Hi,
 I know this kind of question has been asked before but I couldnt find a concrete answer that closeley matched my problem.
Right now I have a Datagrid that looks like this
Name   Address    Phone    Edit   Delete   Generate No.
adf       adsfasd     12334   Edit   Delete    Generate No.

The last three columns are links to the repective pages with the CustomerID being passed through the links

I want to replace teh last 3 colums with 1 column that has a dropdownlist with Edit, Delete, Generate No. but keep the same functionality
The purpose is to save real estate on the page.

If someone has done something like this before and is willing to share the code, please help.

Thanks.

have a dropdownlist in a itemtemplate and bind it in itemdatabound

do this in itemdatabound

private void DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)
            {
                  if(e.Item.ItemType != ListItemType.Header && e.Item.ItemType != ListItemType.Footer)
                  {
                        System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList ddl=(DropDownList)e.Item.FindControl("DropDownList1");
                        ListItem li=new ListItem("Add",e.Item.Cells[1].Text); //say e.item.cells[1].text - contains the id which u want to pass in the link
                        ListItem li1=new ListItem("Delete",e.Item.Cells[1].Text);
                        ddl.Items.Add(li);
                        ddl.Items.Add(li1);
                  }
            }

now set the autopostback=true and when index changed redirect to other page with selected value as parameter (values contain id)

or write a javascript onchange and access the value and then response.redirect

good luck

well it should be same...u have itemdatabound in vb.net too....

and may be if loop looks diff and all that...otherwise it should be all same...

sorry i don't know much vb.net...but i am prety sure..it almost looks the same...

you just have to change the syntax..i am sure...events of datagrid are all same
