Populate (Fill) Dropdownlist from Database in Asp.Net using C#, VB.NET

Apr 30, 2015
Introduction:

Here I will explain how to populate or fill or load data in dropdownlist from database in asp.net using C#.net and VB.NET.

Description:

In previous posts I explained many articles relating asp.net, jQuery, SQL Server, JavaScript. Now I will explain how to fill or populate data in dropdownlist from database in asp.net using C#.net and VB.NET.

Before implement this example first design one table UserInformation in your database as shown below

Column Name
Data Type
Allow Nulls
UserId
Int (set Identity=true)
No
UserName
varchar(50)
Yes
Location
Varchar(50)
Yes
Once table designed in database write the following code in your aspx page


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
<title>how to show data in dropdownlist from database in asp.net</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<b>Selected UserName:</b>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCountry" runat="server" />
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
Now add the following namespaces in code behind

C# Code


using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
After add namespaces write the following code in code behind


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (!IsPostBack)
{
BindContrydropdown();
}
}
/// <summary>
/// Bind COuntrydropdown
/// </summary>
protected void BindContrydropdown()
{
//conenction path for database
using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB"))
{
con.Open();
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select UserId,UserName FROM UserInformation", con);
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.Fill(ds);
ddlCountry.DataSource = ds;
ddlCountry.DataTextField = "UserName";
ddlCountry.DataValueField = "UserId";
ddlCountry.DataBind();
ddlCountry.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--", "0"));
con.Close();
}
}
VB.NET Code


Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Partial Class VBSample
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
If Not IsPostBack Then
BindContrydropdown()
End If
End Sub
''' <summary>
''' Bind COuntrydropdown
''' </summary>
Protected Sub BindContrydropdown()
'conenction path for database
Using con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB")
con.Open()
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("Select UserId,UserName FROM UserInformation", con)
Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
Dim ds As New DataSet()
da.Fill(ds)
ddlCountry.DataSource = ds
ddlCountry.DataTextField = "UserName"
ddlCountry.DataValueField = "UserId"
ddlCountry.DataBind()
ddlCountry.Items.Insert(0, New ListItem("--Select--", "0"))
con.Close()
End Using
End Sub
End Class
