Default problem in selecting the item from drop down list

Hi all,

I want my application to work in following way,

I am displaying the list of job using datagrid.By default all jobs will be displayed. A dropdown list is provided to select a category. I have set the dropdownlists autopostback event equal true. I am displaying the job depending on category.

All things working fine except the first item don't get selected. after post back i want to display the name of item selected. but it showing the first item every time.

Please help.

sounds like you are reloading the data on every post back. Put the code that fills the ds in an:
If Not IsPostBack Then
 ..fill ds
end if
