I've setup a template column with a dropdownlist.  I have an Insert button that adds a null row to the datagrid to insert new records.  In order to properly insert a new row, I have to populate my ddl with data from another table due to the relation with that table.  I'm having a problem trying to populate this ddl.

//dtType is my datatable
dtType Type = new dtType();

DropDownList list = (DropDownList)
list.DataTextField = "ddlType";
list.DataValueField = "IDType";
list.DataSource = Type;

Any Suggestions?
