Like in title. After the page validation dropdownlist look like lost connection with some columns from table:
This is the code:

<ej:DropDownList ID="ddlRegimen" runat="server" Width="100%" WatermarkText="Regimen" DataSourceID="SqlDataRegim" DataTextField="RegimenName" DataValueField="RegimenId"></ej:DropDownList>

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataRegim" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:dbhlpConnString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [RegimenId], [RegimenName] FROM [Regimen]"></asp:SqlDataSource>

<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator11" runat="server" ForeColor="Red" Font-Size="12px" ErrorMessage="Select regimen for this person" InitialValue="" ControlToValidate="ddlRegimen" Display="Dynamic"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

if (!IsPostBack)


SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select [CountryId], [CountryName] from [Country]", conn);

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();
