I have an asp.net application and Im trying to accomplish the following.

For arguments sake lets say I have a <asp:button> <asp:dropdownlist> and a <asp:label>
When I click the button I want to check the dropdownlist for selectedvalue > 0 and make the label visible if true

I have save code that runs on the OnClick event of the button already but if the selecteditem.value of a dropdown =0 I want the save code not to run and just show a label that Im using as a fieldvalidator(user must select a drop down item)

I tried to create a function that would with OnClientClick but obviously didnt do it correctly...

Any help would be appreciated!
