I'm new with asp.net and i think this is really easy question, but i can't find the answer
I have a DropDownList on my page, one of the ways to go to that page is follow the link on the other page (page B). By this link i deliver some parameters, so i use them in the Page_load of page A:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

        string strStatus = Request.QueryString["status"];

        DListStatus.SelectedValue = strStatus;

    }

I thought that .ClearSelection() will help

i really wonder what to do and will really appreciate your help

    Hi Ashish, 


    Check if is it is a post back

    if (!Page.IsPostBack)

    {

        string strStatus = Request.QueryString["status"];

        DListStatus.SelectedValue = strStatus;

    }
