Some fields are not conecting with the database in an aspx file

Please take a look at this page: http://dijitalrealm.com/Default.aspx. If you fill in all the fields and hit submit, only the top 4make it to the database. You can also see that the 3 fields on the bottom don't clear even though the code in the aspx.cs file indicates that they should.

Something is wrong in one or both of the files. I've scrutinized the two files half a dozen times and can't figure it out. The 3 bottom fields (city, state, zip) are exactly as they appear in the database.
This is just a dummy development database, so feel free to enter data in all the fields, submit and then reload the page to see what I mean.

I've attached the code for the aspx and aspx.cs files. I'm hoping you can see something simple and obvious that I just don't see. I've set this up in Dreamweaver if that makes a difference.

Thanks!
John

I have tried to add th record but I am not able to add anything on the same form
I am not seeing anything wrong in the Code
Can you share what you have writeen on Page_Load?
I think create a new page and try it again may help Or just Delete 3 bottom fields (city, state, zip)  and add with differnt id's

Hi, please put the codes below under page.load and try to run it.
I suspect that the button click event was not triggered.

this.TextBoxFirstName.Text = "";
this.TextBoxLastName.Text = "";
this.TextBoxEmailAddress.Text = "";
this.TextBoxAddress.Text = "";
this.TextBoxCity.Text = "";
this.TextBoxState.Text = "";
this.TextBoxZip.Text = "";

Try extending the try catch block. Start try before you start adding parameters to the sqlcommand.I am not sure , but may be the City field is throwing some exception and after the exception the compiler is going to try statement instead of adding the other two fields. Or may be change the order. Add city field at last

 cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@FirstName1", this.TextBoxFirstName.Text);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@LastName", this.TextBoxLastName.Text);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmailAddress", this.TextBoxEmailAddress.Text);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Address", this.TextBoxAddress.Text);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@State", this.TextBoxState.Text);
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Zip", this.TextBoxZip.Text);
                        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@City", this.TextBoxCity.Text);

Try to change the order and see what it does. I am guessing it will not save only the city field now. Let me know what it happens.

Thanks for posting. I don't see page-load anywhere in either the .aspx or the .aspx.cs. I assume it would go in the .aspx file. But where? Please insert it in contaext for me.

y0usuf, I tried moving Vity to the bottom but that didn't do any good.

pratima_mcs, regarding "Delete 3 bottom fields (city, state, zip)  and add with differnt id's", I assume you mean in the aspx.cs file, not in the table itself. Do you mean replace them with any id's as long as they're different?

Thanks,
John

You know I can't believe it, it turns out that the problem was that my Default.aspx.cs wasn't updating on the server, even though I was loading dependent files in Dreamweaver every time I previewed! I have to start remembering to check for that all the time I guess.

Sorry for the wild goose chase, points to all of you.

Thanks,
John
