I'll work in 1 web site. And in it dropdown list is there and all items are selected in dropdown list but 3 items are not taken. Means display in dropdown but when we choose that item not display in dropdown list. What is the problem??

Thans to all....

I think this error is not coding error. It's a type of some laptop error or any other.

This is cs file.

public partial class category : System.Web.UI.Page
SqlConnection con;
SqlCommand cmd;
SqlDataReader dr;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (Session["setEmail"] == null)

con = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True");

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select * from category1", con);
dr = cmd.ExecuteReader();


dropcate.Items.Add (new ListItem(dr[1].ToString(),dr[0].ToString()));



This is aspx file.


        <asp:Label ID="lblcate" runat="server" Text="Category"></asp:Label>
        <br />
         <br />

       <asp:DropDownList ID="dropcate" runat="server"
         <br />
         <br />

How do you populate the dropdown?
Is it a query? Check if this is working correctly.
