Hi ,

I am trying to bind a drop down and checkbox with values from two tables from database. The 1st table has categories and is binded to the DDL and the 2nd table has sub categories and is binded to checkbox and inter related by using the category ID (foreign key). I am facing two issues :

1. I am unable to list the subcategories except for the 1st category. Even if i try to select any other category the dropdown automatically displays the first category and does not lists the subcategories of other categories

2. When I try to update the value selected in table I am getting the following error: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index at line no : 100

I am banging my head in gettis this fixed pls help me out

Make sure your dropdownlist does not have duplicate values, for example if you result set when you bind the sub category dropdownlist have a duplicate value, when postback is going to go back to first position because your value must be unique, verify that first and then tell us, what happened. to be more straightforward check this field M_PAGES_ID_PK when you bind the sub category dropdown.

Hi,
I am able to fix the first issue by using If Not IsPostBack in page load ...Working on the 2nd issue.....

Just double check this, I am not sure. but when you say this For i As Integer = 1 To CheckBoxList2.Items.Count I think the checkboxlist index start in 0.
