I have created a aspx page that contains a gridview with a dropdownlist that will be updated for every row in the gridview.  I want to know the correct parameter values to use when setting up the sqldatasource.  I will be using a button to initate the process.  Below is my html.

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="AssignRole.aspx.vb" Inherits="AssignRole" %>
