I've added 2 ASPX dropdownlists to a blank page in Ironspeed. I wish to populate these lists with 2 unrelated tables for a user to select from. However when I go to the source option in the properties section, it is greyed out? How do I add the record sources? Thanks Aaron

I believe you will need to add a SqlDataSource object for each of these dropdowns and set the datasource properties for your SqlDataSource objects then tie your dropdowns to these datasource objects. I am assuming you have done a Rebuild All after adding your ASPX dropdowns to the page already. Best Regards, Michael __________________ firstname.lastname@example.org

If you drop dropdown list to a page, you will not be able to configure data source because code needed for a datasource is generated in the control file.
What you can do if the following: Drop Add record Entry from from the table you want your dropdown list populated and change control type to dropdown list for this field. Than drag and drop another aspx dropdown list and edit datasource on the datasource tab. Delete unneeded fields.
