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.
