This is my asp code


<tr class="footer" runat="server">

    <td colspan="4" runat="server">* By WWW.Play.org

       <asp:DropDownList AutoPostBack="true" runat="server" ID="callDispositionSelector" OnSelectedIndexChanged="callDispositionChanged">

           <asp:ListItem Value="-1">Select Disposition Reason</asp:ListItem>

           <asp:ListItem Value="1">Reservation</asp:ListItem>

           <asp:ListItem Value="2">Change of Reservation</asp:ListItem>

           <asp:ListItem Value="3">Cancellation</asp:ListItem>

           <asp:ListItem Value="4">Wait List</asp:ListItem>

           <asp:ListItem Value="5">Other</asp:ListItem>




In code behind, I am not able to type this callDispositionSelector. In other words, visual studio doesn't recognize that id.

Hi tanuj, 

try this:

protected void lst_ItemDataBound(object sender, ListViewItemEventArgs e)


       if (e.Item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.DataItem)


            DropDownList ddl= (DropDownList)e.Item.FindControl("callDispositionSelector");
