Hello,
I'm trying to change SqlDataSource control behind code, in vb.net, with Button. But just cannot get throught problem 'Must declare the scalar'. I was reading so many topics, but just cannot get results.

Asp.net code:
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
<br />
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownListFirstName" runat="server">
    <asp:ListItem>John</asp:ListItem>
    <asp:ListItem>Paul</asp:ListItem>
    <asp:ListItem>James</asp:ListItem>
</asp:DropDownList>
<br />
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownListSecondName" runat="server">
    <asp:ListItem>Brown</asp:ListItem>
    <asp:ListItem>White</asp:ListItem>
</asp:DropDownList>
<br />
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownListTown" runat="server">
    <asp:ListItem>New York</asp:ListItem>
    <asp:ListItem>London</asp:ListItem>
    <asp:ListItem>Paris</asp:ListItem>
</asp:DropDownList>
<br />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
<br />
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
<ContentTemplate>

<div>
    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
        EmptyDataText="There are no data records to display.">
        <Columns>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="FirstName" HeaderText="FirstName" 
                SortExpression="FirstName" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="SecondName" HeaderText="SecondName" 
                SortExpression="SecondName" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Town" HeaderText="Town" SortExpression="Town" />
        </Columns>
    </asp:GridView>
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:database21ConnectionString %>"
        
        SelectCommand="SELECT [FirstName], [SecondName], [Town] FROM [test]">
    </asp:SqlDataSource>
</div>
</ContentTemplate>
</asp:UpdatePanel>
</form>

Vb.net code:
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Partial Class zest
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        SqlDataSource1.SelectCommand = "Select * From test Where FirstName = @FirstName"
        SqlDataSource1.SelectParameters.Add("@FirstName", "John")
        SqlDataSource1.DataBind()
    End Sub
End Class

Thanks in advance for help!
