Hello,

When I select a row from cmbDonor, the value selected is not registered, for example when I try to see the value selected in a meaasge box with the code below, I get the value of the first row, even when I set the Auto postback property to True.
 MsgBox(CmbDonor.SelectedItem.ToString) Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,

Victor

Hi

Please make sure that the loading of dropdownlist is written inside (if ( !IsPostback)) in the page load method. Else whenever a selection is made, it will load the dropdown contents again and the first item will be shown in the message box.

AT First are you reBinding the DropDownList in PostBack.

Fill the DDL in !(Page.IsPostBack) and at the end of your Page_Load get CmbDonor.SelectedValue ,

there shouldnt be a problem...
If this didnt help try to post part of your code.

is the list being reset when you post back due to code in the page load event not checking for postback=true?
