I am using vb.net 2.0 and I need to find the the # of rows in a datagrid? Currently I am using:

var ddl = document.getElementById('dgTopicSelection').id;
alert(ddl.lentgh);

but it's giving me the wrong number. Thanks in advance.

I have a drop down in my datagrid and I am running a for loop to find the value of each drop down in each row of the datagrid. I am them collecting the values in a variable and passing it onto the server for processing. Hope this helps.

you can use something like this to iterate through the rows in vb.net,

For Each item as DataGridItem in gridMain.Items
' do stuff
dim ddlcomponent as DropDownList = ctype(item.FindControl("ddlComponent"),(DropDownList))

in the iteration first check on this
if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)

This is what I was looking for:

document.getElementById('dgTopicSelection').rows.length;
