How can i display a selected item from a drop down list to a label.

1. Take One Label (label1) and combobox (comboBox1).
2. In SelectedIndexChanged event of combobox write following code.
private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    label1.Text = comboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

For value selected:
myLabel.Text = myDropdown.SelectedValue;

For text selected:
myLabel.Text = myDropdown.SelectedText;

For Web, selected text:
myLabel.Text = myDropdown.SelectedItem.Text;

Use debugger! You are surely missing out something. Might be rebinding the dropdownlist before the event is raised.
