I need to add a default item to all my dropdown lists, but I dont want to have to put it in the database where I load the dropdownlist from. how can I add a default item at the top of the list for them to Pick an Item from List, itstead of showing first thing from the dtabase.
How I load the DropDownList then I call the void from within another load statement
protected void FillDDl()
sql = "select intPlanId, strFuturePlan from ESGRFuturePlan where bitActive = 1 Order by strFuturePlan";
ddlFuturePlan.DataTextField = "strFuturePlan";
ddlFuturePlan.DataValueField = "intPlanId";
ddlFuturePlan.DataSource = c.GetReader(sql);
To that list that Loads I need to add an Item such as
"Pick and Item from List" and give it a value of zero so that I can validate agianst it.
I then call FillDll() in my Load Person statement.
