Is this you are looking for ?
Rajkumar GsSoftware EngineerCommented:
If yes, remember to enable AutoPostBack property of Dropdownlist. and write code in SelectedIndexChanged event as shown above.

You can also use jquery something like so to get the value:

var selected = $("#dropdownidhere option:selected").text();

and to set the label:

$('#<%= labelidhere.ClientID %>').text(selected);

something like so:
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
var selected = $("#dropdownidhere option:selected").text();
            if(selected != "") 
             $('#<%= labelidhere.ClientID %>').text(selected);
