Dropdown within repeater not updating

Hi,

I have a Dropdownlist inside a repeater that is not updating. I am getting error

An unhandled exception of type 'System.StackOverflowException' occurred in System.Data.dll

Open in new window


My design is as follows

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList3" runat="server" DataValueField="Line" SelectedValue='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Line")%>' OnDataBinding="getLines"></asp:DropDownList>

Open in new window


Code is

Protected Sub getLines(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim DropDownList3 As DropDownList = DirectCast(sender, DropDownList)

        Dim cmd As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter("select Line from dbo.production_lines order by Line", cnn)
        Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet()
        cmd.Fill(ds)

        DropDownList3.DataSource = ds
        DropDownList3.DataTextField = ("Line")
        DropDownList3.DataBind()

        ds.Clear()
        cmd.Dispose()
End Sub

You say there is a repeater in the title but I don't see any repeater defined or code for it in the code behind.

Please check if DataSet fills or not! Error shows "It could not finds the list", and you are trying to assig its' value.

Try below code
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList3" runat="server" OnDataBinding="getLines">/asp:DropDownList>

Open in new window

Back-End
Protected Sub getLines(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim DrpList3 As DropDownList = DirectCast(sender, DropDownList)

        Dim cmd As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter("select Line from dbo.production_lines order by Line", cnn)
        Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet()
        cmd.Fill(ds)

        DrpList3.DataSource = ds
        DrpList3.DataBind()

        ds.Clear()
        cmd.Dispose()
End Sub

Daniel, the repeater is as follows;

<table style="width: 100%;">

                                        <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
                                            <HeaderTemplate>

                                                <tr>
                                                    <td>Line</td>
                                                    <td>Role</td>
                                                    <td>Name</td>
                                                    <td>Level</td>
                                                    <td>Present</td>
                                                </tr>

                                            </HeaderTemplate>

                                            <ItemTemplate>
                                                <tr>

Ok I've sorted it using the following;

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList3" runat="server" DataValueField="Line" SelectedValue='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Line") %>' DataSourceID="ProductionDataSource1" DataTextField="Line"></asp:DropDownList>
                                                        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="ProductionDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:productionConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [Line] FROM [production_lines] ORDER BY [Line]"></asp:SqlDataSource>

Open in new window


Everything happens in the repeater now
