Hello Experts,

I have this function which Returns a list of values as shown below:
 public static List<ReportFilters> GetAllFilters(ReportBuilder Report)
        {
            return ReportBuilderDAL.ListAllFilters(Report.ReportID);
        }

The above one will return List of filters as shown Below:

ColumnName       Condition            FilterValue1           FilterValue2
LastName             Equals                 Smith                      Null
DOB                      Between              1/1/1972                1/1/2000
City                       Not In                  London                  Null

In my ASPX Page I have a user control which Contains 2 dropdown Boxes and two textboxes.

The firstdropdown lists all the ColumnNames
The second Dropdown Lists all the Conditons and textboxes will hold some values.

I am using five instances of the above mentioned usercontrol. My question is, how do I populate the above values in the usercontrol.
For eg.
The selectedvalue in first dropdown should be LastName, Condition should be equals and the first textbox shoudl show smith.

How do I do this Please help

I think the easiest way would be to expose a 'ReportFilter' property on the user control.
private ReportFilter _selectedFilter = null;

public ReportFilter SelectedFilter {
get { return _selectedFilter; }
set { _selectedFilter = value; }
}

Then bind the data during OnLoad:
if (_selectedFilter != null) {
dropdown1.SelectedValue = _selectedFilter.ColumnName;
dropdown2.SelectedValue = _selectedFilter.Condition;
textbox1.Text = _selectedFilter.FilterValue1
}

Or maybe set up a BindingDataSource. This should be easy with Visual Studio's wizard - Just make sure you change the public property to update the binding source instead of the private variable.

You might also have to expose a couple of public List<string> properties that contains the *possible* values for the dropdownlists.

You could also include the usercontrol in a repeater if you wanted.
