Hello Experts,

I have a screen with 2 autopostback dropdownlists and a textarea. second dropdownlist is only display when select the item from the first dropdownlist.
once the second dropdownlist is selected, the appopriate data will display in textarea from database.
I have place the code(bind the data from database in textarea) in page postback's section in page load.
Now i display the data according to my request, but the problem is when i want to edit the data in textarea, because of the postback function that always call data from database, so i cant update the latest data into database.
May i know how to solve this?

One way is take the value put them inside request or session object and get it back else use Ajax to render the dropdown values. By Ajax you can avoid re rendering of a page.

Don't bind the text area in page_load, bind it in the dropdownlist2_selectedindexchanged event
