I want to display data in details view control. Data will be the list of products ordered by the customer. I have created stored procedure to get this list and it works perfect. But on the web page, the list is not displayed, view is blank.
Since the product list belongs to the user who is currently logged in, I have taken Session as the 'Parameter source' and Session Field as'User.Identity.Name' for the details view control. Are these values wrong?

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
        style="z-index: 1; left: 338px; top: 222px; position: absolute; height: 121px; width: 175px">
            <asp:BoundField DataField="textDesc" HeaderText="textDesc" 
                SortExpression="textDesc" />
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource2" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:MYDataBaseConnectionString %>" 
        SelectCommand="VIEW_MY_ORDER" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
            <asp:SessionParameter Name="CLIENT" SessionField="User.Identity.Name" 
                Type="String" />

SQL query is producing correct results,I think the problem is in the above code

It would be difficult until you share related code snippet.

Kindly see the updated part.

@Marcus Kramer: I am not able to view your answer, but after seeing my email notification, I rechecked the table. I do have a field textDesc with data type varchar(MAX)

User.Identity.Name is not a SessionField. A session field is any field where you did something like Session["fieldName"] = User.Identity.Name. So, store User.Identity.Name into a SessionField, maybe called UserName and then change your session parameter to come from UserName.

Session["UserName"] = User.Identity.Name;

If I use Session["UserName"] = User.Identity.Name;, then How do I set the parameter source in the wizard? The options to be selected are:None, cookie, Form, control profile, QueryString, Session, Route Data.

In your C# code, after validating that the user has logged in, you will fill in the session variable with User.Identity.Name. In the Wizard just choose Session and then type in UserName.

I did as you told. In my validate_user(), I have
Session["UserName"] = User.Identity.Name;

and in the aspx file, I have:
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:MYDataBaseConnectionStringConnectionString %>"
SelectCommand="VIEW_MY_ORDER" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
<asp:SessionParameter Name="CLIENT" SessionField="UserName" />

But still, no results being displayed :(
In my stored prosedure, I am just selecting the results, not returning them. Does this thing making the mistake?

Selecting them does return them. I would implement the DataBinding event on the SQLDataSource. You can then look at the actual SQL command getting sent to SQL or just do a SQL trace. Also, Anonymous access needs to be turned off in IIS or else User.Identity.Name will be blank. Did you put a breakpoint and make sure that Session["UserName"] is getting filled in properly?
