Binding dropdown list in code behind with hand coding
Hi Imar,

In the hand coding for Category and Review scenario I am binding the Dropdownlist with code behind code. Actually I want to show some arbitrary no. of extra spaces with each Category for showing nesting effect. I am even getting those spaces but when I go for the edit section of Review then the associated category is not getting assigned for that review.

And if I Bind it to EntityDataSource in mark up view and comment those binding code in code behind then I see associated category is assigned but no space is shown.

my code while binding the DDL in code behind is


public partial class Management_AddEditReviewHandCoded : System.Web.UI.Page
  int _id = -1;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString.Get(“Id”)))
      _id = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString.Get(“Id”));
  if (!Page.IsPostBack && _id > -1)
      using (PlanetWroxEntities myEntities = new PlanetWroxEntities())
        var review = (from r in myEntities.Reviews
                            where r.Id == _id
                            select r).SingleOrDefault();
          if (review != null)
              TitleText.Text = review.Title;
              SummaryText.Text = review.Summary;
              BodyText.Text = review.Body;
              ListItem myItem =
              if (myItem != null)
                    myItem.Selected = true;
              Authorized.Checked = review.Authorized;

// I am showing spaces here in both cases Edit and Insert, so I kept it separate

if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            using (PlanetWroxEntities myEntities = new PlanetWroxEntities())
                var EntireTable = from cats in myEntities.Categories
                                  select cats;

                ListItemCollection colListItemCollection = new ListItemCollection();

                var results = from cat in EntireTable
                              orderby cat.Name
                              where cat.ParentId == 0
                              select cat;

                foreach (Category objCat in results)
                    ListItem objListItem = new ListItem();
                    objListItem.Text = objCat.Name;
                    objListItem.Value = objCat.Id.ToString();
                    // Add a top level item to the final collection

                    AddChildren(colListItemCollection, objCat);

                // Bind the final collection to the drop downs
                CatList.DataSource = colListItemCollection;
                CatList.DataTextField = "Text";
                CatList.DataValueField = "Value";


further many functions go after that but those are not important here.

So how I can show spaces along with assigning associated Category to Review...

Many Thanks

Hi there,

Since this is not related to the book, please post this in a more general ASP.NET category. When you do, be sure to provide more relevant information and code. There's too much missing to understand your problem in the first place.
