Turn label of a field red when data has changed in another field

I am attempting to change the color of a font in a label to RED if the value of an adjacent field has changed.  Doesn't matter what it changed to, I just need it to turn red if the item has changed at all.  I am new to this so any help appreciated.  Maximum points awarded.  I need it urgently!

Also need to know - when the "adjacent field" changes - how does it change?  Is the adjacent field a user input field or is it databound and read-only?

Powerbuilder 9.  It is a dropdown data window field.  It is databound, yes.  It pulls lookups from another table.  It's not read only.

Hi VistarTechnologies

You need to write following code in the selected index chage event  of drop down
Also make sure the autopostback property of DropDownList1 is set to true


protected void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Label1.Style.Add("color","red");
    }
