Access dropdownlist Nested in GridView in ItemTemplate Formview

How do I access a dropdownlist that is nested within a Formview
ItemTemplate Gridview Template?

I want to see a label (lgbTimeKeep ! TextValue of ddlName
dropdownlist) instead of a dropdownlist in the FormView ItemTemplate
Nested Gridview ddlName ItemTemplate. My label is named lgvTimeKeep
and the dropdownlist name is ddlName.

Thanks!
