Set parameters for gridview select statement

I have set up a grid view and I want to use a stored procedure to populate the grid. This works if I hard code a value, but I want to use value of HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name.

For example
SelectCommand="sp_SelectStatement 'mysearchitem' works but
SelectCommand="sp_SelectStatement '<%=HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name %>'
doesn't.
I've also tried using <%#eval(HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name)%> and this doesn't work either.

Thanks.

you should use a parameterised query. then just set the username to a session variable in the pageload. and set a sessionparameter in the markup.
'PageLoad
 Sub page_load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Session("username") = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name
    End Sub
 
'FrontEnd
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:urodataConnectionString %>"
            SelectCommand="Testselectuser" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure">
            <SelectParameters>
                <asp:SessionParameter Name="name" SessionField="username" />
            </SelectParameters>
        </asp:SqlDataSource>
