how to pass asp:DropDownList value to controller

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

In my ASP MVC app I have an asp: DropDownList control that has a source of a Linq data class.  The values in the list are getting set fine, but when I select one, and then click on an Html.ActionLink, and pass control back to my controller, I'm not sure how to fetch the value that was selected from the DropDownList.


Any suggestion are appreciated.

Get selected date value from DropDownList control and pass it to SQL table

  

Hi,

This must be something not very difficult but I am pretty new in C# and have a problem to resolve.

I have tree dropdownlist controls. One of the control values are dates. When client selects all three drop downs then I am passing values to SQL table. Everything works but one. Date value shows 1900-01-01 instead of selected value in SQL table. I am not passing date value correctly but can't figure out how to do it.

Following is a code:

<td>
                            <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlLocation" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" 
                                DataSourceID="SqlDataSource3" DataTextField="ShowLocation" 
                                DataValueField="ShowLocation">
                                                            </asp:DropDownList>
                            <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource3" runat="server" 
                                ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:myconnection%>" 
                                SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [ShowLocation]"></asp:SqlDataSource>
                        </td>
                        <td>
                            Location</td>
          

jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

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.
