hi friends,
i have a problem in firing dropdownlist event
i have following dropdown
<asp:dropdownlist id="ddlhello" Runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"  onchange="javascript:return ChangeHeader();">

i have also added event in code behind i.e. selectedindex change event.

Now problem occurs when i execute the page, it executes javascript but server side code doesnot fire, but if i remove this line onchange="javascript:return ChangeHeader();" then server side code fires.

when i checked source page it shows me two onchange events associated
one for javascript and other for server side.

i think that it is picking client side code and neglects server side.

I am not pretty sure, so i want to know the behavior reason.

And what is the way out for this.

i want server and client side code to be executed.
i have searched for solutions but i have not found any correct reason.
please reply for the same. Thanks in advance

you might have not added return true; at the end of the ChangeHeader() function in javascript...

i have returned true, but that was not working.
its .NET 2002 in which i am making this change.

If there is an error in javascript function then it returns false, please check for it also.
