    The C# version is at the top of the page, but it lost the screen designs that the VB version has kept.

  • Hi Karthik,

    Hope this will be helpful.  Just change the SQL query to set the fetch the data based on the drop down box "Authors" selected value like , 

    //Assuming your Author dropdown is ddlAuthor
    string value = ddlAuthor.SelectedValue;
    //Creating a new SQL command
    SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("select Bookname from tablename where Author = @author",connection);
    //Adding the author parameter
    //Assigning the author parameter value
    command.Parameters["@author"].Value = value;
    //Creating a SQLReader
    SqlDataReader drBooks = command.ExecuteReader();
    //Assigning the fetched values to Books drop down
    ddlBooks.DataSource = drBooks;
    ddlBooks.DataValueField = "Bookname";
    ddlBooks.DataTextField = "Bookname";
