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.
