Hi,

   I have one question on asp.net formview control.
I have a formview control on my webpage. It has a dropdown list. I am populating it with data coming from database. Also, the dropdown list should have one more value in the list which is coming from session variable(from another page) and that should be the default value for the ddlist. I can populate the dropdown vid the data from database. But i donno how to add the session value in the dropdown list.
 Can i have suggestions.

Thanks

After binding dropdownlist from database.
You can add the item from session by

dropdownlist.items.add(new listItem(session("DropDowlistItemToAddText"),session("DropDowlistItemToAddValue")))

Or you can also use AppendDataItems=True Property of dropdownlist

If you do this FIrst Add the Session item to the dropdownlist
dropdownlist.items.add(new listItem(session("DropDowlistItemToAddText"),session("DropDowlistItemToAddValue")))

And then bind the dropdownlist from database
