populate a dropdownlist 'Text' & 'Value' fields

Useing Web Matric and coding in C#. I put a DropDownList on the form and bring up the Properties box and I can enter a 'Text name' and then a 'Value' item. So the list displays the name 'Leo', the 'Value' has been set to a color I use, say Green. I select Leo and and can use the value with no problems. My question is in stead of hard coding all the various 'Text' and 'Value' entries, how can I do that in code. I use : DropDownList.Items.Add(UserEnterdName.Text); (a text box) and I get the data in but it puts it in both the 'Text' and the 'Value' field. So if I enter Leo here I get Leo out which is not what I want. I want to enter Leo and the Color. Any help? Thanks.

Why 'and' not '&&' ? (was Cleaning up 'uninitialized value')
> Use: > > if (@ARGV and -T $ARGV[0]) { ... } Just wondering if there is a reason for using the lower precedence 'and' here instead of '&&'?

'do' won't 'do' if '/'
Greetings to All from Au, Have a NetWare Perl 5.8.4 and wanted to tweak File\Spec\NW.pm to try and standardise on '/' separators. If I run a test script (t/uni/lower.t) with an unmodified NW.pm, it calls t/uni/case.pl, that, in case.pl, (when the path separators are '\'), the $file is '..\lib\unicore\To\Lower.pl' and the following code portion works, with $simple getting a returned table: sub casetest { my ($base, $spec, $func) = @_; my $file = File::Spec->catfile(File::Spec->catdir(File::Spec->updir, "lib", &qu...

Cast from type ''''DBNull'''' to type ''''String'''' is not valid.
How do I avoid getting this error: Cast from type ''''DBNull'''' to type ''''String'''' is not valid. I am trying to get values from the database into a form for updating using a Datareader, SQL is set to allow nulls for certain fields as they are not required but the only way I can get the form to display is by adding a space in SQL. Is there another way around this? Check if it is equal to DBNull.Value first and if it is, don't do the cast.Stanley Tan theSpoke Blog Where in the code does it need to go?

DetailsView Converts '<' & '>' to '&lt;' & '&gt;'
I have multi-line textboxes from which the data is stored as a text value in the SQL database. Before the data is passed to the stored procedure, the text is parsed to replace all vbNewLIne and vbLf cases with "<br/>". This is done successfully, storing the text in the database with the "<br/>" tags. When the data is displayed, I want the text data dropped into the page as is; meaning "<br/>" in the database appears as "<br/>" in the source. However, the DetailsView object into which the values are being passed seems to be trans...

table_info('','','','%') cannot return any types
I was recently confirming table_info special cases and discovered the case for getting table_types cannot work. table_info('','','','%') should return a list of table types but it returns a list of empty strings instead: my @types = $h->tables('', '', '', '%'); print "all types:\n", join("xxx\n", @types), "\n"; # should output something like: # "dbo" # "INFORMATION_SCHEMA" # "sys" # and actually outputs: xxx xxx It seems to be down to the following ...
