There is no ViewData item of type 'IEnumerable' that has the key 'Carrera'.

When running the HttpGet action, it works fine. But when I run the HttpPost action, I recieve the error in the title. Can anyone help me out? Is it because the HttpPost doesn't have a ViewData declared? Thanks for the help.[HttpGet] public ActionResult Crear() { CarreraRepository carreraRepository = new CarreraRepository(); var carreras = carreraRepository.FindAll().OrderBy(x => x.Nombre); var carrerasList = new SelectList(carreras, "ID", "Nombre"); ViewData["Carreras"] = carrerasList; Materia materia = new Materia(); return View(materia); } [HttpPost] public ActionResult Crear(Materia materia, FormCollection values) { if (ModelState.IsValid) { repo.Add(materia); repo.Save(); return RedirectToAction("Index"); } return View(materia); }

Problems with item detail popup with ie7 and ie8

I have a new installation of Sharepoint 2010 beta.  This is straight, out of the box, fresh install, no custom code at all.  On several browsers I cannot view several items within sharepoint.  But can view them with other browsers When I open the main root site with one of the offending browser I get an error triangle at the bottom left of the browser (details below).  on these browser I am unable to do basic functionality within the sharepoint site: The Page ribbon does not load Cannot view Detail popup for anything in the site. These browsers fail: XP Desktop - ie7.0.5730.13 XP Laptop - ie8.0.6001.18702 These browsers seem to work: Windows 7 laptop - ie8.0.7600.16385 Sharepoint Server - ie8.0.6001.18882 I've tried to update the XP Laptop.  I've run Windows update several time trying to get all the .net and browser updates I can.  But it's still not working. Am to conclude that: I MUST be on windows 7 to use Sharepoint 2010? I must be on a very specific version of ie8? is this even a client issue?  or is it more of a server component issue? Incidentally, Firefox 3.5 seems to work pretty well. Here is the error details I get : on the ie7 desktop I get an error message that reads : Char: 70125, Object expected Webpage error details on the ie8 laptop. User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.

Create buttons for "new item" which create a new page of a specific content type

We have a Pages library (wiki) which supports a few content types (and page layout associated). We want to enable users to click a button for example of "new custom enterprise wiki page" - so a new page of content type article will be open in edit mode. Can someone help how to develop? (it has to mimic the behavior that happens when user creates new page from the Ribbon or Site actions and has to choose the content type, it also has to keep the new page in edit mode and not just create it).  

Dynamically add item to DropDownList??

I have an Edit page in my application that contains a DropDownList. This DDL is bound to an EntityDataSource that only shows the active "ProjectManagers". In the case where the user is editing a record that is assigned to an "inactive" ProjectManger, an "ArgumentOutOfRange" Exception is (rightfully) thrown by the DDL (because that Item wan't bound to the list, since it only binds "Active" ProjectManagers). So, I need to add this item to the DropDownList dynamically or at least add an "Inactive" item and then "select" that item in the code behind. (Although, adding an "Inactive" item would force the user to actually change the ProjectManager and that wouldn't be a good idea.) I have tried handling the OnDataBinding method with the following code:   protected void PreventErrorOnBinding(object sender, EventArgs e)    {        DropDownList theDropDownList = (DropDownList)sender;        theDropDownList.DataBinding -= new EventHandler(PreventErrorOnbinding);        theDropDownList.AppendDataBoundItems = true;        ListItem li = new ListItem(""<<Inactive>>", "0");     

How to get item selected in dropdownlist

I'm searching and trying now for the last couple of hours, so I thought the community might help.I'm filtering the rows in a gridview using a ddlDate. Now, I want to request this selected item.But: When I load the page without clicking in the DropDownList, the ddlDate.SelectedValue is empty, and the ddlDate.SelectedItem.Text.ToString() gives a NullReferenceException.Is there any way to fix this without using a listbox?

Databound DropDownList Item Value Property Localization

I am using a databound DropDownList in which the item's Text field is set to a text representation of an identifier value of type int.  I am filling the Value field of the ListItem with the int value.  All of this is being done through the setup of the DataTextField and DataValueField settings of the DropDownList control. However, since both the item Value and Text fields are strings, obviously a conversion must be performed at the time of binding to convert the non-string value to a string value.  I am making the assumption that the ToString() method for the value is invoked in order to convert the int value into a string so that it can be stored in the Value property of the ListItem. Once selections are made, I read the Value property of the SelectedItem to perform an action.  It occurred to me that converting back to the original data type might present a problem if the wrong culture information is used to perform the conversion. My question is, in the case of non-string values being automatically converted for a databound DropDownList, what culture is used to perform that conversion?  My initial guess would be the CurrentCulture, simply because no object is required to supply a ToString() overload which allows the specification of an IFormatProvider object.  However, if the System.Convert object is used to perform the conversion

