accessing the readonly properties of a listmenu with a user control?

Hi There,

I am trying to use the to obtain the information from 2 listmenus, if the
user makes a selection the page is submitted and then based on the value
selected is transfererd to another page. This works ok on it's own but I
can't seem to access the actual value of the control or the option value
( <option value="6">...NT...</option>)
..
Any ideas ppl?

Moe

Hi,

If I get you right you need to use ListBox SelectedItem.Value to get
current user select value.

Public ReadOnly Property SelectedCategoriesID As String
Get
return lstCategorie.SelectedItem.Value
End Get
End Property

Hi Natty,

The only problem is I get the error "Object reference not set to an instance
of an object. " if I change the code to:

How can I get around this error?

Hi,

so the user didn't select any item. select if SelectedItem is null
before using it.

Hi Natty,

The user did select an item, as soon as the form is submitted the error
occurs.
