Dropdown list not working on remote servers

Hi

Some of the controls in a web app (orginally VS 2005 converted to visual studio 2010) like dropdowns are causing issues.

For example - dropdown lists are  populating from the datasource when run locally but not when pushed to a remote server. Strangely when I use the same data source on a gridview the data does display - see attached screen shots and code. So the data is being pulled on the remote server it's just not binding to the dropdown list for some reason?

Very strange issue! This probably be something wrong related to the dropdown list data-binding.  If there is no way to work it out. You may try to apply some UI dropdown list control, don't forget to get some view on the C# dropdown list tutorial.

i think you forgot the attachment :)

is this classic asp or .NET? I'm guessing it's .NET since you're using a gridview, so you may want to add that as a topic...
