Hello sir
In my project there is two dropdown list.In first dropdown there are various state name and when I select any state in another dropdown the college name are coming of that specific state.

So my problem is that when I select state it is taking time to bring the college name in another dropdown.

Is there any way for speed up process or

any other process by which client will not be confused.

If any solution then please send me.

Thanks In Advance

I never saw such things to be slow, unless you put so many items which would make the application unusable anyway. So, the only reason I can see: you did it wrong. But please understand: we don't have access to your hard drive. So, how can we know where did you screw up?

Dear Friend,

You can take the use of delegate functionality.

If this list of values is constant(means you are not changing in DB regularly) then you can use cache. Read states and colleges in cache while application start. Read this combo list data from cache. Then it will be fast

Hello friend,

You can use update panel for this updation of one dropdownlist. and from this complete page will not load.
just put your dropdownlist in update panel and add scriptmanager on the page. and check your query also , that how much time it is taking to fetch data from database.
like :
XML
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">
        <ContentTemplate>
<asp:dropdownlist id="ddlName" runat="server" autopostback="True" onselectedindexchanged="ddlName_SelectedIndexChanged" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
                                                                <asp:listitem value="0">-Select-</asp:listitem>
                                                            </asp:dropdownlist>
<br />
<asp:dropdownlist id="ddlCollege" runat="server" autopostback="True" onselectedindexchanged="ddlCollege_SelectedIndexChanged" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
                                                                <asp:listitem value="0">-Select-</asp:listitem>
                                                            </asp:dropdownlist>

And bind it on the page on the ddlName_SelectedIndexChanged.
hope this will help you.
feel free to ask.
Dont forget to mark as answer if it helps. :)

Hello JBSAHU

If you want to spped up the process then just use Ajax.

Just drag and drop the Script Manager on your page

XML
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
</asp:ScriptManager>


For eg this is your City dropdownlist


XML
<asp:DropDownList ID="drpCity" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"
                            onselectedindexchanged="drpCity_SelectedIndexChanged" >
                        </asp:DropDownList>


And this is your College dropdownlist

XML
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel3" runat="server">
                       <ContentTemplate>
                           <asp:Dropdownlist ID="drpCollege" runat="server" Width="195px"  >
                           </asp:Dropdownlist>
                       </ContentTemplate>
                       <Triggers>
                       <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="drpCity" EventName="SelectedIndexChanged" />
                       </Triggers>
                       </asp:UpdatePanel>




This will increase the speed of your application...

You can use pure AJAX to fill dependent drop-down. Instead of making server trip use Javascript and AJAX to fill College drop-down.
