I'm making a lot of progress migrating an old iBuySpy page up to Sitefinity, but have run into a bit of a brick wall. There were a number of user controls that had menus (drop-downs, radio buttons, etc) for the purposes of pulling database data and displaying tables.
Now, I was able to get it to link to the database just fine, so now there's the connection to the SiteFinity DB and the connection to the old DB for these controls.. that part's not an issue, thankfully.
What I -am- having trouble with is the controls themselves. The parts of the menu have OnSelect commands, but selecting anything causes the entire page to refresh and all parts of the form to revert to their default values. The expected behavior is that the selected item remains as-is, and the rest of the form runs through its logic to adjust other pulldowns (such as selecting a state -> populating a drop-down of cities).
For example, a SELECT tag in one of the forms looks like this:
In its previous iBuySpy implementation, the same SELECT tag looked like this:
I'm not sure why, or if, or how, Sitefinity chose to modify this user control when it was uploaded. If anyone has any particular insight into the perils of uploading user controls, I'm all ears.
Also, if this is insuffecient information, I'm always happy to dig up more to try and get you what you need to know, so I know what I need to know! Ask away.
As always, I appreciate everyone's help here.
