Get value from combo box

Hi all,

I am not sure why this is not working but i have two combo boxes.
When i select a value from the 1st combo box i would like the second combo to get populated based on what is in the 1st combo box.

the problem that i am having is that i cannot get the value from the first combo box when i click on the second combo box.

I tried using the FindControl function to get the value but its not working.
I am using C# , VS 2010

Any suggestions?


Thanks

Are you using ASP.NET? if so, you want a cascading drop down list. See this article: http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/AjaxControlToolkitSampleSite/CascadingDropDown/CascadingDropDown.aspx

or is just like this one:
private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            comboBox2.SelectedItem = comboBox1.SelectedItem;
        }

        private void comboBox2_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            comboBox1.SelectedItem = comboBox2.SelectedItem;
        }
