Default dropdownlist to database value - ASP.NET General

You may add DB items to dropdown either by data binding or "by hand" using similar code in some loop: LI = New ListItem LI.Value = "value" LI.Text = "Display text" SomeDropDown.Items.Add(LI) You can set selected item for example using: lstVideoName.Items.FindByValue("value").Selected = True -- Michal A.
