I've been trying to get this to work for hours to no avail (at least they're paying me :cheesy: ). I have a DropDownList that obtains its values from a database. The DropDownList will not retain it's values when a Postback is done (caused by a submit button being pressed), and I cannot use the .selectedindex or .selectedvalue properties in my coding, which are both very important. I think the reason this is happening is that the list binds the data to itself each time the page loads and the Load event occurs before all Postback Events, thus the dropdownlist is completely reset before the button's click event occurs. How can I work around this and use obtain the dropdownlist values I need?
