drop down list databind with new item inserted in detailsview
Posted on 2014-01-30
On my page I have two object data sources; the first has a bound drop down
list, with an item number and a description. The second has a bound details view showing
everything for the item number.
Selecting an item in the drop down list, causes the details to be shown, as
intended. When I insert a new record from the details view, I want to add it
to the drop down list and select it.
I tried to just do a:
Private Sub dvRecipeItem_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs) Handles dvRecipeItem.ItemInserted
And even though Databind does load the newly added item to the drop down list, it does not make it the selected value, thus the record displayed on the details view is just whichever item number is first since it is ordered by item number
can some one explain me how to make it work for the scenario i described on the second paragraph?
thank you very much.
