VB.NET databind to drop down list

I have a stored procedure in SQL Server that returns a list of names that I
would like to bind to a drop down list. This is the code I have, but it is
not working correctly. The drop down contains System.Data.DataRowView
Dim ConString As String = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("cs")
Dim myCon As New SqlConnection(ConString)

Dim CmdTextAssignedToListing As String = "usp_GetAssignedToNames"
Dim CmdAssignedToListing As New
SqlDataAdapter(CmdTextAssignedToListing, myCon)

Dim dsAssignedToListing As New DataSet
'fill drop down with user names

'Databind to the Drop Down
DropDownAssignedTo.DataSource = dsAssignedToListing

Any help is appreciated.

You miss the setting of the datatextfield in your dropdownlist

It is now like a datagrid.

I hope this helps,
