               catname = str + ">>" + catname;
           }
           if (cat_id == "0")
           {

Solution 1

Here is an example how i have done this recently:

using (SqlConnection connDB = new SqlConnection())            
using(SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter())
{
	connDB.ConnectionString = @"Server=SRV-WEB\SQLEXPRESS;Database=????;User Id=?????;Password=?????;";
	adapter.SelectCommand = connDB.CreateCommand();
	adapter.SelectCommand.CommandText = "SELECT [ConsultantID],[name] FROM [dbo].[ConsultantOptions] WHERE Enabled = 1 ORDER BY [name] ASC; ";
 
	using(DataTable data = new DataTable())
	{                    
		adapter.Fill(data);
		data.Rows.Add(new string[] { "0", "All" });
 
		DataView view = data.AsDataView();                    
		view.Sort = "name";
 
		this.cboConsultantName.DataSource = view;
		this.cboConsultantName.DataTextField = "name";
		this.cboConsultantName.DataValueField = "ConsultantID";
		this.cboConsultantName.DataBind();
		this.cboConsultantName.SelectedValue = "All";
 
	}
}

To reference the ID value I would use the following line:

this.cboConsultantName.SelectedItem.Value
