I have this dropdownlistbox control on my webform which has a dozen of items binding to it. After I do an update on a selected item, I reset the list and the problem is that the item that was updated is no longer being selected or highlighted.

How do I make the list programatically go back and highlight the item that I was updating it ?

I went though all the dropdownlistbox methods but no luck.
Please advise,

Thank you.

use viewstate and save your selected index in it. After your update go back and set the selectedIndex property of the list box to the value in viewstate.

Me.ViewState("Index") = ListBox1.SelectedIndex

'
Update / process
'

ListBox1.SelectedIndex = Me.ViewState("Index")

Hope this is helps
