I have an Asp.net page with several DropDownLists.
When the user selects an item from the list, it redirects him to another page.
If the user clicks the browser's back button, the item is still selected in the DropDownList.
How do I make it so that when he goes back to that page, the DropDownList is reset?

try to add that to your aspx page that has the drop down on it:

<meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1">

I tried that, but it gives me a "Content is not supported outside 'script' or 'asp:content' regions.
I also tried putting it here:

<asp:Content ID="Content3" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="head">

<meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1" />

<style type="text/css">
a {font-family:Arial;}
.....
 
... but it didn't work. No error messages. But it didn't work at run time.
 
Thanks,
Rick
