Hi Guys,

I have a checkboxlist and a function to update the checkboxlist which are found inside of an updatepanel. The update button calls a function which deletes values from a table and uses a sqlbulkcopy to map a the boxes chosen to a sql table. I've stepped through the debugger and have noticed that my delete query works, but when I try and map columns from the datatable created in code behind to the sql table, I find that the datatable created in code behind is actually empty. Please help!

My Markup looks like this:

<asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="upnl" UpdateMode="Always" >
                <asp:RadioButtonList runat="server" ID="rbl" RepeatColumns="3" AutoPostBack="true" Width="900px" /><br />
                <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="Tree" Visible="false">
                    <a href="#" id="SelectAll">Select</a> -
                    <a href="#" id="DeselectAll">Deselect</a>&nbsp&nbsp

                    <asp:Button runat="server" ID="SaveIt" Text="Save" OnClick="SaveIt_OnClick" /> <asp:Button ID="Drop" runat="server" Text="Toggle" />

                    <br />
                    <asp:Panel id="Panel" runat="server" style="display:none;">
                        <asp:CheckBoxList ID="Cbl" runat="server" RepeatColumns="3" /><br />
                        <asp:Button ID="Btn_Submit" Text="Update" runat="server" OnClick="Submit_Click" /><br />       

                    <div id="ItsATree" >
                        <br />
                        <ul runat="server" id="TreeLeaf">
                    <br />

And the Code Behind function which is supposed to update the values selected in the cbl into the DB looks like this:

protected void Submit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            String Id = rbl.SelectedValue;

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add("UpdateTID", typeof(String));
            dt.Columns.Add("UpFID", typeof(String));

            foreach (ListItem li in Cbl.Items)
                if (li.Selected == true)
                    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
                    dr["UpdateTID"] = Id; 
                    dr["UpdateFID"] = Convert.ToString(li.Value);

            using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(constr))
                SqlCommand sc = connection.CreateCommand();
                sc.CommandText = "DELETE FROM myTable WHERE ID = @id";
                sc.Parameters.AddWithValue("@id", Id);

                using (SqlBulkCopy sbc = new SqlBulkCopy(connection))
                    sbc.ColumnMappings.Add("UpdateTID", "TID");
                    sbc.ColumnMappings.Add("UpFID", "FID");
                    sbc.DestinationTableName = "myTable";

So when "Btn_Submit" is clicked, its fires off "Submit_Click." When stepping through the code of this function; the delete statement executes but when it comes time to write "sbc" over to the sql table the "dt" table contains no rows.

Thanks for your time and help.

Use on selectedIndexChange to call function.
