Setting selected value of DropDownList inside a repeater control

Hi everyone,

 I am binding a repeater control to a datatable.

 I bind 3 columns from the datatable to repeater columns. With an extra column being a DropDownList.

I like on the ItemDataBound event to read a datavalue from the current record that is not displayed/bound to the repeater control (call it column4) and once I read that value I like to set the selected value of the dropDownList Control


Many thanks in advance

 Well what you should do is find your item every time you want to read from the drop down list.
 So what basically happens is : you search for your item -  get the value.

hint : yourdatatableid.FindControl("yourddlid") or yourdatatableid.items[i].FindControl("yourddlid")    // it depends on your datatable, the items, and how you set it and how/when do u want to look for your item

Set the property of a server control inside a user control inside a Master Page
How do you set the property(ForeColor) of a server control(lnkInquiryReport2) located in a user control (LeftNavMain1) within a Master Page (default.master)?
