dropdownlist - default value is not 'selected value'

i have created a dropdown list that is populated from a sqlserver datasource. i have a separate sql command which uses the dropdownlist.selected value as a parameter and returns the command value to a label.  it mostly works fine but with one problem. when the page loads, the label value is null, because it doesn't seem to treat the dropdownlist default value as a selected value. when i use the dropdownlist to select a value, this is fine and the label begins to display the expected value. is there anyway I can make the default value when the page is loaded act like a manually selected value, so the label control never displays a null value?

JQuery with dynamic ASP.NET controls (DropDownList)

I am mixing JQuery with ASP.NET webforms.  Adding dynamic controls and accessing the selected values with JQuery works differently under different circumstances and I am trying to establish the difference. Why does Senario 1 work in debug mode but not without breakpoints?  What does databinding to a GridView do that adding DropDownList controls to a asp:panel does not? Is there some sort of DOM registration going on in DataBind? All senarios use the same JQuery: var ddlCollection = $("select[name$='ddlDynamicDropDown']") Senario 1: Breakpoints on each line (Success) Add DropDownList controls to a asp:panel dynamically in the PageLoad method (Does the page lifecycle matter? OnLoad method instead?). Run the code Select values and click on a button firing a JavaScript function (Break in Debug) Break in JavaScript file Access the dropdowns and their selected values successfully Senario 2:  Run the Senario 1 code without breakpoints (Fails to locate the ddlCollection) Senario 3: Use a GridView (Success) Add values to populate the DropDownList controls to a Generic List. Bind the values to a GridView control containing the DropDownList controls Run the code Select values and click on a button firing a JavaScript function Use JQuery to Access the dropdowns and their selected values successfully.

Selected Option from dropdownlist

 I need to figure out a way to modify the style property of a div on my page so that when a certain item ("Not shown - please quote") on a few different dropdownlists are selected,  the div style is set to "display: none". The dropdownlist gets generated dynamically and the amount of dropdownlists varys for each product. I've named the class via the cssclass property in the dropdownlist template usercontrol to be "dropDownClass".Here is my code for this page: <div id="ProductControls"> <div id="ProductOptions"> <div id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_VariantsPanel" class="variantsdisplay"> <table> <tr class="dropdownlist"> <td class="choicelabel"><span id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_modifierTemplate1_InputLabel">Color</span></td> <td class="choicefield"><select name="ctl00$MainContentHolder$VariantsDisplay$modifierTemplate1$ModifierList" onchange="javascript:setTimeout('__doPostBack(\'ctl00$MainContentHolder$VariantsDisplay$modifierTemplate1$ModifierList\',\'\')', 0)" id="ctl00_MainContentHolder_VariantsDisplay_modifierTemplate1_ModifierList" clas

How to Capture a DropDownList Selected Index Change Event

I have a gridview that receives data based on selection from a primary dropdownlist object. Works. Within the gridview, there is a dropdownlist whose selected index is based on the query from the primary dropdownlist. Works. Problem. How do I force the used to  change whatever value that the dropdownlist contains after they make their initial selection from the primary dropdownlist; except the default value of "Please make a selection". Gridview, contains a checkbox which drives whether a selected row is inserted into the data base. The databind in done using an ObjectDataSource on the presentation page, not in the code behind.   Thank you.   Ayomide
