Hi, there. I am new in .Net and am seeking urgent help, please.
I need to control the display in the data grid according to the selection in the dropdown list. how can I do that??

the easiest way to do this would be to create a new fill method for the DataTable that controls your datagrid. In this fill method set a user defined variable. Then you can use the selected Value from your ComboBox to select that defined variable. Then it is just a matter of refreshing and you are set.

hope this helps but in case it doesn't it is probably a good idea to post a sample of the code so it might be easier to help you.

Here's my code , please i do need help

myda = New SqlDataAdapter("Select Distinct COUNTRY from FO_TestingLines_TBL order by COUNTRY", ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("myconnection"))
ds = New DataSet()
myda.Fill(ds, "AllTables")
OPERATOR.Visible = True
COUNTRY.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
COUNTRY.DataTextField = ds.Tables(0).Columns("COUNTRY").ColumnName.ToString()
COUNTRY.DataValueField = ds.Tables(0).Columns("COUNTRY").ColumnName.ToString()
COUNTRY.DataBind()
COUNTRY.Items.Insert(0, "<--Select a Country-->")
Session("testing") = "FO_TestingLines_TBL"

End Sub
Public Sub Country_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
myda3 = New SqlDataAdapter("Select DISTINCT OPERATOR from " & Session("testing") & " where COUNTRY ='" & COUNTRY.SelectedItem.Value & "' order by OPERATOR", ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("myconnection"))

myda3.Fill(ds3, "Tables")
OPERATOR.DataSource = ds3.Tables(0)
OPERATOR.DataTextField = ds3.Tables(0).Columns("OPERATOR").ColumnName.ToString()
OPERATOR.DataValueField = ds3.Tables(0).Columns("OPERATOR").ColumnName.ToString()
