I have a dropdown list control and an asp hyperlink. I want to be able to pass the selected value of the dropdown in the hyperlink when the user clicks the link. Have tried the following but to no avail...
int pid = Convert.ToInt32(ddlpartno.SelectedItem.Value);
lnkpartdetail.NavigateUrl = "~/production/pn_detail.aspx?partnoid_i=(pid)"

int pid = Convert.ToInt32(ddlpartno.SelectedItem.Value);
lnkpartdetail.NavigateUrl = "~/production/pn_detail.aspx?partnoid_i=" & pid

OR

int pid = Convert.ToInt32(ddlpartno.SelectedItem.Value);
lnkpartdetail.NavigateUrl = "~/production/pn_detail.aspx?partnoid_i=(" & pid & ")"

Hi jazzcatone,
A little bit of modification for pratima_mcs proposed if you're running under code-behind. It should be "+" sign instead of "&" sign during append the string in c# environment.
eg:
int pid = Convert.ToInt32(ddlpartno.SelectedItem.Value);
lnkpartdetail.NavigateUrl = "~/production/pn_detail.aspx?partnoid_i=" + pid;

If you're running under client script, try this alternative solution:

page_load event
============
if(!IsPostBack){
  lnkpartdetail.attributes.add("onClick","javascript:NavigateURL('~/production/pn_detail.aspx?partnoid_i=') ;return false;");
}

<script>
function NavigateURL(strURL){
 var objDrp=document.getElementById('<%= ddlpartno.ClientId%>');

 if(objDrp.selectedIndex>0){
    location.href=strURL + objDrp.value;
 }
}
</script>
