Hi Experts,

How to display a value in the dropdownlist .  I have a dropdown list where I have 2 values. 'Yes' and 'No'. But sometimes I need to display the value from the DB.  Right now I am using this code.

If Reader.Item("Active") = "Y" Then
                ddlCustActive.SelectedItem.Text = "Yes"
Else
               ddlCustActive.SelectedItem.Text = "No"
 End If

It is working. but changing the selected item text in the list and displaying either two 'yes' or two 'no'


Thanks.

Use the FindByText option:
ddlCustActive.Items.FindByText("Yes").Selected = true

I changed the code little bit and it worked.

ddlCustActive.SelectedValue = ddlCustActive.Items.FindByText("Yes").Value

Thank you so much for your help.
