hi dineshkumar,

Below sample code shows how to get selected value and selected item from dropdown list control.
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMonth" Width="200px" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Value="0">--Select--</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="1">January</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="2">February</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="3">March</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="4">April</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="5">May</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="6">June</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="7">July</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="8">August</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="9">September</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="10">October</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="11">November</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="12">December</asp:ListItem>
</asp:DropDownList><br /><br />
<asp:Button ID="btnGetMonth" runat="server" Text="Get Month"
onclick="btnGetMonth_Click" /><br /><br />
Selected Value : <asp:Label ID="lblMonthVal" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label><br />
Selected Item : <asp:Label ID="lblMonthItem" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>

code behind part:
protected void btnGetMonth_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
lblMonthVal.Text = ddlMonth.SelectedValue;
lblMonthItem.Text = ddlMonth.SelectedItem.Text;

ddlMonth.SelectedValue returns the value of selected item in dropdown control ex if you select January from dropdown list then Selected Value would be 1 and selected item would be January.
I hope this will help you.
