Cacading ejdropdownlist...


I'm trying to implement cascading dropdownlist like the asp.net webforms example: http://asp.syncfusion.com/demos/web/dropdownlist/cascading.aspx. I have tried using CascadeTo and OnValueSelect without success. I tried copying the sample code and placing it in a webform and didn't have any success.  I'm not sure what I'm doing incorrectly.

When using "OnValueSelect" i receive and error "Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager is undefined ".

When using "CascadeTo",  the "cascade" dropdownlist is not filtered.

I'm using VS 2010 Asp.net 4.0 webforms.

Hi Cliff,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support

Query1 :” When using "CascadeTo",  the "cascade" dropdownlist is not filtered”.

Based on your shared details we are unable to reproduce the issue when using the code from our online demo. We suspect that the issue may be caused because of the ID set in the CascadeTo property, you have to give the corresponding DropDownList’s ClientID to the CascaseTo property. Please ensure the ID given in your sample.

We have prepared cascading DropDownList sample and it is available below link:

Query 2: “When using "OnValueSelect" i receive and error "Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager is undefined ".

We are unable to reproduce this error, so kindly share us the screenshots of the corresponding error and also provide the code snippets on how you have defined OnValueSelect event in your end and where do you use Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager in your application? Provide us the details requested so that we can provide you an appropriate solution.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I noticed that the OnValueSelect dropdownlist sample project uses .net 4.5.1 and I'm guessing VS2013. I am using VS2010 .net 4.0.
I copied the html and code from default.aspx and default.aspx.cs files into a .net 4.0 project and couldn't get it to work.  Could you create a VS2010 .net 4.0 project?

Hi Cliff,

Thanks for your update.

Query 1: Could you create a VS2010 .net 4.0 project?
The sample shared in previous update uses .NET framework version 4.0 and prepared in VS2010 with Essential studio version

Query 2: I noticed that the OnValueSelect dropdownlist sample project uses .net 4.5.1 and I'm guessing VS2013
We are unable to understand your query with OnValueSelect event in the DropDownList sample that uses . NET framework 4.5.1. Since we have shared sample in VS2010 and . NET framework 4.0, which sample did you mention in here that uses 4.5.1 framework. Could you please share the details requested previously regarding the OnValueSelect error? So that we could analyze further and provide a solution.

I got this working. The dropdownlist was nested in a tab so below is the change to make it work:

I had this:

and added the text in red (ct100) to this:

Thanks for your support.

Hi Cliff,

Thanks for sharing the details with us.

You can also set “ ClientIDMode="Static" ” in the second dropdown and use the id as specified the below code,



<div class="control" style="float: left;">

            <span class="txt">Select Group</span>

            <ej:DropDownList ID="groupsList" runat="server" DataTextField="text" DataValueField="parentId" CascadeTo="countryList"




        <div class="control" style="float: right;">

            <span class="txt">Select Country</span>

            <ej:Tab ID="UserTabs" runat="server">


                    <ej:TabItem ID="item1" runat="server">


                            <ej:DropDownList ID="countryList" runat="server" Enabled="false" ClientIDMode="Static">








Kindly try the solution and let us know if this helps.
