I inserted a data view webpart on the page with list as source..now I wanted to filter the items ..I can do this successfully using the query string but when I try to do it with a control on the page ..eg

I have a dropdownlist on the page and I drop a data view webpart on the page and then I go to filter and create a new parameter and set the source as control with the id of the dropdownlist ..but it does not work

Is there some thing I am doing wrong here.
