D

Dave M

i am trying to trap the value of one dropdownlist (in a datagrid
edititemtemplate column) at the time its selectedindexchanged event
fires and use its value to query a db and rebind a second dropdownlist
(in a second datagrid edititemtemplate column).

here's my code:

<td width="9"><asp:datagrid id="dgManageVehicles" runat="server"
Width="472px" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellSpacing="1"
CellPadding="3" BackColor="White" BorderWidth="2px"
BorderStyle="Ridge" BorderColor="White" AllowSorting="True"

GetMakeSelIndex(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "VehicleMake")) %>'</asp:dropdownlist>
</EditItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Model">
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:label id="Label2" runat="server"

<asp:BoundColumn DataField="RegYear"

</ItemTemplate>
<EditItemTemplate>
<asp:Checkbox id=ChkUPDIsNew runat="server"

</asp:TemplateColumn>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="Carfinderprice"

EditText="Edit"></asp:EditCommandColumn>
</Columns>
<PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" ForeColor="Black"
BackColor="#C6C3C6"></PagerStyle>
</asp:datagrid></td>

Ive Got a custom event call :-

OnSelectedIndexChanged="MakeIndexChange_Command"

Q, what 'eventargs' do i need to pass to trap the selected value of the
first dropdown from the datagrid and use it to rebind the second
dropdown?
