    Hi gette,

    To bind dropdownlist in vb.net , you can refer to below code sample  :

    <asp:DropDownList ID = "ddlCustomers" runat="server">

    Code behind :

    Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Me.IsPostBack Then
            Dim constr As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("constr").ConnectionString
            Using con As New MySqlConnection(constr)
                Using cmd As New MySqlCommand("SELECT CustomerId, Name FROM Customers")
                    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
                    cmd.Connection = con
                    ddlCustomers.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader()
                    ddlCustomers.DataTextField = "Name"
                    ddlCustomers.DataValueField = "CustomerId"
                End Using
            End Using
            ddlCustomers.Items.Insert(0, New ListItem("--Select Customer--", "0"))
        End If
    End Sub

    Then you could use the SelectedIndexChanged event of ASP.Net DropDownList :
