ASP.Net - handling event from Dropdown inside a Repeater

Hello,
I have dropdown list inside each row of my repeater control. What I need to do is handle the event when a user changes the selected item.

I have attached my repeater code. Here is the code I use for populating the drop downs:

 
    protected void rptTable_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        {
            DataRow row = e.Item.DataItem as DataRow;
            DropDownList ddlReimbursement = e.Item.FindControl("ddlStatus") as DropDownList;

            ListItem li0 = new ListItem("No Reimbursement", "1");
            ListItem li1 = new ListItem("Partially Reimbursed", "2");
            ListItem li2 = new ListItem("Fully Reimbursed", "3");

            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li0);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li1);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li2);

            DataRowView drv = e.Item.DataItem as DataRowView;
            ddlReimbursement.SelectedValue = drv.Row.ItemArray[16].ToString();
        }
    }

Please can somebody help me or point me in the right direction for handling the dropdownList selectedIndexChanged event? Thanks


<asp:Repeater ID="rptTable" runat="server" EnableViewState="false" OnItemDataBound="rptTable_ItemDataBound" OnItemCommand="rptTable_ItemCommand">
    <HeaderTemplate>
     </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <tr>     
            <td><asp:DropDownList ID="ddlStatus" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" EnableViewState="false"></asp:DropDownList></td>
       </tr>
    </ItemTemplate>

Hi Crazyman,
I've added this to my code but seem to have something wrong as I'm getting build errors.

Error      3      A local variable named 'e' cannot be declared in this scope because it would give a different meaning to 'e', which is already used in a 'parent or current' scope to denote something

Code behind

    protected void rptTable_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        {
            DataRow row = e.Item.DataItem as DataRow;
            DropDownList ddlReimbursement = e.Item.FindControl("ddlStatus") as DropDownList;

            ListItem li0 = new ListItem("No Reimbursement", "1");
            ListItem li1 = new ListItem("Partially Reimbursed", "2");
            ListItem li2 = new ListItem("Fully Reimbursed", "3");

            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li0);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li1);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li2);

            DataRowView drv = e.Item.DataItem as DataRowView;
            ddlReimbursement.SelectedValue = drv.Row.ItemArray[16].ToString();

            ddlReimbursement.SelectedIndexChanged += delegate(object sender, EventArgs e) { };
        }
    }


    protected void ddlReimbursement_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    }


Thanks

Ah, sorry I have got it to build by renaming e and sender. That code compiles but I have added the handler and put a break point on it and it is not being hit when I select any of the dropdown items. It posts back but does not break on the SelectedIndexChanged event!!

    protected void rptTable_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        {
            //populating the drop downs
            DataRow row = e.Item.DataItem as DataRow;
            DropDownList ddlReimbursement = e.Item.FindControl("ddlStatus") as DropDownList;

            ListItem li0 = new ListItem("No Reimbursement", "1");
            ListItem li1 = new ListItem("Partially Reimbursed", "2");
            ListItem li2 = new ListItem("Fully Reimbursed", "3");

            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li0);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li1);
            ddlReimbursement.Items.Add(li2);

            //create the handler
            ddlReimbursement.SelectedIndexChanged += delegate(object sender1, EventArgs ex) { };
        }
    }

    //neither of these breakpoints are being hit :(
    protected void ddlReimbursement_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    }

    protected void ddlStatus_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    }

It wont because your using an anonymous delegate!
The code that will fire will be inside the
delegate(object sender1, EventArgs ex) { };


If you want to do it like that simply add
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlStatus" runat="server" OnSelectecIndexChanged="ddlStatus_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true" EnableViewState="false"></asp:DropDownList>

ddlReimbursement.SelectedIndexChanged += delegate(object sender1, EventArgs ex) { };
The above line should be
ddlReimbursement.SelectedIndexChanged
+=new EventHandler(ddlReimbursement_SelectedIndexChanged);
