As a forum poster, you don't have drafts... but people posting videos/blog entries do... and in C9v4 they are all the same entity so the services reflect that...
Any more info on c9v4?

You can't have a true WinForms-style ComboBox in WebForms simply because there isn't any HTML equivalent. As you've noticed the closest you can get are client-side scripts, which of course will fail if client scripting is disabled.
In your situation I'd just put together a <select /> with all the predefined options but add an "Other, please specify" option. The <select /> would then have an <input type="text" /> underneath it with a <label> reading "Other:".
It's usable and proven and can't go wrong. Don't forget to add <asp:RequiredFieldValidator /> to the Other field.
Thanks for the reply.... I thought that this may be the case... Only wish I was told that this was requirement as I have 20 plus forms to go and change now.
ANy suggestions for handling the back button? So another record doesn't get insert....
In a DropDownList the user cannot enter their own values.
That is corredt which is why I've looked at the AJAX Combo Box ontrol which works for data entry but not for editing... I was after a control suggestions or a suggested method of using one of the standard controls.
I want to see like a beginners course in development. Talking about when to use linq or when to use the entity framework, MCV 2 why? When to use a technology and when not to use technology. For the lone hobbyist developer who is self-taught but has many many questions and gaps in their knowledge.
I want an drop down list bo on a form which a user can either select th values presented to them or enter there own.
So for an example a how many? drop down displays 1-10 but the user can enter 12. I want the users reply databound but not the collection?

Yes the form is bound to a database.

can you post a code sample, there are loads of web experts here on channel 9?
But all I'm doing is dragging on a formview control and connecting directly to SQL Server.
When you run the form, in insert mode. When a checkbox is checked, I want to run code, this what I can't get working.
Thanks for helping.
