I am trying to assign values to three text boxes based on the selected value of a drop down box when a button is clicked.

I am new to asp.net.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my code as nothing happens when i click the button?


Protected Sub btnPreview_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles btnPreview.Click
        If ddlMonth.SelectedItem.value = "January" Then
            CycleNo1.Text = 1
            CycleNo2.Text = 1
            CycleNo3.Text = CycleNo1.Text + 1
        ElseIf ddlMonth.SelectedItem.value = "February" Then
            CycleNo1.Text = 2
            CycleNo2.Text = 2
            CycleNo3.Text = CycleNo1.Text + 1
        ElseIf ddlMonth.SelectedItem.Value = "March" Then
            CycleNo1.Text = 3
            CycleNo2.Text = 3
            CycleNo3.Text = CycleNo1.Text + 1
        End If
    End Sub

Hi,

Could you please post the aspx page as well

Also check with the spelling and Case sensitiveness (Capital and small letters)

Goto properties of btnPreview and select Click event and enter your code:

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="WebApplication3._Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    
    </div>
        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMonth" runat="server">
            <asp:ListItem>January</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>February</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>March</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>April</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:DropDownList>
        <asp:TextBox ID="CycleNo1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:TextBox ID="CycleNo2" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:TextBox ID="CycleNo3" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

Good Morning:

Great thanks.

I also realize my combobox that is extracting data from the database has its value to the primary key which is numeric (2 rather than February) and all works fine now.

Much appreciated.
