Hi All,

I have five dropdownlist in my aspx page where there is static values and one button on click event on the button i want the values of dropdownlist in Label but when i m clicking the button the dropdownlist automatically appears the first value,

so in code behind i m getting the first value always,

<asp:DropDownList ID="drpProduct" runat="server" Width="104%" Style="margin-top: -4.2%; margin-left: 16px">
                                <asp:ListItem Value="--Select Product--"></asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem Value="All">All Product</asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem Value="Cotton S6">Cotton S6</asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem Value="Cotton S5">Cotton S5</asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem Value="Stone x 1">Stone x 1</asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem Value="Stone x 2">Stone x 1</asp:ListItem>

<asp:Button ID="btnSearch" runat="server" CssClass="btn green" Text="Search" ValidationGroup="val" UseSubmitBehavior="false" OnClick="btnSearch_Click" />

And code behind is:

lblProduct.Text = drpProduct.SelectedValue;

Please guide me on this...

Where in the page life cycle are you setting lblProduct.Text = drpProduct.SelectedValue;
Maybe the selected index is getting reset somewhere before hand.

You probably are binding your dropdown in PageLoad without checking for IsPostBack.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            // bind your dropdown here

    protected void btnSearch_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
