I could be misunderstanding your problem, but would the DropDownList control work better for you in this situation?  Unless you have compelling reasons to use a straight "select" tag, the DropDownList handles a lot of difficult tasks for you such as preselecting a value.

Please look at this sample:

<select id="Select1" runat="server" style="width: 223px">
<option selected="selected"></option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
<option value="5">5</option>

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
for (int i = 0; i < Select1.Items.Count; i++)
if (Select1.Items[i].Value == "4")
Select1.SelectedIndex = i;

Hope it helps.

retrieving checkboxlist values from database
HiI'm using a CheckBoxList server control and trying to select certain values which are retrieved from a database.  How ever, i'm only getting one checkbox 'checked' even when there are multiple values. Public Sub getFacilities(ByVal queryString As String, ByVal connectionString As SqlConnection) Using connectionString connectionString.Open() Dim command As New SqlCommand(queryString, connectionString) Dim reader As SqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader() While reader.Read() CType(FormView1.FindControl("facilityCheckBoxList"), CheckBoxList).SelectedValue = reader(0) End While End Using End Sub  The single value which is selected is correct, and i have also run the SQL command seperatly which shows that there should be multiple values! thanks  Hi!, This is happening because you r resetting selectedvalue everytime while running the loop, so in the end of the loop it gives u the selected value for the last value. U have to check each item for the checkboxlist and find a match for the value from the sqldatareader, if matches then set that Checkboxlist item's selected property = true; While reader.Read(){ for (int i = 0; i < chk1.Items.Count;i++) { if (reader(0) == chk1.Items[i].Value) chk1.Items[i].Selected = true; } } Hope this will help.
