i am filling dropdownlist using cascading ajax extender. i taken help of ajax site and build a code to fill the control.

my question is how do i get parent selected item value. my web service code to fill target value

CascadingDropDownNameValue[] GetProd(string knownCategoryValues , string category)


StringDictionary kv = CascadingDropDown.ParseKnownCategoryValuesString(knownCategoryValues);

//string subgrp ;

//int sub1;

//if (!kv.ContainsKey("Prod") || !Int32.TryParse(kv["Prod"], out sub1))

//// if (!kv.ContainsKey("Prod"))


// return null;



SPGETPRODUCT_GIVENSUBTableAdapter prd = new DsprdTableAdapters.SPGETPRODUCT_GIVENSUBTableAdapter();

Dsprd.SPGETPRODUCT_GIVENSUBDataTable prdgrp = prd.GetProd(kv["Prod"]);

List<CascadingDropDownNameValue> values = new List<CascadingDropDownNameValue>();foreach (DataRow dr in prdgrp)


new CascadingDropDownNameValue((string)dr["PM_PRD_NAME"], dr["PM_PRD_CODE"].ToString()));


return values.ToArray();


This is giving me no out put as kv["Prod"] is showing null value.

Cascading code in aspx is

                                       LoadingText="Please wait ..."

Getting The Selected Value of a DropDownList
I have a DropDownList that is populated with selections from a database on the page load event. It displays fine with all the correct values, BUT there is a problem when I try to process its data. I eventually reference the DropDownList during a button's server click event. I want to know which value is selected, and I am trying to do so with a call to: DropDownList.SelectedItem.Value; The problem is that such a call is alway referencing the first item of the list, not the one the user selects. What am I doing wrong? In your page load event handler do you put data bind code ins...

Getting DropDownlist's DataTextValue Selected Value Given the SelectedValue and/or Selected Item
In the codebehind, I need to extract something from the Text (displayed) value of dropdownlist's selected item and I have  the SelectedValuand and SelectedItem in hand. How can I do this?  FindControl? Item? row?   Thanks. Well, its easier than you might think. SelectedItem has a "text" property. Thats the selected text right there :)  If you need the Text of the selection, then you have to use the SelectedItem.Text property.  If you want the value (not the displayed text) the you can directly use the SelectedValue. dim sText as String = dropdown...
