I wish to set the selection of the dropdownlist at the runtime. I searched for this in the help of VS2005 and found the following code:
Dim li As ListItem = DropDownList1.Items.FindByText(TextBox1.Text)
If Not li Is Nothing Then
li.Selected = True
But when I use this code it is giving error cannot select multiple Items in a dropdownlist. whereas all the items in the dropdownlist are unique. Can somenody help with this code or suggest new code for the setting selection in dropdownlist control at runtime.
