Dropdown property is not set correctly in ASP.NET page

The Visible property of a drop-down box is not set correctly in the following line of code:
drpRootCauses.Visible = True

After this line of code, the Visible property is still false, when watched using a breakpoint.

Please post the code your are using to define the drop-down box.  You may also be trying to set this before the control has loaded in which case it wouldn't work.
Please also post the code around you trying to set the Visible property

The drpRootCauses Visible property is not set correctly. The drpRootCauses Visible property still remains False when the breakpoint is set after this line of code.  Please refer to attachment.

Here is the code that is used to define and use the drop down box:

Protected WithEvents drpRootCauses As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
.
.
.

            drpRootCauses.Visible = True

            Dim Reader4 As SqlDataReader = sqlGetRootCause.ExecuteReader

            Dim lstNew2 As New ListItem
            lstNew2.Text = ""
            lstNew2.Value = ""
            drpRootCauses.Items.Add(lstNew2)

            While Reader4.Read()
                Dim lstNew3 As New ListItem
                lstNew3.Text = Reader4.Item(0)
                lstNew3.Value = Reader4.Item(0)
                drpRootCauses.Items.Add(lstNew3)
            End While
            Reader4.Close()

There is another property namely divRootCause.Visible that was set to False. The divRootCause tag contains the drpRootCause drop down. The problem was fixed when I set both the Visible property of the div and drop down control to True.
