Get Value OnChange

I have a dropdown that i set a dynamic id, onChange i want to get the value of the dropdown dynamic id.

I want to dynamically add the on change attribute to something like:

mydropdownlist.attributes.add("OnChange",'GetMyValuefortheDynamicID')




Dynamic id for dropdown: id can be any number given to it
 
<asp:dropdownlist runat="server" id="12345">
<listitem>a</listitem>
<listitem>b</listitem>
<listitem>c</listitem>
</asp:dropdownlist>

I don't know asp but why don't you output the onChange event as an attribute of the select from the server where you generate the html for the select?
