Creating a page that displays results from dropdownlist ASP.net

Dear all.

I have now created a form with 3 dropdlists that cascade succesfully.

Being unfamiliar with the terminology could anyone please assist with the following

1, I now need a submit button that loads a new page with the selected results of the 3rd ddlist in a repeating grid view. In addition to this two fields must be editable.

Please see my below code for what I have this far.

Note please ignore the country references this is from a previous tutorial file that I plan to clear up once more familiar with ASP.net

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if(!IsPostBack)
{
BindContrydropdown();
}

}

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(strConnection);
con.Open();

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.Fill(ds);
con.Close();
ddlCountry.DataSource = ds;
ddlCountry.DataTextField = "DeptName";
ddlCountry.DataValueField = "DeptSID";
ddlCountry.DataBind();
ddlCountry.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--", "0"));
ddlState.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--", "0"));
ddlRegion.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--", "0"));

Hi,

I think what you need on that button click event is pass the values as querystring from there to another page.

Response.Redirect("editPage.aspx?countryId=" + ddlCountry.SelectedValue + "&stateId= " + ddlState.SelectedValue+ "&regionId= " + ddlRegion.SelectedValue);

Open in new window


This assumes that yuo are grabbing the values of all three (country, state, region).

Then you pass the values to the page you wish to perform the edit. In my example, I used editPage.aspx.

Finally, on editPage.aspx, you grab those values something like this:

var selectedCountryval = Request.QueryString["countryId"];
 var selectedStateval = Request.QueryString["stateId"];
var selectedRegionval = Request.QueryString["stateId"];

Open in new window


Then you can query your db and perform your update sates and then edit whatever record.

Note, I am not a C# so my casing might be off.

Good luck
