    I have added one event SelectedIndexChanged inside CategoriesFields UC with the codebehin but my event don't fire. i have many problems with Categories and need more help to catch and use categories from editedMode not from stored as metafields.

    <asp:DropDownList ID="categoriesList" runat="server" OnSelectedIndexChanged="Cat_SelectedIndexChanged"></asp:DropDownList>

    protected void Cat_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

    I have tried after with registrering and override the events

    #region Web Form Designer generated code
    override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)

    private void InitializeComponent()
    this.categoriesList.SelectedIndexChanged += new System.EventHandler(this.Cat_SelectedIndexChanged);

    But NOT FIRE!

    Hi Pierre,

    You should set the AutoPostBack property to true on your drop down list. Event is actually being fired, but the postback is not being performed.

    It should look like this:
    <asp:DropDownList ID="categoriesList" runat="server" OnSelectedIndexChanged="Cat_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true"></asp:DropDownList> 

    All the best,
