You can use DateTime.DaysInMonth Method[^] to get the number of days in a month and assign the result to your textbox in the SelectedIndexChanged event of your dropdown.

Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DropDownList1.SelectedIndexChanged
Dim days As Integer

Dim numberofdays, monthnumber As Integer
Dim IsLeapYear As Boolean = DateTime.IsLeapYear(year)
If year >= 1 AndAlso year <= 12 Then
Select Case monthnumber
Case 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12
numberofdays = 31
Case 4, 6, 9, 11
numberofdays = 30
Case 2
If IsLeapYear Then
numberofdays = 29
numberofdays = 28
End If
End Select
TextBox24.Text = numberofdays

Exactly how you do this depends on what you load into your DropDownList in the first place (a string would be different from a number, would be different from a Month class) - and also on what environment you are trying to work. The solution for a web based project would be different from that for a windows application (in that it would involve Javascript to save a postback).

But the basic structure is the same: handle the Changed event fro the drop down, get teh current value, then either look it up in a table or use it's parameters to access the number of days. Then look at the year to check for leap years / February problems, and set teh value.

But we can't be more specific without knowing a lot more about your environment.
