DropDownList SelectedIndexChanged not firing for extra <form>

I'm using .NET framework 1.1 and VS.NET 2003 for a aspx web form.

There is a DropDwonList on the page and its SelectedIndexChanged event is
fired to the server normally, until when I add another form "FormDummy" onto
the main form, and then the event no longer fires again when the user change
the value of the drop down list.

Can anybody help ? Thanks so much!

The aspx code is as follows:
(Every thing works fine is the form "FormDummy" is abscent !)

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.vb"
Inherits="HKG.WebForm1"%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>WebForm1</title>

<form id="Form2" method="post">

POSITION: absolute; TOP: 64px"

<asp:ListItem Value="1">1</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="2">2</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="3">3</asp:ListItem>
</asp:DropDownList>
</form>
</form>
</body>
</HTML>

George,
An ASP.NET WebForm page can have only one server-side Form tag.
And if you want to catch server-side event(s) for a web control, then
place it within the one server-side Form tag.

Yes there is only one server side form <Form1> on the page, and <FormDummy>
and <Form2> are just client side form tags without runat="server" attribute.
The behavior is that the drop down list under <Form2> (which is under
<Form1>) fires the SelectedIndexChangedEvent, but it does not fire when I add
<FormDummy> under <Form1>. <FormDummy> is in the same level as <Form2> and
just has nothing to do with the drop down list.

Many thanks.

Best Regards,
George

So what I mean is the event is still not fired if i have a dummy form
besides the form hosting my webcontrol.
Any ideas? Thx.

Nested forms aren't valid HTML anyway. Whatever you're trying to do, you're
going about it wrong.
