I am using a tableadapter to fill a dataset and then binding that dataset to a dropdown control.

There are no empty values in the table but I would like for the dropdown list initial setting to not be any of the actual values returned in the table...

How can I set the defualt value of the dropdown list to not be a row in the table that is bound to the control.

If you are using 2.0 you can set the AppendDataBoundItems property to true and then just add an item to the dropdownlist collection
