I have a web Form with one DropDownList which read it's data from a table.
and I have a button next to the DropDownList which run's an insert query to add a new item to the table.
Until now every thing is fine, but what I need now is to refresh the DropDownList and automatically select the new inserted item.

Hope to solve this problem
Thank you

Before insert the data to the database table, store the value in some variable

for ex.
<br />
Dim strNewValue$="New Data"<br />
<br />
InsertDatabase("New Data")  'Ur functionality to insert in database<br />
<br />
Dim dt as datatable = drpYourdropdown.datasource<br />
Dim dr as datarow<br />
dr=dt.NewRow()<br />
dr.Item(0)=strNewValue<br />
dt.add(dr)<br />
drpYourDropdown.datasource=dt<br />
drpYOurDropdown.databind()<br />
<br />

Try the above code...

Not exact but something like:
dynamic strNewValue = "New Data";

InsertDatabase("New Data");
//Ur functionality to insert in database

DataTable dt = drpYourdropdown.datasource;
DataRow dr = null;
dr = dt.NewRow();
dr[0] = strNewValue;
drpYourDropdown.datasource = dt;
