Update Panel not updating content

I was trying this from some time, but I am not able to get around it. Following is the code of the aspx page display:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    Test<br />
    <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">
            <br />
            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>

Following is the code for the button1 click event:

Public Class WebForm1
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

    End Sub

    Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles DropDownList1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Label1.Text = DropDownList1.SelectedIndex


    End Sub
End Class

Could you please tell me what I missed out.


Set the autopostback to true in the drop down.

The true means: everytime the value in the drop down changes, a postback to the server will occur.

But listen to Tim Schmelter answer. If the drop down will not change, it's a good idea to put it outside the update panel and the update panel must be triggered asynchronous by the drop down (if you don't set a trigger to the update panel, every postback will update your updatepanel). If the content of the dropdown changes, put it inside the updatepanel.

But like I said, I'm not using that for a long time, its a good idea to double check everything I say about the subject. =p

PS: Microsoft Update Panels are easy to develop but make your site very slow. Try to learn about aspnet webservices and jQuery.
