Hi guys, I'm not sure if this question belongs to FAQ, but I couldn't find a concrete answer. I created a Datagrid control using ItemTemplate, but it's NOT a in-place editing datagrid. One of the columns of the data grid contains a DropDownlist. I managed to create this datagrid control as follows.

I am adding a DropDownList control to my DataGrid footer template. I load my DropDownList using a function that returns an arrayList. I can see all my items in the DropDownList, but when I select an item from the list, I am unable to trap the DropDownList SelectedIndexChanged event. This is a snippet of my DataGrid: <asp:TemplateColumn> <ItemTemplate> <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "State") %>

Hi folks, I have a DropDownList in a DataGrid that is populated from records in a database. I want to add a value that might be a string such as "Select a Company" for the first item since an OnSelectedIndex event is not fired if you select the first item. Does anyone know of an easy way to do this?

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
