ASP.NET error with DropDownList

I get the following error:

Parser Error

Parser Error Message: System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItemCollection must have items of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItem'. 'asp:DropDownList' is of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList'.

The error comes from the following code:

<asp:DropDownList ID="GenericTypeBox" runat="server"
                                    DataSourceID="GenericLaborDataSource" DataTextField="code_value_desc"
                                    DataValueField="code_value" Visible="False">

The Problem is with your GenericLaborDataSource . . . you have the wrong type.

Change it from a ListItemCollection to a SqlDataSource.

From the code you posted, at first glance, it doesnt appear that the <asp:DropDownList tags are being closed correctly with either />  or </asp:DropDownList>
