Hi all,

I've a dropdownList box where it always selects the 1st index(say a). I couldn't select b,c etc....

Here is my coding .....
protected void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        select_people.Visible = true;
        int ss = Convert.ToInt32(DropDownList1.SelectedValue);
        // _BindEmployeelistByNetwkID(Convert.ToInt32(ddlNetwkName.SelectedValue));
        DropDownList2.DataSource = objBAL.GetNetWorkDetailslist(Convert.ToInt32(Session["UserId"]), Convert.ToInt32(ss));
        DropDownList2.DataTextField = "EmployeeName";
        DropDownList2.DataValueField = "NetwkID";
            DropDownList2.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("Select", "0"));

    protected void DropDownList2_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        display.Visible = true;
        Name.Text = DropDownList2.SelectedItem.Text;


DropDownList2.SelectedItem.Text; is not working properly as I couldn't select other options rather than 1st one. Can anyone guide me ?????

Are you databinding ddl1 in PageLoad without checking for IsPostBack?

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
select_people.Visible = false;

display.Visible = false;

Are you databinding in _LoadNetwkHdList()?

s ryanDev ..... i binded in ddl1 ..... My concept is
ddl1 --- Select network ---- cat (working)
ddl2 --- Select people ---- a (works but i couldn't select b,c,d) ...

void _LoadNetwkHdList()
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt = objBAL.GetNetwkList("SelectNetwork");
DropDownList1.DataSource = dt;
DropDownList1.DataTextField = "NetwkName";
DropDownList1.DataValueField = "NetwkID";
DropDownList1.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("Select", "0"));
