.NET 2.0 dropdownlist objectdatasource selectedvalue

Hi,

I have a dropdownlist which is filled by a objectdatasource (objectdatasourceid = "objectdatasourcedistrict"). This works, but I can't seem to get a selectedvalue until the dropdownlist is actually selected.

I think that the way it was done before, you could get a selectedvalue before the dropdownlist was actually selected. Can anyone tell me how I can get the first value that it is set to before the page postsback? I've tried .items.count, etc. and it all fails.

Thanks

Here you go. The below prints nothing until the page has posted back for the first time, but how do I get a hold of the value on the if not ispostback? The dropdownlist is full, but no value until postback...

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
response.write(ddlDistrict.selectedvalue)
end sub

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlDistrict"  DataSourceID="ObjectDataSourceDistrict" runat="server" DataValueField="intDistrictcd"  AutoPostBack="True" >

<asp:ObjectDataSource id="ObjectDataSourceDistrict" runat="server" SelectMethod="getUserDistricts" TypeName="BusinessLayer.UserRole" OldValuesParameterFormatString="original_{0}">
            <SelectParameters>
                <asp:Parameter Name="strAppName" Type="String" DefaultValue="INFRA" />
                <asp:SessionParameter Name="intObjectID" Type="Int32" SessionField="sesintObjectUserID"/>
               <asp:SessionParameter Name="intExecObjectID" Type="Int32" SessionField="sesintObjectUserID"/>
                <asp:Parameter Name="strSiteTypeCD" Type="String" DefaultValue="DO" />
            </SelectParameters>
        </asp:ObjectDataSource>
