    Does anyone one why this line is preventing the edit form from displaying when I click "add new record"? The edit form displays normally when I click edit on a row.

    <asp:DropDownList ID="lst_ProjectCode" class="form-control" runat="server" Width="250" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataValueField="ProjectCode" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("ProjectCode")%>'></asp:DropDownList>

    It is something to do with the SelectedValue='<%# Bind("ProjectCode")%>' as otherwise it the edit form comes up.

    Hi Max,

    The reason for reeving an exception is that the value of the ProjectCode field is null. What I can suggest you is to predefined a value when init insert command is fired. You can find more information on the matter in the following help article.

    Do you need help with upgrading your ASP.NET AJAX, WPF or WinForms projects? Check the Telerik API Analyzer and share your thoughts.
