I have a drop down list in a datagrid, when the user selects a value, and the grid is rebinded I lose the value selected.

Would like to know How to keep the value of the dropdown that the user selected.
I am also using AJAX and the datagrid is inside an update panel

Hi

Check whether the AutoPostBack is set. It should be false

Hi,

   Then, you need to check you BindGrid code.

It should be in
    If Not Page.IsPOstBak then
      'bind grid
    End if

You need to save the selection before you rebind the grid.

Codecruiser, I have pasted my datagrid set up, I have an itemDatbound which binds the dropdown list with the values I get from the db.

My issue is how to save the changed values on the dropdown.
I cannot triger an OnSelectedIndex change on the dropdown since it is embedded in the grid, can I ?
