Is is possible to call a Databind from a child popup page (using C#).  I need to repopulate a dropdown on a parent page without refreshing the whole page.

Are you using ajax at all?

If so just put the dropdown in it's own update panel (can be nested)

And call the update for that update panel.

Worked like a charm!  I had thought of doing something similar but wasn't quite sure how to implement it.  Thanks!
