Hi,


Im using VS2005 with VB.

I have the following line in my page:
<asp:DropDownList SelectedValue='<%#Eval("Status") %>' DataSourceID="odsStatusList" ID="ddlStatus" runat="server" DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key" /></td>

which creates a drop down list and binds the selected value.  What I want to do is:

if #Eval("Status") = "Draft" then

    <asp:DropDownList SelectedValue='<%#Eval("Status") %>' DataSourceID="odsStatusList" ID="ddlStatus" runat="server"       DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key" /></td>

else

   response.write("Status")

end if

but I dont know how to use the bound item (Status) within code in the page.

Thanks in advance!

use TemplateColumn.

See if this will work

<asp:TemplateColumn>
  <ItemTemplate>

<%# if Eval("Status") = "Draft" then%>

    <asp:DropDownList SelectedValue='<%#Eval("Status") %>' DataSourceID="odsStatusList" ID="ddlStatus" runat="server"       DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key" /></td>

<%# else%>

   <asp:Label id="lblStatus runat="server" Text="Status" />
<%# end if%>


</ ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>

also try

<asp:TemplateColumn>
  <ItemTemplate>

    <asp:DropDownList SelectedValue='<%#Eval("Status") %>' DataSourceID="odsStatusList" ID="ddlStatus" runat="server"       DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key" Visible='<%# iif(Eval("Status") = "Draft", True, False)%>' />

   <asp:Label id="lblStatus runat="server" Text="Status" Visible='<%# iif(Eval("Status") <> "Draft", True, False)%>' />
</ ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>

Hi,

its saying templatecolumn is not a known element - i guess because its not part of a gridview?

Anyway I'm off for the weekend now so I'll check back in next week.  Thanks.

then just try

<asp:DropDownList SelectedValue='<%#Eval("Status") %>' DataSourceID="odsStatusList" ID="ddlStatus" runat="server"       DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key" Visible='<%# iif(Eval("Status") = "Draft", True, False)%>' />

   <asp:Label id="lblStatus runat="server" Text="Status" Visible='<%# iif(Eval("Status") <> "Draft", True, False)%>' />

The equivalent for TemplateColumn (1.1 DataGrid) with the GridView (2.0) is TemplateField.
