I have a repeater control with a drop down list box and I want to insert a record into the drop down list called "---Please Select -".  How can I insert this row to the drop down list box.  

for (int i=0;i<dtJobOrderDetails.Rows.Count;i++)
     Control m_Installed = m_LineItem.Items[i].FindControl("m_Installed");
     m_Installed.????  =  "---Please Select -";   --- ????? Need help????

<asp:DropDownList ID="m_InstallType" DataValueField="INSTALLTYPEID" DataTextField="INSTALLTYPECODE" DataSource='<%# GetInstallType() %>' SelectedIndex='<%# GetSelectedIndex(Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"INSTALLTYPEID"))) %>' runat="server" CssClass="SmallInputDropDown"></asp:DropDownList>
