I have a Droddownlist that is populated with a datasource that contains a liste of objects that has 5 properties; I set thedisplaymember and valuemember to two properties ("Description" and "ItemCode") of the object.
Immediately after assigning the datasource a "selectedIndexChanged" event is fired; at this point I have in the selectedvalue property the object of index 0 of the datasource, therefore I can access to the valuemember by "selectedValue.ItemCode"
When, later, the user selects an item in the dropdownliste, the selectedindex is fired, the "selectedItemValue" contains the property "itemcode" of the selected item and not the selected object
Consequently I dont know how to get access to the "itemCode" property in the selectedIndex event, if I use .SelectedValue.itemcode it works after the loading but fails when the user selects an item; and if I use SelectedValue the code fails immediately after databinding
Thanks in advance for your advice
