Hi. When I select an item in my DropDownList I don't see the value in the variable P below
Also after the section the DropDownList text is  blank. What might cause this

    Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles DropDownList1.SelectedIndexChanged

        Dim P As String = Me.DropDownList1.Text

    End Sub
