I am creating webaprt in VS 2010 with C# code. In my webpart there is FormView control and it always remain in Insert mode. In Insert mode there is DropDown Control and SharePoint DateTime Control. I have writen some code on SharePoint DateTime Control DateChanged event.
And DateTime control is autopostback.
Now Issue when DateChange event is fired and autopost back is done It should send selected Date from DateTime Control and also send selected value from DropDown. But when DateTime Autoback is done DropDown is sending First Item Value rather to selected one.
Following is my code. Kindly somebody can help me.
protected void dtStartDate_DateChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
DateTimeControl dtStartDate = (DateTimeControl)fvLeaveForm.FindControl("dtStartDate");
DropDownList dpLeaveType = (DropDownList)fvLeaveForm.FindControl("dpLeaveType");
if (dtStartDate.SelectedDate != null)
Label lblLeaveBalance = (Label)fvLeaveForm.FindControl("lblLeaveBalance");
lblLeaveBalance.Text = LeaveBalance(dtStartDate.SelectedDate,dpLeaveType.SelectedValue);

How do you DataBind the DropDownList?

Try to remove the DataBind() line for fvLeaveForm in at the first line of DataChanged event.

How do you bind FormView? If you bind it with custom data source in code, then add postback checking block around it.

No I am binding it with SQL Data Source. I forget to tell you I am using Oracle as Database and Odp.net.
And frustrating is that if I use without formview then it will preserve value on all postback.

So, if you put the DropDownList outside the FormView, that works? Hmmmmm, I remember ListView having that problem in 4.0. What version of .NET are you using?

Yea I amusing .Net 3.5

Too bad I can't try SharePoint myself. The DateTimeControl does seem suspect.
What you could do to debug this is handle the DataBinding event of the DropDownList. Put a breakpoint in it, and use the debugger to see if it gets DataBound when the DataTimeControl.DateChanged fires. The DataBind that was originally in there was definitely
a suspect. See if there is another.
If the DropDownList is DataBinding again, see if the stack trace reveals what line of code does that.

Well My SharePoint DateTime Control is also working very good. As I remove FormView and all working as expected. So I have no option, so I work like classic asp i.e. without formview and it is working very good. frustrating...........
