gridview defaults in footer row

P: n/a
This should be REALLY straightforward. I have a gridview that allows
editing, deleting and inserting (from the footer row). There is a Drop
Down ListBox in the one column, which needs to ALWAYS set to a default
value (but not always the same value, so I can't set it declaritively.
It will ultimately depend on a session variable as to which default to
use).

However, the point is that the DDL in the footer (insert) row must
ALWAYS be set, even after inserts, edits & deletes.

I dont think this is possible, though. I have tried everything!!!

Here is the simplified code, using Northwind, so easy to set up:
