When I select a new item in my asp:DropDownList, I want the data in my asp:GridView to reflect info based on the newly selected item in my asp:DropDownList.

I'm using VS2012, .NET Framework 4.5 and C# (HTML 5.0 and CSS 3.0)

Seems like it should be simple ;-) ... please help me understand what I am missing!!

Thanks in advance:

Here's my C# codebehind, followed by my aspx with an Ajax Update Panel, dropdown, and gridview...

my aspx.cs:

protected void ddlTaskList_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //dsMail.UpdateParameters
    //lblCreateDistList.Visible = true;
    dsMail.UpdateParameters.Add("@TaskID", DbType.Int32, ddlTaskList.SelectedValue);
    grdEmails.DataSource= dsMail;
    grdEmails.DataBind();


}

my aspx:

   
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <Triggers>
            <asp:asyncpostbacktrigger controlid="ddlTaskList" eventname="SelectedIndexChanged" />
        </Triggers>
    <ContentTemplate>
        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlTaskList" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlTaskList_SelectedIndexChanged" runat="server"></asp:DropDownList>

        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="dsMail" runat="server" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:EagleEyeConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="stpGetEmailDataByTaskID">
            <SelectParameters>
                <asp:FormParameter DefaultValue="1" FormField="ddlTaskList.DataValueField" Name="TaskID" Type="Int32" />
            </SelectParameters>
        </asp:SqlDataSource>
        <asp:GridView ID="grdEmails" Runat="server" 
            AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
            SkinID="Professional">
            <Columns>
                <asp:HyperLinkField HeaderText="NameLnk" DataTextField="Name" DataNavigateUrlFields="Name" 
                    DataNavigateUrlFormatString="#?Name={0} " />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="TaskDesc" HeaderText="TaskDesc" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="TaskDesc" />
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

      </ContentTemplate>
  </asp:UpdatePanel>

Since you already have dropdownlist bound as a selectparameter for the grid, you should only need to call DataBind() on the grid. There should be no need to alter the datasource at all.

I would just add AppendDataBoundItems="True" to the dropdownlist.

        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlTaskList" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlTaskList_SelectedIndexChanged" runat="server" AppendDataBoundItems="True"></asp:DropDownList>
