ok this is my scenario. I've never coded in asp.net. I can manipulate it a
little bit because I have some coding knowledge but I don't know what I
am doing so I need help figuring out how to do this.

This is what I'm trying to do...I have this drop down menu that has US jobs in it. I want when a person clicks a state the jobs available in that state appear. The jobs also have to be links. I just want the job title to appear. I have the descriptions and such on individual pages and I don't want to utilize a DB.

Is there a way, when the user selects the state the results are posted back to the user?

For instance I saw the code attached online. Is there a way I can manipulate this and say if the state is Florida print out florida jobs?

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<script runat="server">

    void page_Load()
    {
         if(Page.IsPostBack)
         {
             if(chkIsMember.Checked==true){
                 lblOut.Text = "Members get a free ticket";
                 lblOut.BackColor=System.Drawing.Color.LightPink;
             }
             else if(Convert.ToInt32(txtAge.Text)<=18) {
                 lblOut.Text = "Students get a free ticket";
                 lblOut.BackColor=System.Drawing.Color.LightPink;
             }else {
                 lblOut.Text = "Price is 500";
                 lblOut.BackColor=System.Drawing.Color.LightSeaGreen;
             }
         }
    }

Set ur dropdownlists AutoPostback property to True, and write code on the SelectedIndexChanged property.

for ex.,
you have items ABC,XYZ in your dropdownlist, then on SelectedIndexChanged event write a code something like this,

protected void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
      
       if(DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Value=="ABC")
       {
            //code to display statewise jobs..
       }
       if(DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Value=="XYZ")
       {
            //same code..
        }
}

which control ur using to display all the jobs?

hope that helps...

I actually have it working using a loop. This is alot of code but here goes....

protected void state_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{        
	lblOut.Text="";
	ArrayList linkCollection = GetLinksForState(state.SelectedValue);
	//ArrayList title = GetLinksForState(state.SelectedValue);
        
        //Aksh: This method would do everything for you.
        //Following loop can be done in better way. You may modify the text the way you wanted to display
        for (int i = 0; i < linkCollection.Count; i++)
        {
            lblOut.Text += "<a href='" + linkCollection[i] + "'>" + linkCollection[i] + "</a> <br />";
        }
	
}
	 public ArrayList GetLinksForState(string stateValue)
    {
        ArrayList linksCollection = new ArrayList();
        switch (state.SelectedValue)
        {
           case "Alabama":

I've had some help with this but my help has left me. Now what I'm trying to do print out some text and make it a url using the key and value of an array. If you can help with this is would be greatly appreciated...
This is crashing on me and I don't do asp.net so I can't really say why or ahy not. Can you help with this?

protected void state_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{        
    lblOut.Text="";
    NameValueCollection linkCollection = GetLinksForState(state.SelectedValue);
    //ArrayList title = GetLinksForState(state.SelectedValue);

        //Aksh: This method would do everything for you.
        //Following loop can be done in better way. You may modify the text the way you wanted to display
        foreach (string key in linkCollection)
        {
            string keyName = key;
            string keyValue = linkCollection[key];
            lblOut.Text += "<a href='" + keyValue + "'>" + keyName + "</a><br />";
        }

}

public ArrayList GetLinksForState(string stateValue)
    {
        //ArrayList linksCollection = new ArrayList();
        NameValueCollection links = new NameValueCollection();
        switch (state.SelectedValue)
        {
           case "Alabama":
                links.Add("College Academic Dean","http://www.blank.com/employment/AL-College-Academic-Dean-Montgomery.aspx");
                break;

}
        return links;
    }
