Hi All,

I am working
i added one dropdownlist and one button to the page. I displayed the item into dropdownlist from database. When i select the item from dropdownlist and clicking on the button it should displaying only the first item from dropdownlist.

Here is my code
 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ddlCategory.DataSource = DBCategory.GetAllCategory();
        ddlCategory.DataValueField = "CategoryId";
        ddlCategory.DataTextField = "CategoryName";
protected void Search_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        int i = ddlCategory.SelectedValue;

"i" is displaying first item from the dropdownlist when i select the any item in the dropdownlist..

Please tell me the solution..
