Validator Combo Box ASP.NET

Hi,

I have a combo box on my ASP.NET page.  The first entry is "Please Select" with a value of 0.

I want to put a client side validator on the page that will force the user to select a value other than please select.  I have other validators against text boxes so need the warning to appear as if it was a standard ASP.NEt validator.

thanks

if(document.getElementById('<%=combobox.ClientID%>' ).selectedIndex == 0)
{
alert("Please select any option");
document.getElementById("<%=ddlDrop.ClientID%>").f ocus();
return false;
}
put this code in a javascript function & call that javascript function on the click click of button or the lost focus event of combobox

Do you need to pass anything into the Java script function?
