hi ,
I'm beginger in C# and I wnat to get the user selection from the dropDawnList and show what he select in the dataList
This is what in my dataList all the field in the datalist are set visible to false except for [LinkButton1Title]
 [isbnLabel][authorLabel][publishDateLabel][descriptionLabel][priceLabel][stockLabel][imageNameLabel][categoryLabel][LinkButton1Title]
in my dropDawnList there are the category of the book general , fantasy , sci-fi
when the user select general only the book in category general should show in the dataList
or if he/she select sci-fi only the book in category sci-fi should show in the dataList
can you explain how can I do this in Visual studio C#

how are you loading the datalist?
