Hello Experts,

I need to assign a method to the 'SelectedIndexChanged' event of a drop down list programmatically.  How do I accomplish this?  It's simple enough to assign this property from an aspx page, but I am creating the control in code and need to assign the method in the code behind.

Any help is appreciated.

ddlList

MethodToFireOnSelectedIndexChange()

In the aspx page for ddllist attach the event , OnSelectedIndexChanged="MethodToFireOnSelectedIndexChange"
Remember to set the property autopostback=true for the dropdown.
In the aspx.cs page write
 protected void MethodToFireOnSelectedIndexChange(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

}

Before adding the control you need add the event handler, follow the code below
   protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

        // Create dropdown List

        DropDownList ddlYear = new DropDownList();

        ddlYear.ID = "ddlYear";
 

        // Add Items

        ListItem li = new ListItem("2008", "2008");

        ddlYear.Items.Add(li);

        li = new ListItem("2009", "2009");

        ddlYear.Items.Add(li);
 

        ddlYear.AutoPostBack = true;
 

        // Add event handler

        ddlYear.SelectedIndexChanged += new EventHandler(ddl_SelectedIndexChanged);
 

        // Add the control to the form

        this.FindControl("form1").Controls.Add(ddlYear);

    }
 

    void ddl_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

        DropDownList ddlSelected = (DropDownList)sender;

        tb1.Text = ddlSelected.SelectedItem.Value;

    }
 
 

<body>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

        <asp:TextBox ID="tb1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

    </form>

</body>
