DropDownList in usercontrol does not display new value

P: n/a
I created a dropdownlist containing day, month and year field and expose a property to assign a date. When I call from a aspx page and assign the value, the new date is not displayed until a submit is performed.

How do I force the usercontrol to display the newly assigned date? I don't have this problem if I place the two dropdownlist and the year field directly on the aspx page.

Need a little more info on this...when you say '...I call from a aspx page
and assign
the value, the new date is not displayed', can you explain the whole
scenario. From initial loading of the page the first time up to your
problem? Also, a little code snippet may help debug....

if you're still having problems...

this is the control and the code behind:

==============
As you can see I assign a value via the selcal property but the value does not get updated until I click the submit button to postback the form.

Need a little more info on this...when you say '...I call from a aspx page
and assign
the value, the new date is not displayed', can you explain the whole
scenario. From initial loading of the page the first time up to your
problem? Also, a little code snippet may help debug....

if you're still having problems...
