I hope I have what is a simple question, but the answer is eluding me at the moment.
Background: I have a table where data gets imported into. Each import is labeled, in a column so that import batches are kept together.
I have a View with a DropdownList that gets populated with a DISTINCT list of those import labels.
What I want to have happen is the grid would initially be empty. The user will select a label from the dropdownlist, which should then tell the grid to read the data from the database where it matches the UploadLabel selected by the user.
I know I have to create my Grid to that AutoBind is false. But how do I tell the grid to fetch the appropriate data? I know I can call the Grid's DataSource.Read method, but where or how do I tell it which data to retrieve? I don't want to do it client side because the import database is very, very, very large. This is why I want to only return the data corresponding to a specific UploadLabel.
