Check this problem out:  

I have two asp:dropdownlist controls on a page.  If you select option 3 in the first drop down, then the second drop down should become disabled.  If you select anything other than option 3 in the first drop down, then the second dropdown should be (re)enabled.

It would be nice to do this client-side.  Can javascript do this?

<script language="javascript">
function CheckDropDownState(lstbox)
{
   if (lstBox.selectedIndex == 2)
   {
       document.forms[0].DropDown1.disabled = 1;
   }
   else
   {
      document.forms[0].DropDown1.disabled = 0;
   }

DropDown1.Attributes.Add("onChange","javsacript:CheckDropDownState(this);")

hi,
try
this
 'Server Side
    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
             DropDownList1.Attributes("onchange") = "ChangeDrpDown2()"
    End Sub

//Client side java script
function ChangeDrpDown2()
            {
            
                if(document.Form1["DropDownList1"].options.value==3)
                {
                  document.Form1["DropDownList2"].disabled=true;
                }
                else
                {
                 document.Form1["DropDownList2"].disabled=false;
                }
            }
