Default Visual Web Developer Help

Good afternoon,
I am writing a web application using visual web developer and while trying to create a dynamic dropdown using the SqlDataSource i am getting these errors when i try to correct either one:
'SqlDataSource1_Selecting' is not a member of 'ASP.testdirectortest_aspx

and

Control 'DropDownList1' of type 'DropDownList' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.

Anyone ever seen this before?
Here is the code i am trying to use:
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource2" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:test1ConnectionString %>"
              OnSelecting="SqlDataSource1_Selecting" SelectCommand="SELECT [TEST_FACILITY] FROM [Test_Facility_Data]">
          </asp:SqlDataSource>
          <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2"
              DataTextField="TEST_FACILITY" DataValueField="TEST_FACILITY" OnSelectedIndexChanged="DropDownList1_SelectedInde xChanged1">
          </asp:DropDownList>

thanks

Hi,
the first thing is that all controls must be enclosed within the <form> tag of asp.net, thats the first requirement. so your form code must look something like this
<form id="formiId" runat="server">
your code here ...
...

</form>

I presume your other error might go with the code coming inside the form, if no then re-post so that we can check on the error specifically.
