How to change Accordion Pane Header Titles Dynamically

I have a listbox of names in an AJAX Accordion Pane. The first pane's title is "SELECT EMPLOYEE". When they select an employee, i would like to change the title of that pane to listbox1.selectedvalue.tostring.
AccordionPane2.Page.Title = ListBox1.SelectedValue.ToString doesn't seem to work!

Hi,

Problem is, the accordion pane does not have a title element. What You are accessing in your code is actually the System.Web.UI.Page.Title element, which makes no sence. What You need to do is to add a label for instance to the header template container of the accordion pane and reference that label and update it's text property from code behind in your ListBox.SelectedIndexChanged event. Please refer to the attached code snippet for a working example.
