Dropdownlist Event not Triggering

Dovberman asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have a dropdown list that is sometimes populated by only one row.
I need to initialize a procedure by simply clicking on the single row.
OnSelectedIndexChanged does not work because the index is not changed.
OnSelectedIndexChanged does work when there are mulltiple rows.

Is there a way to trigger a procedure when there is only one row?

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlTopics" runat="server"
                    DataTextField="TopicDescr" DataValueField="TopicID"
