Morning guys,

I am carrying out an update on a dropdown control with works perfectly.
So when a user selects an item from the dropdown it updates in the
database. But on pageload I what the new selected item to be visible
and not default item on the dropdown.

EXAMPLE.
1)original item on the dropdown is A,
2)the new selected item is B
3)but on pageload it defaults to A, BUT SHOULD BE B.

thanks guys


public void dgCompensation_ItemDataBound(Object Sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
            {
   
                  if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.EditItem)
                  {
        
                      DataRowView objDataRowView = (DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem;
                      string currentDeduction = (string)objDataRowView[2].ToString();
                          DropDownList ctlDropDownList = (DropDownList)e.Item.FindControl("DeductDropDownList");
            
                        if (ctlDropDownList != null)
                        {
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("Y");
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("N");
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("E");
                        }
                        ctlDropDownList.SelectedIndex = ctlDropDownList.Items.IndexOf(ctlDropDownList.Items.FindByText(currentDeduction));
                  }
   
            }

This works for 2.0, not sure about 1.1:

            string s = "N";

            comboBox1.Items.Add("Y");
            comboBox1.Items.Add("N");
            comboBox1.Items.Add("E");

            int i = comboBox1.FindString(s);
            comboBox1.SelectedIndex = i;

string s = "N";
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("Y");
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("N");
                              ctlDropDownList.Items.Add("E");

                              int i = ctlDropDownList.FindControl(s);=========> there is no findcontrol for string
                              ctlDropDownList.SelectedIndex = i;
