Default Login control with username dropdown not working

Hi,
I need a dropdown list of usernames in login control to authenticate users. I followed your webpage
http://imar.spaanjaars.com/409/chang...-list-of-users
However, for some reason, the login control still seems to be expecting a username entry rather than getting the selected value from dropdown.
I also tried to display (using response.write) the selected dropdown value in logingIn event...but no message appears.

Here is my code. Please help!
(BTW I am using a SQLdatasource to populate the dropdown with usernames instead of objectdatasource.)

Code:
<%@ Page Title="Login" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Welcome.Master" AutoEventWireup="true"
 CodeBehind="Login.aspx.cs" Inherits="devhub.Login" %>
<asp:Content ID="HeaderContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent">
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
   
    <table>
        
        <tr>
            <td>
               <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server" OnAuthenticate="Login1_Authenticate" DisplayRememberMe="false" >
                   <LayoutTemplate>
                       <table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" 
                           style="border-collapse:collapse;">
                           <tr>
                               <td>
                                   <table border="0" cellpadding="0">
                                       <tr>
                                           <td align="center" colspan="2">

                                       </tr>
                                       <tr>

you should check it again step by step because in my view you did well but if the result not shown you can recheck with highly focus then you got the result.
