Conflict between DropDownList and Gridview

Hi I am still fairly new to Web Development so please be easy with me if this is simplistic question :-)

I am using Visual Web Developer/VS2005 and VB.NET and on one particular web page I have both a Dropdownlist and a Gridview.

The gridview is bound to a SQL Table and when it is on it's own (i.e. without the dropdownlist on the same page the gridview works fine.

If I then put the dropdownlist on the same page, and bind it to another table in the database the gridview still works fine.

If (and this is how I want it) I manually add items to the dropdownlist and don't bind it to a table) then the gridview will not even display on the page.

I am at a loss as to why this should be, as the gridview and dropdownlist are not linked, and neither are the tables in the database.

Any help to get me going again would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks
...Steve

Oh one additional piece of information - the dropdownlist and gridview are together in a webusercontrol.

Hi,

When you say the gridview will not even display on the page, does it provide you any error messages?

Could you possibly provide a sample of the code you are using to add the items to the drop down list?

Cheers

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the response.

I have now set up a "new" web-site consisting of one page and webuser control.

On the webuser control, I put one dropdownlist and one gridview, and then put the webusercontrol onthe webpage. If the dropdownlist is not bound to a datasource the gridview simply does not display.

There is no error message or anything, simply nothing happens (seems bizarre to me :-)

- In the new example I am not even trying to populate the dropdownlist - however for reference the code I previously used to populate the dropdownlist is


---------------
 If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            cmdDB.CommandText = "SELECT Store_Name, Store_Number FROM opappslive.dbo.APPT_Store_Details order by store_number"
            rsDB = cmdDB.Execute
            rsDB.MoveFirst()

            DropDownList1.Items.Clear()
            DropDownList1.Items.Add("Unknown")
            While rsDB.EOF = False
                DropDownList1.Items.Add(Mid(rsDB.Fields("store_number").Value, 3, 4) & " " & rsDB.Fields("store_name").Value)
                rsDB.MoveNext()
            End While
        End If
       
    End Sub

----------------

Thanks forany help
... Steve
