Selected Item in a Dropdown

Hi,

I'm trying to create a function that will show the current value of a
datagrid when you go into the edit mode of the datagrid. At the moment when
ever I hit edit it just shows me a list of values in the dropdown list with
the default selected value always chosen, rather than the actual value shown
in the datagrid.

I would really appritiate any help!

Thanks

...:: CODE

Function GetSelectedInde x(ByVal OID As String) As Integer

Dim Myconn As New
SqlConnection(C onfigurationSet tings.AppSettin gs("strConn"))
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("Sel ectOffice", Myconn)
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Sto redProcedure

Myconn.Open()

Dim myReader As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteRead er()
'Populate the reader
If myReader.HasRow s Then
Do While myReader.Read()
Console.WriteLi ne(vbTab & "{0}" & vbTab & "{1}",
myReader.GetInt 32(0), myReader.GetStr ing(1))
Loop
Else
Console.WriteLi ne("No rows returned.")
End If
myReader.Close( )

End Function

Hi, I have a problem in assigning the selected value in the dropdown to a hidden control. It goes like this. I have a repeater control. In the repeater control’s item template, I have a hidden control and a placeholder control. I must generate the required number of dropdowns and the buttons dynamically based on a field value in my dataset. So I do the same in my code behind and add the generated controls to the place holder in the...

Hello (again), I have gotten the dropdown list functionality to work through a few tricks (probably not the most efficient, but it works) but I am not sure how to set the default selected value. I have tried setting various values to represent the default value with little success. Essentially I am looking to have the first item in the list be the default selected item. I noticed in the properties for a dtat grid you could set a default...

I must be missing something obvious. I have a drop down list in asp.net and it populates the states from a database. When I view the source of the page I get the standard option tags with the associated values. It all looks good. When I submit the form and some of the required fields aren't filled in the dropdown always reset to the first item in the list. First, how do I get it to stick. I've tried setting enableviewstate to true, but...

I have a listbox that is databound when my form loads. A user can then select and option using a drop down box. When the user selects an option the corresponding items in the listbox gets selected. How can I show those selected items at the top of my listbox. The issue is when the user selects an item and it is in the middle of the list, the user is not able to know an item it is selected or not unless they scroll through the listbox.

I have a formview with a few dropdownlists (software version, database version, etc). When a software version is selected, the database version dropdownlist updates itself accordingly. When in edit mode, everything works fine - the selected value in each list defaults to the value from the database record (selectedvalue=bind...). However, in insert mode (insertitem), it is not working. I pass in a value on the query string that I would...

Hi! I have an .aspx with some controls that are created dynamically. The items are populated into the box by setting the DataSource-property to a list. In addition I specify the text and value with DataTextField and DataValueField; this works as expected. However, my problems arises when I want to read the selected value (i.e. after a postback caused by a change in the DropDown), the selected item is always the first item in the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
