C# - event not firing

I have two events:

1. btn1_Click (firing okay, but...)
2. cboRegion_OnTextChanged (is not firing.)

The html/aspx lines for each event shown just above the events.

Question: How can I change the event for cboRegion so it would fire as well?

Thank you.
<asp:Button ID="btn1"  GroupName="cmdOpt" Name="opt" runat="server" Text="1" TabIndex="1" onclick="btn1_Click"   />

protected void btn1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["strBtn"] = strBtn;
        // Response.Redirect("Default2.aspx",false);
    }
------------------------------------
       <asp:DropDownList ID="cboRegion" runat="server" Width="83" OnTextChanged="cboRegion_OnTextChanged" >
            <asp:ListItem Text="Region 1" Value="1"  />
            <asp:ListItem Text="Region 2" Value="2"  />
            <asp:ListItem Text="Region 3" Value="3"  />
        </asp:DropDownList>

    protected void cboRegion_OnTextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["Year"] = "3333";
        // Response.Redirect("Default2.aspx",false);
    }

Instead of OnTextChanged event, try using OnSelectedIndexChanged event.
OnSelectedIndexChanged="cboRegion_Change"

Open in new window

I am assuming user is not allowed to "type" in the drop down, and only "select"

Hi Raghu for coming to my rescue,

That was excellent point because the users just select not change values. This is what is happening now:

I select a different year but its event doesn't fire. However, when I click on the button, all of sudden it stops at the break point in cboRegion_Change event.

Question: What is the explanation for this?

Thanks,

Mike

Possibly, one difference between the button and the rest is buttons submit while the other may not do that. Does this kind of make sense to you?

If so, then how can we get some action from the controls other than buttons?

I got it, I need to set:

AutoPostBack="True"

in those controls.
