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

dropdown lists and selected value problem ?




I have dropdown lists within formview edit template


DD1 is binded to a Data table called Country Version  p/k = CountryId of type "Int"





DD2 is binded to Size Table p/k = SizeId of type Int and Foreign key of CountryId


The select Method of DD2 is "GetDatabyCountryID" which accepts selected value of DD1.


The problem is on postback I the DD1 reverts back to defualt settings and does not keep the selections

I made (for example countryId "1" SizeId  "3"


It seems that the Select Method GetDataByCountryId cannot find the SelectedValue of DD1


In the formview objectdatasource I have CountryId and SizeId from another table called profiles.


any advise appreciated







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


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.
