Carrying on DropDownList selected (values/indexes ) among "Insert" operations of the same kind

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

I have struggled trying to find a way of making current values selected from all dropdownlist that I might have available inside an Insert page [for any table that I could be working on]... [of course the amount of dropdownlist boxes displayed vary with each table depending on the database schema and referential integrity].

Could be possible that anyone had developed an standard control or a piece of code that can do this as to "carry on" previously dropdownlist selected values so they can be used again and make the UI more friendly because as it is now Dynamic Data resets all values and takes you back every single time you make an Insert operation? I guess Microsoft's Dynamic Data Team working on it ... shouldn't they?

Suppose that you are working entering data for a "products" catalog and you have to introduce 20 items of the same kind. You wouldn't be supposed to be selecting values from the same dropdownlists 20 different times if you had available previously selected values which will make your job easier.

I have tried successfully building a matrix which accomplishes this but I have faced the problem that when it comes to "composite keys" my solution doesn't work because I should have available the SelectedIndex instead of the SelectedValue that Dynamic Data uses by

Insert checkboxlist selected values into sql table using createuser wizard

  

Hi,

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" 
        oncreateduser="CreateU

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.   

Thanks

Abid

When i Check the code even after this "DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString();" DownList1.SelectedValue is EMPTY"" samw with DropDownList2 . please Suggest something

DropDownList to display values from Two Tables - bold sub heading and normal Text

  
Hello I hope I am not asking simple one.  SUPPORT SERVICES<     Computing Service    Library or Data Engineering    Civil Engineering    Electrical Engineering  I have the data to display in a DropDownList control shown as above. There is a distinct category Type(example Support Services) and Category Name i.e., Computing Services. I do not want to hard code the values into DropDownList control. I like to get the data from database to display as shown in above Table. Note that Category Type should be displayed in Bold and Category Name in normal Text. Question: In order to achieve the above, 1. How many database Tables and relationships between them  2. Query the data to display in the above format in drop down 3. how should be the code behind i.e, DataTextValue and DataValueField for DropDownList. Please provide with useful code snippets or references. Thanks,

dropdownlist - default value is not 'selected value'

  
i have created a dropdown list that is populated from a sqlserver datasource. i have a separate sql command which uses the dropdownlist.selected value as a parameter and returns the command value to a label.  it mostly works fine but with one problem. when the page loads, the label value is null, because it doesn't seem to treat the dropdownlist default value as a selected value. when i use the dropdownlist to select a value, this is fine and the label begins to display the expected value. is there anyway I can make the default value when the page is loaded act like a manually selected value, so the label control never displays a null value?

how to in Insert database NULL if drop down list item is not selected ?

Accessing a row's dropdownlist values AFTER the gridview control is in Edit mode

  
Hello, I have a gridview control. When it goes into Edit mode, there are 3 dropdownlists in one cell that are populated by separate stored procedures during the RowDataBound event. The 1st dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 2nd dropdownlist is populated with. The 2nd dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 3rd dropdownlist is populated with. Everything works fine when the row is first put into Edit mode. While I'm in Edit mode and I change the selection in the 1st dropdownlist, how do I access the control so I can feed this new parameter to the 2nd dropdownlist? I have the first 2 dropdownlists set for AutoPostBack so that the Page_Load event is fired when the user changes a value. I know how to get access to these controls via the FindControl method when the row is being databound but how do I find the control during the Page_Load event? Thanks for any help!!!   Penny  

2 questions - Dropdownlist from SQL Table and Insert into several tables

  
We're trying to convert an older access app with a sql server back end (with many tables) to Sharepoint. There are entry forms, update forms, look up forms, reports, etc the 2 questions I have are: 1. How can I create a dropdownlist that gets its items from a SQL table? 2. How can I create a form that, when filled out, puts items into multiple tables? Basically, I'd like to know if any of this is possible in 2010, and does anyone have any tips on where to start?

Hi everyone, I wish to create a scenario whereby my Stored Procedure will be able to do an Insert values into two colunms but single row of a table. For instance: AS BEGIN INSERT INTO Table1 (Message1, Number1) VALUES(@Message1, @Number1) END When I do the above stored procedure using SQL Express, and Excecute the stored procedure in VS2005 C# using ADO.Net, the table is updated but the values of Message1 and Number1 are inserted into different rows i.e. when value is inserted into Message1, Number1 is '0' and vice-versa. what I really want is for both Message1 and Number1 to be inserted with values at the same row. How do I acheive this please? Many thanks in advance.
