of capabilities and features, due in large part to the composibility of all the components. The ListView control is a great example of this - the possibilities are almost endless. This series of tutorials on the ListView will hopefully make the space of possible options seem not quite as daunting

Binding an array to dropdown list


I have the following string which is a list of urls. How do I get this to work so the url shows for the selection and also is the value?      


allLinks = newAllLinks
        Me.DropDownList1.DataTextField = "Link"
        Me.DropDownList1.DataValueField = "LinkURL"
        Me.DropDownList1.Items.Insert(0, New ListItem(" - Select - ", 0))

Gridview with a dropdown list for editing


Hello. I am working through Scott Mitchell's ASP.Net in 24 hours book. I am finishing the photo album project.

I have a GridView that retrieves a list of uploaded photo rows for the logged-in user.
The GridView is for editing and deleting rows.

The photo Category field in the Gridview is a dropdown list. The text entry field was deleted after converting this field to a Template.

Like the uploaded photos, these Categories are user-specific. They are created in another web page.

Users also have the option to select "none" for the category when they upload an image.

For the GridView:  The Category ID field's ItemTemplate and EditItemTemplate both have a " - None - " choice added to them.

I am getting this error:

'pictureReadOnlyCategories' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items. Parameter name: value


Note: The ID for the ItemTemplate for that dropdown list is the ID listed above in the error: "pictureReadOnlyCategories".


Am I missing some step in this process of changing a GridViews text field to a dropdown that can be used for editing? I went through the book's instructions three times.

Here is my code for the dropdown list and a screenshot of the Design

How to listen to events within a listview



I've got a listview and I've put a button control in one of the columns, I'm trying to figure out how I have listen to the button click within a certain row, but can't see the button in the dropdown for the IDs I can generate events for.

I'd like to get the primary key of the row that's been clicked on and then run a sql statement against it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dropdown Event (Template Field)



I have grid view control that includes a dropdown control in a template field.

I wish to execute some code when the value is changed in the dropdown list.  Can't figure out how to capture this event though?

Any suggestions?

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

Populating Dropdown List using FK


Hi Folks,

2 Questions. I am trying out Data Entities in VWD 2010 Express. I have a parent (Customers) and child (Orders) table. Customers table has FirstName, LastName and Email columns.

Q1. When I view/edit/insert an Order, it shows the customer's first name in dropdown list whereas I want the full name. How can this be done?

Q2. How can I change the default behavior of PK/FK relationship so that customer's Email is displayed instead of Name?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Programmatically Simulating the ListView's ItemCommand Event


I have a User Control that contains a ListView.  In the user control's code is this event handler:

    protected void listView1_ItemCommand(object source, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
      Button_ClickHandler(source, e);

What's occurring is that I'm explicitly firing an event so that the parent web page can monitor this and take appropriate actions.  Thus when the user clicks on a different ListViewItem it triggers the population of associated data elsewhere on the web page.

This all works fine except for one thing: When I first load the control I'm pre-setting the first ListViewItem.  Unfortunately, just setting the ListView's SelectedIndex = 0 doesn't fire the aforementioned event handler.

So I started investigating how to call "listView1_ItemCommand" but couldn't figure out how to instantiate the "e" parameter.

Any ideas of how to resolve this?
