    DropDownList Validation not working inside Gridview

    I have a dropdownlist inside a gridview,the drop list should populate from database and default value should be SELECT.

    when i Click Save button it should check all the dropdownlist values. If any one is still SELECT it should prompt error select any values.
    When i normaly check without inside gridview it works fine and not inside gridview.

    I have attached my codings below.

    Help in this regard.

    Hi Syed,

    What I understand is, without grid value it is prompting error message and with the grid data value even it was in Select it is not working? Because I don't find the attachment of the coding.

    I feel like when datagrid is loaded. It is taking the first value of the loaded grid.
    we can perform two ways to find this.

    #Pass the Select string along with the Datagrid values I mean pass it from the Backend instead of hardcoding in front end.

    #To understand what is happening give a alert message with the values of that text box.. check whether you are really get the "Select" string when the data grid is loaded.

    Hi Syed,

    Did you give proper validation?
    Have a javascriptvalidation function and call it, Refer the below.. It may give you an idea

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function gridviewDropdownValidations() {
    var temp= true;
    var gridviewDrpdowns = new Array();
    var gridview = document.getElementById('<%=gridview.ClientID %>');
    for (var x = 0; i < dropdowns.length; x++) {
    if (gridviewDrpdowns .item(i).value == '0') //loop through each dropdown to check the selected value
    temp= false;
    if (!temp) {
    alert('Give your alert message');
    return temp;

    Never lose hope..You never know what tomorrow will bring