Dropdownlist not firing SelectedIndexChanged on first item with autopostback true

Hi: Has anyone ever found a work around for the well documented and well known bug, the dropdownlist bug? Specifically where the SelectedIndexChange event does not fire on the first listitem, althought both autopostback and enableviewstate are true? In other words, if the first three items in the dropdownlist are red, blue, green, if you select green, the SelectedIndexChanged will fire, but if you then select red, the first item in the ddl, the event will not fire. All listitems will fire the SelectedIndexChanged event, except for the very first listitem. The HACK has always been to include a dummy item as the first list time like"Select a Color" to get around the first item bug. I have got a situation where I cannot use that hack. Ideas?  TIA, Bill  

Problems with "Set Field in Current Item" in SP 2007 Workflow

I have created a workflow in spd 2007 that begins by comparing two lists and if the “VendorName” is the same on both lists, I then auto-populating four fields by grabbing the values from another list within same site collection by using the “Set Field in Current Item” action. I have recently discovered that I cannot set additional fields beyond these four fields. I have tried this on two different sites using the same action (i.e. set field in current item) and the result is the same – I cannot add additional actions of this type? To remedy this, I removed duplicate instances of the workflow via List Settings > Workflow Settings > remove dups, but no luck. Problems still persists.   What would be causing this? Has anyone run across this issue? Help!   Thank you in advance.

How to display TreeViewItems different ways based on the item type under a single node?

Hi, I am having trouble trying to display hiearchical data under each node in two different ways depending on the data.  I hope someone will be able to provide me some help on this since I am rather new to WPF development. Maybe I am going about this all wrong but for now, I am trying to create a customized TreeView to represent data similar to the xml I provided in the code below.  The <ItemsPresenter/> instances listed in the code are not exactly doing what I need.  I will probably need to filter the content that I list with each of the two <ItemsPresenter/> tags based on the type of each item although I have no idea if this is possible.   <Window x:Class="Wpf_treeview_testing.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300"> <!-- * The "xmlData" describe roughly the type of data that I require visual representaion of. * Since I could not find a WPF Control that will present a Hierachical Data Template close to what we need, I am trying to setup a TreeView to represent this information by using a ControlTemplate for TreeViewItem. * The preferred result is to present different items types in

hi sir,

i'm using asp.net 3.5 and what im trying to do is create the dropdownlist item dynamically base on value in each datarow, then user select from dropdownlist and click button to postback, when postback system should be able to know what value has been selected by user. the problem with following code is during postback, event of "OnItem_Created" get fired and e.Item.DataItem return null, therefore the dropdownlist will not get populated with the items and that caused the dropdownlist unable to return value selected by user. am i missing anything? is "OnItemCreated" the best place to dynamic create the dropdownlist item? any help will be appreciate. thanks!!

Select Item from Dropdownlist


I have a dropdown list created via MVCContrib FluentHTML - how do I perform a postback when the user selects any item in the dropdownlist? 

Howto add selected item from dropdownlist to a textbox on the same form?


 I have been trying to figure out what the proper method is to be able to have a dropdownlist on the same form that holds a number of textboxes for properties. I am using a strongly typed typed view which was generated by the Visual Studio IDE so it contains textboxes for all of the properties of my strongly typed class.  The class has a few properties that can have a set of possilbe answers; I'd like to displat those possible answers in a dropdownlist and then when the user fills in the form and clicks the submit button the selected item would be transferred to the correct property. I have a solution but think there must be a better solution out there and was wondering if anyone might point me in the right direction.

So say I have a model with 3 properties, FirstName, LastName. and MaritalStatus.

If I generated a view for this then I'd get an aspx file with the following:


    <% using (Html.BeginForm()) {%>
        <%: Html.ValidationSummary(true) %>

            <div class="editor-label">
                <%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.FirstName) %>

setting dropdownlist item in page load


 I can't get the following to set on page load.  I want the month selected be the current month, on page load.  What needs to change here?

Issue with Announcement content type and adding a new item



I have the following issue with the (Silverlight?) form to add a new item:If the screen has many fields so scroll bars appear (i.e. it's longer than the screen), you can move up and down. YET, if you press to attach a file, the scroll bars dissapear, so you can't see the rest of the form.

To reproduce: 

a) make an annoucement list

b) Add a choice field, add many choises and enable multiple values - in order to have a longer-than-the-screen input form.

c) Go to the list , press add-new-item and attach a file: After that, you won;t be able to see all the input form.



Dropdownlist postback always select first item


Hello, I am new at Asp.net. I hope some experts can help me.

I have 2 dropdownlist controls (ddl1 and ddl2). When I pick an item from ddl1, it will update ddl2. The problem is when I pick an item in ddl2, it always selects the first item in the list. Is it that the ddl2 autopostback causes the first ddl1 to reload and results the ddl2 to be refreshed also? Or I didn't set something correctly?

thanks in advance.
