DropDownList MasterPage Error Navigate To URL erro help.

20 New Member
I hope someone can help me. I have an error that I can not seem to figure out. All I need is an unbound dropdownlist to navigate to urls withing the website. I have gotten as far as to populate field but I am stuck at this point. I am new to asp.net and this is my first website.

Below is my code please help.

Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page.

This is the error

HttpException (0x80004005): Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page.] System.Web.UI.M asterPage.Creat eMaster(Templat eControl owner, HttpContext context, VirtualPath masterPageFile, IDictionary contentTemplate Collection) +533 System.Web.UI.P age.get_Master( ) +49 System.Web.UI.P age.ApplyMaster Page() +17 System.Web.UI.P age.ProcessRequ estMain(Boolean includeStagesBe foreAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAf terAsyncPoint) +1368
This error seems to indicate that the way I have placed the code is incorrect but I am unsure how to format it correctly.

Here is the code below
<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile= "~/MasterPage2.mas ter" AutoEventWireup ="true" Title="Welcome Guest"%>
<script language="VB" script runat="server">

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArg s)

Dim blnAutoNav As Boolean

If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
' Create a new ListItemCollect ion
Dim myLocations As New ListItemCollect ion()

' Add items to the collection
myLocations.Add (New ListItem("Where do you want to go?", Request.ServerV ariables("URL") ))
myLocations.Add (New ListItem("Reque st Membership", "http://www.url.com/CreateAccount.a spx"))
myLocations.Add (New ListItem("FAQS" ))

' Databind our DDL to the ListItemCollect ion we just filled
ddlLocations.Da taSource = myLocations
ddlLocations.Da taTextField = "Text"
ddlLocations.Da taValueField = "Value"
ddlLocations.Da taBind()
End If

' Find out current auto-navigation status and add JS to handle it if needed.
If Request.QuerySt ring("auto") = "True" Then
blnAutoNav = True

' This adds the javascript to automatically redirect to the selected
' location whenever a new item is selected in the dropdownlist.
ddlLocations.At tributes("oncha nge") = "javascript:win dow.location = " _
& "document.frmNa v.ddlLocations[document.frmNav .ddlLocations.s electedIndex].value;"
blnAutoNav = False
End If

' Add the link to this page that toggles the autonav to
' the opposite of its current setting.
litAutoNavLink. Text = "<a href=""" & Request.ServerV ariables("URL") _
& "?auto=" & CStr(Not (blnAutoNav)) & """>Toggle Auto Navigation</a>"
End Sub

Sub btnGo_Click(ByV al sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Response.Redire ct(ddlLocations .SelectedItem.V alue)
End Sub


<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHol derID="ContentP laceHolder1">

<form id="frmNav" runat="server">

<asp:literal id="litAutoNavL ink" runat="server" />


<div style="right: -342px; width: 359px; position: relative; top: -83px; height: 44px">

I remember in 1.1 that I would put not to populate a given dropdownlist unless it was not Page.IsPostBack. But in 2.0 where I use the DAL and no codefile, I don't see where to effect this. Any help is appreciated. I want my dropdownlist to keep what the use selected when the page refreshes. Thanks.

The problem I am having is with the SelectedIndexChanged event not always firing or the SelectedIndex property not being correct when the event does fire. The code is below, but here are some details first. The DropDownList is actually a custom control called DropDownListWithCommandEvent that inherits from DropDownList. The reason I have created this is to create a DropDownList that will bubble a Command event to the containing...
