clearing dropdownlist selected value


I have this problem when I try to assign selected value using codebehind, even though I already put the code:

dropdownlist.selectedindex=null
or dropdownlist.selectedindex=-1
or dropdownlist.selectedindex=""

all throw error said it can’t have duplicate selected value.
now there are two way to clear the selected value, first by do it twice, like what is listed in bug section in Q327244 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;327244), like this:

dropdownlist.selectedvalue=-1 ‘this will change the selected value index to index number 0
dropdownlist.selectedvalue=-1 ‘this will clear all selected item

or add this code:

dropdownlist.ClearSelection()
