OK, this should be simple enough but I can't seem to solve it. I need to programmatically set the selected item of a dropdownlist control if I know the value. I understand I can use DropDownList1.Items.FindByValue("1") to return the ListItem itself. What I need to do is make sure that is the selected item. Can anyone help?
