DropdownList Does not remember value

I've got a dropdownlist that is initialised like this:

 
private void getContactTypeList ()
	{
		ArrayList ContactArrayList = new ArrayList ();
		ContactArrayList.Add ("Email");
		ContactArrayList.Add ("Telephone");
		ddContact.DataSource = ContactArrayList;
		ddContact.DataBind ();
	}

Open in new window


The front end looks like this:

 
<asp:DropDownList                       
                        ID="ddContact"
                        runat="server"/>

Open in new window


When the form it is within is posted, the drop down does not remember its previous setting if it does not validate, how can I get it to remember its state?

You should bind the dropdownlist item on page_load like this..

 

if (!IsPostBack)
{
//page loads first time
// Bind the dropdownlist here
}
else
{
// when the page loads second or more time execute code here
}
