Hello dear

You can use select_IndexChangeEvent Like this...

Protected Sub MyDropDownList_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyDropDownList.SelectedIndexChanged
        
              Mytextbox.text =  MyDropDownList.selectedItem.text
        
    End Sub

And make sure Your Dropdownlist must have Autopostback property = true

Mark as solved if it helps you!!!

Hi,
You might have stored the name of the customer in the database.
Just write a query to fetch the name from the table and add it to the textbox.

protected void dropdownlst_selectectchange(object s, evetntargs s)
{
string str=dropdownlist1.selecteditem.text;
string sql="select name from customer where custid="+str;
sqlcommand cmd=new sqlcommand(sql,connectionstring)

But the Text Box should display the corresponding name of customer once i select the cid (Customer iD) from the drop down list.
I need coding in c#.

Hi,
May be you have not set the AutoPostBack property to true.
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="dropdownlst_selectectchange">
