I have a dropdownlist in asp.net 2.0.

This dropdownlist is populated from a SQLDATASOURCE control.

When the control is created the 1st item in the list does not let me click on it.  I am pasting the code below.  Please help.

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="TemplateSource" runat="server"
     ConnectionString="<%$  ConnectionStrings:NewDMSConnectionString %>"
     SelectCommand="select * from Template inner join Templatedetail on tmptype = RepType order by tmpName"
     DataSourceMode="DataReader"/>

<asp:DropDownList id="TemplateList" Runat="Server"
  DataSourceID="TemplateSource"
  DataTextField="tmpName"
  DataValueField="tmpID"
  AutoPostBack="True"  
  OnSelectedIndexChanged="GetTemplateData"/><br/>
