DrownDownList

I am populating a dropdowlist in an asp.net 4.0 form as follows. when I select any item other than the first or second item, it returns to the first item after postback and selectindexchanged event doesn't work. how can I fix the error?


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            bindPartrs();
        }
    }

    void bindPartrs()
    {
        string connString = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["WMSConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
        SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connString);

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("getParts", cn);
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
        cn.Open();

        DataSet ds = new DataSet();
        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter();

        da.SelectCommand = cmd;
        da.Fill(ds);

        cboPartno.DataSource = ds;
        cboPartno.DataTextField = "PartNo";
        cboPartno.DataValueField = "partInfo";
        cboPartno.DataBind();
        cboPartno.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("---", ""));
    }

    protected void cboPartno_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
 if (cboPartno.SelectedIndex != 0)
        {
            string[] myArray2;

            myArray2 = cboPartno.SelectedValue.Split('|');

            lblPartName.Text = myArray2[0];
            lblCategory.Text = myArray2[1];
            lblModel.Text = myArray2[3];
        }
        else
        {
            lblPartName.Text = string.Empty;
            lblCategory.Text = string.Empty;
            lblModel.Text = string.Empty;
        }
    }

Can you post the definition (markup) for your dropdownlist, and also the output (view source) when the page is running?

markup:

  <asp:DropDownList ID="cboPartno" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" 
        onselectedindexchanged="cboPartno_SelectedIndexChanged" ViewStateMode="Inherit">
    </asp:DropDownList>
                            <asp:Label ID="lblPartName" runat="server" 
                                style="font-weight: 700; color: #0000CC;"></asp:Label>
                            <asp:Label ID="lblCategory" runat="server" 
                                style="font-weight: 700; color: #0000CC;"></asp:Label>
                               <asp:Label ID="lblModel" runat="server" 
                                style="font-weight: 700; color: #0000CC;"></asp:Label>


view source:

<select name="ctl00$ctl00$MainContent$ContentPlaceHolder1$cboPartno" onchange="javascript:setTimeout(&#39;__doPostBack(\&#39;ctl00$ctl00$MainContent$ContentPlaceHolder1$cboPartno\&#39;,\&#39;\&#39;)&#39;, 0)" id="MainContent_ContentPlaceHolder1_cboPartno">

The problem is that most of your dropdownlist values are the same. They need to be unique otherwise the dropdown cannot distinguish which is which.

but the partno is unique and at least the selected part no should there in the ddl, right?

thanks

The partno might be unique, but that is only the display field. The one that matters is the DataValueField, which is the one that the DropDownList uses internally to uniquely identify each item in the list.

you are right. I have only test values now but at the end the SP I added + partno, so every values become unique!

thank you very much for your support.
