set dropdown list value

I have a dropdown list that is bound to a dataset. It has the months of the year returned from a stored procedure that executes to fill it.

I want it to default to one of these values depending on what month it is.

For instance if it's june I want it to default to june.

How do I set the default value for the dropdown list?

Hi  jlazanowski,

AFter filling the dropdown, select any value based on one of the follwoing methods....If you are displaying months in dropdown then use findbytext else the other one..

//Fill dropdwon list box here:

//Select dropdown value:
DropDownList1.Items.FindByText("text here").Selected=true;
DropDownList1.Items.FindByValue("value here").Selected = true;
