Debug it.. Using debugger check the value of entity.
case 'inkjet': is wrong, case "inkject" is the correct format..

checked value is coming

entity = DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text;
After this line write a simple "IF" block to check that value is in correct format or not. Or write a code like

var abcd = entity=="inkjet"?true:false;

And check the value of abcd

After reading selected item. use trim function and check the two strings are same or use StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase .

1 solution

entity = DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text.trim();

Try this ..
