            command.CommandText = "adm_GetCustomerIdForDatapark";

            // execute the stored procedure and return the results

You can solve that on a SQL level, if when you select a value you add it to another table OR you remove the value from the current list.

Please demonstratte with this procedure
or i was thinking


ddlCustomer.DataSource = dataparkIntregation.GetCustomer();
ddlCustomer.DataTextField = "Customer_Id";
rebind here
string removed = ddlCustomer.SelectedValue;
ddlCustomer.SelectedValue.Remove(removed);
ddlCustomer.DataBind();
ddlCustomer.Items.Insert(0, string.Empty);
 
Can you help either way to resolve it

I chage the procedure
 

if @customer_id IS NULL 

select Distinct customer_id from Trailers

else 

Begin 

if @customer_id IS NOT NULL

change the component for binding
 

{ 

// get a configured DbCommand object 

DbCommand command = GenericDataAccess.CreateCommand(); 

// set the stored procedure name 

command.CommandText = "adm_GetCustomerIdForDatapark"; 

// create a new parameter

parameter.Value = customerId; 

parameter.DbType = DbType.Int32; 

command.Parameters.Add(parameter); 

// execute the stored procedure and return the results 

return GenericDataAccess.ExecuteSelectCommand(command); 

}
 

change the binding
 

private void BindCustomers() 

{ 

// Needed to bind the data bound controls to the data source 

string testCustomerId = ddlCustomer.SelectedValue.ToString(); 

int customerId = Convert.ToInt32(testCustomerId); 

ddlCustomer.DataSource = dataparkIntregation.GetCustomer(customerId); 

ddlCustomer.DataTextField = "Customer_Id"; 

ddlCustomer.DataBind(); 

ddlCustomer.Items.Insert(0, string.Empty); 

  

}
 

Rebind here
 

/ Needed to bind the data bound controls to the data source

I think you should keep the procedure as it was in the first version.
In the .NET code, you probably have a button that you click or you had set the selectedChange event on the dropdownlist. On either case, in the event you should get the selected index, do your insert operation, then you should ddlX.RemoveAt(ddlX.SelectedIndex);
And you should not do a rebind.

Ok, if you are required to rebind, then I need to understando how things are working on your code...
- When you select someone on the ddl, what happens? Do you call a code to insert in a table?
- If you insert in a table, do you have a key for that?
- If you dont use a table, what do you do?

By the logic I'm seeing on the partial code you are showing, on the btnenable_click you should call those 4 lines again:

ddlCustomer.DataSource = dataparkIntregation.GetCustomer();
ddlCustomer.DataTextField = "Customer_Id";
ddlCustomer.DataBind();
ddlCustomer.Items.Insert(0, string.Empty);

Also, seems that your procedure that list the customers should be a little different, because you need to add some clause that will exclude from the query result the customers that are already enabled.

if you do that, this will work fine.
