Hi,

I am trying to insert from DetailsView  on insert mode using the controlparameters of my dropdownlist and textbox.

I used the same code several times before and they are still working fine.
But this one is not working at  all.
I don't know how to debug it.

Bascially I have one DetailsView form with, say, one textbox and one dropdownlist for name and title(in dropdownlist)

It is not inserting anything.
<DetailsView id=DetailsView1
  <fields>
      <templateField>
 
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource3  ...
InsertCommand="insert into table (lastname,title) values (@last name,@title)
<InsertParameters>  
    <asp:controlparameter controlid=DetailsView1$TextBox name="lastname" PropertyName="Text" Type="String">
<asp:controlparameter controlid=DetailsView1$DropDownList1" name="title" PropertyName="SelectedItem" Type="String">
</asp:SqlDataSource>

I got it working.

in <asp:ControlParameter > I put Direction=input and it worked.
I didn't use it before and worked fine and I wonder why it didn't like it this time.

Another question,
In dropdownlist, it didn't like the space in value.
<asp:dropdownlist>
<asp:listitem value="Male Type1//Tall Type2 //Status 2">Male Type1//Tall Type2 //Status 2</>
Because of that space in value, I got OBJECT MUST IMPLEMENT ICONVERTIBLE.
Can someone explain that to me please?
