I have two drop down lists - ddl1 and ddl2 and a button.
I select a value from ddl1 which fires ddl1_selectedIndexChanged event.
On occurance of abovesaid event, ddl1 selected value goes to database in a SELECT statement in WHERE Clause to fetch some rows of required data.
This new data table now populates ddl2.
Now I select a value from ddl2.
I press the button.
Now I want to use the ddl2_selected value in button_click event.
What happens is when I press the button, ddl1_selectedIndexChanged event fires unexpectedly and binds the ddl2 once again and hence I loose the ddl2_selectedValue.
I have not used AJAX or Update Panel in my page.
ddl1 - EnableViewState True, PostBack = True
ddl2 - EnableViewState True, PostBack = False
Please help me out.
Thanks in advance.
