Default DropDownList inside a GridView


Here is an example of an asp.net 2.0 GridView's templated column that contains a dropdownlist control.

aspx page...
<asp:GridView ID="gv1" AutoGenerateColumns="false"
runat="server" OnRowCreated="gv1_RowCreated">
<asp:BoundField HeaderText="Type" DataField="Type" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Categories">
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCategories"
AutoPostBack="true" runat="server"
OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlCategories_SelectedInde xChanged">

code behind...

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
// populate grid
this.gv1.DataSource = <<whatever>>;

protected void gv1_RowCreated(object sender,
GridViewRowEventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
// Bind drop down
DropDownList ddl =
ddl.DataSource = <<whatever>>

protected void ddlCategories_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender,
EventArgs e)
// event fired on change of ddl value
