Dropdown list not working

P: n/a
Hi All,

This is what I am trying to do.I have an aspx page with the the following
code block.

<asp:DropDownList id="DropDownList1" runat="server" DataSource="<%#
GetUsers%>" DataTextField="user_email" DataValueField="user_id">
</asp:DropDownList>

GetUsers is defined in the .vb file

Public Function GetUsers() As DataSet

Dim ds As DataSet
ds =
SqlHelper.ExecuteDataset(ConfigurationSettings.App Settings("ConnectionString
"), CommandType.Text, "select user_id , user_email from users")
Return ds

End Function
I am kind of frustrated that I cannot make this thing work.What am I doing
wrong ?

Are you ever calling DataBind()?
