How would I get the value of a templatefield dropdown into the datanavigateurlstring property within a gridview edit columns using vs2005

I am using the following

Datanavigateurlfields = job_no,Column[6]

Datanavigateurlformatstring = savetime.aspx?job_no={0}&start travel={1}

job_no gets the value but I can get the start_travel value from the dropdown list in column6

This is using the gridview tasks option in vs and not programatically

the Datanavigateurlfields  property accepts the datafield/dataitem values, not a specific column value.

If you could post the code for your gridview, that would help...

OK here is the problem, the hyperlink field is populated when the gridview rows are bound, and the datanavigateurlfields property can only be set to actual dataitems, you could do what you want to do the way you want to do it if your dropdownlist was bound to a dataitem. However you can accomplish this by using the code behind.
I will provide a generic example below.
First you need to convert your hyperlinkfield to a template field and add an onselectedindexchanged event handler to the dropdownlist.
NOTE: If you're storing the time in the database, why not just handle the update on this page using the gridview, it would be much simpler than what is set up here.

<asp:TemplateField>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"
                            onselectedindexchanged="DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged">
                            <asp:ListItem>1</asp:ListItem>
                            <asp:ListItem>2</asp:ListItem>
                            <asp:ListItem>3</asp:ListItem>
                        </asp:DropDownList>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:TemplateField>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server"  NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("job_no", savetime.aspx?job_no={0}") %>'
                            Text="Save"></asp:HyperLink>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>
'Code behind objects

Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        Dim s As DropDownList = sender

        For Each row As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows

            Dim ddl As DropDownList = row.FindControl("DropDownList1")

            If ddl.UniqueID = s.UniqueID Then

                Dim hl As HyperLink = row.FindControl("HyperLink1")

                hl.NavigateUrl = "savetime.aspx?job=" & row.Cells(1).Text & "&finishtravel=" & ddl.SelectedValue 'NOTE: row.cells(1).text should be set to the cell that contains the job_no

            End If

        Next
 

    End Sub

    Sub gridviewrowdb(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound

        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

            Dim ddl As DropDownList = e.Row.FindControl("DropDownList1")

            Dim hl As HyperLink = e.Row.FindControl("HyperLink1")

            hl.NavigateUrl = "savetime.aspx?job=" & DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "job_no") & "&finishtravel=" & ddl.SelectedValue

        End If

    End Sub
