Databound RadioButtonList Selected Item in a Data Grid

I have the following template column in a data grid whose data source is a data view.  The column displays the stored text value for the loan type from the database in a label for display in the data grid.  For editing, a radio button list is populated with items from another data view that contains all of the available loan types.  One of these items from the second data view matches the displayed value from the first data view.

<asp:TemplateColumn Visible="False" SortExpression="FormOption1" HeaderText="Loan Type">
            <asp:Label id=lblLoanTypeDG runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.FormOption1") %>'>
            <asp:RadioButtonList id=rblEditLoanType runat="server" Width="200px" Height="40px" DataSource="<%# dvLoanType %>" DataTextField="OptionValue" DataValueField="OptionValue">

What do I need to add to the code for the EditItemTemplate above that will select the correct loan type item?  Do I add a "Selected Index" parameter and tie that to a query that will return the appropriate index?  If so, I'm not quite sure about the syntax required in the asp:RadioButtonList item.  If that's not the way to approach it, how do you do it?

Thanks in advance,

In the itemdatabound event you can it

 If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.EditItem Then
If Not DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "FormOption1") Is DBNull.Value Then
   Dim ListFormOption1 As ListItem = CType(e.Item.FindControl("rblEditLoanType "), RadioButtonList).Items.FindByValue(DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "FormOption1"))
   If Not ListFormOption1 Is Nothing Then
      ListFormOption1 .Selected = True
   End If

End IF
