required field validator for databound dropdownlist

Hello,

I have a web application built using VS 2005 and C#.  There is a dropdown control bound to a database table using a dataset as follows:
-----------
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddl_ICLU_Specify" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("ICLU_Specify") %>' AutoPostBack="false" DataSourceID="ds_LU_ICLU" DataTextField="LU_CODE_Desc" DataValueField="LU_CODE_Desc" AppendDataBoundItems="true">  

 </asp:DropDownList>
                                                   
            <asp:SqlDataSource id="ds_LU_ICLU" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:RLUISConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [LU_CODE_Desc] FROM [RLUIS_LU]"></asp:SqlDataSource>                                      
                                                   
                                                   
                                                    &nbsp;<span style="color:Red">*</span>
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RFV_ICLU_Specify" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Please Select" ControlToValidate="ddl_ICLU_Specify" InitialValue=" " Display="dynamic" Enabled="false"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
--------
I am attempting to validate that if the user has the web application display "Please Select" on the ddl control, the database entry is a "null" rather than "Please Select"

Right now, the RequiredFieldValidator does not seem to validate against the ddl control's data source, where the first choice is "Please Select"

Again, I just want to have the code enter a " " value into the database table rather than "Please Select"

Please help...

In This case you can add First item as :
   <asp:DropDownList ID="ddl_ICLU_Specify" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("ICLU_Specify") %>' AutoPostBack="false" DataSourceID="ds_LU_ICLU" DataTextField="LU_CODE_Desc" DataValueField="LU_CODE_Desc" AppendDataBoundItems="true" CausesValidation="true">  
<asp:ListItem value=" ">Please Select </asp:ListItem>
 </asp:DropDownList>


It will add first item as default and then It will append the valus from database

- Just add my validator below:
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="regTest" runat="server" ValidationExpression="[^Please Select]" ControlToValidate="ddl_ICLU_Specify"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

- And when you clicked the submit button, before insert to database, add the codes below:
if (ddl_ICLU_Specify.Items.Count > 0)
        {
            foreach (ListItem li in ddl_ICLU_Specify.Items)
            {
                if (li.Value == "Please Select")
                {
                    li.Value = "";
                }
            }
        }

If you have first choice available as "Please select" then youcan put it as initial value in Required field validator as below:

<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RFV_ICLU_Specify" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Please Select" ControlToValidate="ddl_ICLU_Specify"  InitialValue="Please Select " Display="dynamic" Enabled="false"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

else
After binding datasource to the Dropdownlist you can insert "Please Select" as first item and then set the Intial value in Required field validator as mentioned above. You can insert item as below :

ddl_ICLU_Specify.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("Please Select","Please Select");

Hope this will work for you.

ramkisan,
Thank you for the quick reply. I implemented your suggestion and indeed, now the validator works for the ddl data source and does not  submit when "please select" is displayed as a choice.

However, the choice "please select" is still being added to the database table. Now, i'd like to know how to code your suggestion such that instead of "please select", there is a " " value added to the database table.
Thank you in advance.

For this purpose you can set value for please select item as " " and set the initial value of the Required filed validator as " "  too, so that whenever you select "Please Select" it will put its value as " " .

Hope this will help you.

Ram

ramkisan,
Thank yoiu for your quick reply. i can see how to change the value of the requiredfieldvalidator to " " but i'm a bit confused in how to 'set value for please select item as " " '

I'm pulling the values for the ddl from a sql database table. in  this table, i have a column called  LU_Desc. this column has the description of the text displayed as choices in the ddl_ICLU_Specify.  How can I set this value as " " and still show "please select"
Thank you in advance

Ramkisan JagtapLead DeveloperCommented:
ddl_ICLU_Specify.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("Please Select"," ");

By this you can add  item "Please Select" with " " value.

Still u r not able to do that can you please share urn code?
I am available for next 15 mins.

Regards,
Ram

ramkisan,
In my default.aspx.cs file, i have the following code:

-----
protected void SqlDataSource1_Inserted(object sender, SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Exception == null)
        {
            Response.Redirect("ThankYou.aspx");
        }
    }
------
