I have a page where this dropdownlist is hidden ddlDepartamento
 but elsewhere in the code asks for this combo as follows
If ddlDepartamento.SelectedItem.Value.Equals("%") Then
 therefore I have this error:
 Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
 as I can ask for a dropdownlist that is not visible in the html

Hi,
when you make control Visible="false" then it is not rendered in output, you can use css style hidden as
style="display:none"
Hope it will help
Thanks

I think you are using vb.net then use
ddlDepartamento.SelectedItem<>Nothing
or
ddlDepartamento.SelectedIndex>0
