Editable Datagrid DropDownList

P: n/a

Hi All,
I have an editable datagrid in which one of the fields becomes a Drop
dowl list in edit mode....i followed the example in the $ guysfrom rolla
article
http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/050801-1.2.shtml
however one of them is not really populated from the database, and hence
no need of a dataview...i would like to assign an array or arraylist
alone to it, however it gives all sorts of errors....the code is as
follows

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Zone">
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Label ID="lblZone" Runat="server">
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"cZone") %>
</asp:Label>
</ItemTemplate>
<EditItemTemplate>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" Runat="server"
DataTextField="c1Zone" DataSource="<%#zoned%>"></asp:DropDownList>
</EditItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>
public void zone()
{
ArrayList zoned = new ArrayList();
zoned.Add("GMT-05:00(E.S.T)");
zoned.Add("GMT-04:00(Atlantic Time)");
zoned.Add("GMT+10:00(Australia)");
zoned.Add("GMT+05:30(Asia)");
zoned.Add("GMT-06:00(Central)");
zoned.Add("GMT-08:00(Pacific)");

}
Any ideas or links to articles will be helpful...
thanks
Ben
