How can I make dropdownlist no postback - I have a dropdownlist which I put a code in selected indexchanged -basically for every indexchanged the code will connect to sql and get values then populate textboxes with values.

here is my code

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlSalesOrg" runat="server" Style="width: 200px;" AutoPostBack="true" />

Obviously when I remove the autopostback="true" - then indexchanged will not function as expected. Hope you get my question.

what do you mean with: 'How can I make dropdownlist no postback' ?
In your example code I do not see the OnSelectedIndexChanged event. Maybe some codebehind to show?
Or do you need a refreshed DropDownList / TextBoxes without a full postback?
In that case use a scriptmanager and an updatepanel around DDL/TB's


You Must give auto post back true if u wants to display in dropdown list select ndex changed event

OnSelectedIndexChanged event will work only if you give AutoPostBack="true".

The AutoPostBack property is used to set or return whether or not an automatic post back occurs when the user presses "ENTER" or "TAB" in the TextBox control.

If this property is set to TRUE the automatic post back is enabled, otherwise FALSE. Default is FALSE.

First you have to understand the basic thing. Check the below article.[^]

You cannot trigger OnSelectedIndexChanged with AutoPostBack="false".
Otherwise, you need to call javascript function on the onchange of the Drop Down List.

I notice that this is old but someone looking for the answer might find my comment helpful.

1. Put the control and the textboxes inside an updatepanel.
2. Set
AutoPostBack = true
on the dropdown.
3. Add the dropdown as an async trigger for the updatepanel.
4. at the end of the
update the panel using
