Making DropDownlist Selected Automatically on giving value

s if there eexists one Drop downlist

and  if it have values from dataset say Ds

and that dataset ds is having a table named Ab with 2 columns a)TextData  b) ValueData

so we will set our data set like this


so we will set dropdownlist as

DropDownList.DataSource() = Ds1.Tables(0)
DropDownList.DataValueField = "ValueData";
DropDownList.DataTextField = "TextData";


so now Drop down list have TExt and value

so i have to select and show TextData dropdownlist automatically on passing its Textvalue

we can do it using

 clipboard | view source | convert again

string i = Ds.Tables(0).Rows(0)("ValueData").ToString();
DropDownList.Items.FindByValue(i).Selected = true
This is the method of selecting datagrid using its value at runtime
