Hi,

I have 2 dropdowns in my screen with "Sector" and "NewsSectorType". when i select values from these 2 dropdowns, after click on Add button i want to bind selected values to gridview.
So my gridview will have only 2 columns.  

First dropdown values i get from database from one column of one table. Second dropdown values are hardcoded values.

How to do this? please find the attached file for more information.


Thanks,

To update this kind of values, it is better you use update panel. So the entire page will not be post back.
To get your output just follow these steps
1. Select the values from DropDown.
2. Click on Add Button.
3. In add function, you are expecting to store the values in Database.
4. After storing values to Database. Again Bind the GridView in Add Button Click event
GridView1.DataBind();

Only 3rd row is displaying. Pls see the image to understand clearly. first row is empty when i add 2nd row.
