the browser only sends back the selected value to the server. if

in oninit you need to add code on the server side that adds the new
value to the DropDownList. you could look in the form collection for the
value.

On a tab I have one DropDownList which requires a postback and two
ListBoxes which do not require any postback because I just have some
javascript, defined in the aspx file, to copy items from one listbox
to the other. *All 3 of these controls exist in a table which is
inside an UpdatePanel. *When the drop down list value changes and the
postback occurs the data that I had in my listbox control disappears.
How do I fix this?

Huh? Did you mean Listbox not DropDownList? The drop-down is working
fine, it's the Listbox data that gets cleared after the drop-down list
causes the postback.
