Assigning a SelectedValue in a DropDownList
Hi all

How would I assign a SelectedValue to a DropDownList control within the Page_Load event?... I have tried the following line but doesn't seem to like it..


Dim DDL As DropDownList = FormView1.FindControl("DDLProfile")
DDL.SelectedValue = "1"

The dropdownlist is static as in it isn't bound to a DB table.

The error I get from this is the following:


quote:Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.
Many thanks

I don't know why you are getting that error, you need to check your code. Also, make sure you value is actually "1" in the ddl

Sorry all... blurry eyed.. need to get away from the PC more I think.

It was actually referring to another piece of code.. anyway all fixed.
