This is a repeat of a problem someone brought up WAAAY back in\nFebruary. I'm having the same problem, and wondering if anyone knows\nthe answer (or can point me to a source that might answer my question)?\n\nI'm preparing for 70-315 and I use the self-paced training kit\n(developing web applications). I'm having difficulties with the lab of\nchapter 5.\n\n....\n\nOn AddContact.aspx is ... a DropDownList (drpContactTypes) where a\ncontacttype should be chosen. This DropDownList stays empty, no matter\nwhat I try. I followed everything from the book, so it\nshould work.\n\n[Has] anyone had this problem before?
