Setting DropDownList Selected Item from dbase SELECT
Hi! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this problem, but I can't seem to find the answer. I'm making an edit page for a user to edit their profile.

Also, since the drop-down control is within a repeater control (to populate the fields), it makes it even more diffi...
