Undefined Value in cascading dropdownlist

I have two dropdownlist, one with letter of buildings and second with number of rooms

I create two data tables like in example :

//Display letter of buildings

public DataTable MyBuilding()


string connection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;

string cmd = "select Building from Apartaments group by Building";

SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd, connection);

DataTable dt = new DataTable();


return dt;


//Display room s in building

public DataTable MyRoom(string build)


string connection2 = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["Intra2016ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;

string cmd2 = "select NoRoom, ApartId from Apartaments where Building = @Buildi";

SqlDataAdapter sda2 = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd2, connection2);

sda2.SelectCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("Buildi", build);

DataTable dt = new DataTable();


return dt;

//And COde to execute

protected void ejddl1_ValueSelect(object sender, Syncfusion.JavaScript.Web.DropdownListEventArgs e)

ejddl2.DataSource =
string ejmb = e.SelectedText;
ejddl2.DataSource = MyRoom(ejmb);



With asp controls I don´t have any problem.

Run application and do first selection in building dropdownlist every is ok I see rooms corresponding to this building, but changing selection, in room ddl all value display like undefined. I’m testing different option – included sql direct  result is every time the same.

I'm testing binding data to dropdownlist like below:

Intra2016Entities db = new Intra2016Entities();

List<Apartaments> Apart = new List<Apartaments>();

Apart = db.Apartaments.Where(d => d.Building == e.Text).ToList(); // I testing with differents values - e.Value; e.SelectedText ..etc

ejddl2.DataSource = Apart;

and look value from selected events and that what I see everything is ok:


but result in room ddl is the same - undefined value
