Mudassar: Down List-with-Selected-Value-in-Edit Item Template-of-Grid I have a database table with Integer type. : Drop Down List dd Region ID = (Drop Down List)row. What can we do to surface these methods: The method itself is pretty simple.It iterates over the control collection of the Grid View Row and calls Extract Values From Cell on each cell which puts values into the dictionary.After you've created a layout with a data control of your choice and eventually bound them to some datasource, you almost always want to get that data back out of them(and why wouldn't you, its your data).One thing you'll learn about developing webpages is that its like petting a porcupine (yikes).
I often see people on the forums writing code like this: Find Control is a very powerful method on Control that allows you to search for a nested control, NOT synonymous to DOM function get Element By Id.2-way Data Binding2-way Databinding is a cool feature in ASP.NET 2.0 which allows the user to write some special syntax to bind against property values they would like to extract from a control.If you go with the flow, you probably won't get stuck, but the moment you try to go against the grain you end up with a hand full of thorns.Most of the data controls have events ending in ing and ed e.g. In most of the event handlers of the ing events it is easy to get the values from the event args.
Unfortunately these dictionaries are only filled out if you are bound to a datasource control :(.
