Looping thru all DDL on a form, checking for value

Using VB ..

Is there a way to loop through all drop down lists on a web form
checking for a specific value (ddlDropDown.Se lectedValue) and then,
based on that value, cause a specific label to go visible or not?

Thanks,
Jim

recursivly loop thru all controls checking the type.

aircode:

LoopThruControl s(this);

void LoopThruControl s(Control ctl)
{
DropDownList ddl = ctl as DropDownList;
if (ddl !=null)
{
// do somthing with selected value
}
foreach (Control child in ctl.Controls)
{
LoopThruControl s(child);
}
}
