MS Dynamics CRM 3.0

Asp.Net Programming

why is the selectedvalue of this dropdownlist empty?


This code sends back the selectedvalue of a dropdownlist to itself
But the value (dd in the code) is empty.
I must say: it works with EnableViewState="true".

My question is: dropdownlist control doesn't need viewstate for keeping the
value when the ListItems are put declaratively. Why not when the ListItems
are put programmatically?


if a select is declared declaratively, on postback the item values are
set in oninit by the code the form generates.

if you dynamically update the list, you need to also do it in oninit of
the postback.

if viewstate is enabled, the list is stored in viewstate, and the
control reloades the list in onviewstate load. also the render value is
saved, so the onchange event can be fired.

If you put them in programmatically, in the page load, it reloads every time
the page posts back
You must surround the loading of the ddl  with an postback block (if not
page.ispostback then...)
