ASPX Dropdownlist - ASP.NET General

Hi, I have an ASPX Dropdown list. I am unsure how to set my datasource. I have a table that has 2 columns, an identity column and a description column. Has anyone got some sample code on how to do this. I find it hard to get any sample code on the web. Thanks, Sean...

    Default ASPX Dropdownlist

    Hi,

    I have an ASPX Dropdown list.

    I am unsure how to set my datasource.

    I have a table that has 2 columns, an identity column and
    a description column.

    Has anyone got some sample code on how to do this.

    I find it hard to get any sample code on the web.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Default Re: ASPX Dropdownlist

    hi Sean,

    look at [url]http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/aspplus/[/url] for a lot of
    samples..

    for your ddl problem:

    DropDownList ddl = new DropDownList();
    ddl.DataSource = yourDataTable; /// can also be a DataSet
    ddl.DataTextField = "NameOfFieldWhichContainsText";
    ddl.DataValueField ="NameOfFieldWhichContainsValue";
    ddl.DataBind(); /// get the values from the DataSource

    that should do the trick
    regards
    karten
