I used the code below to fire a stored procedure without having to 'edit' the row using a command button, it works fine, but now I want to do the same using a dropdownlist which will be in each gridview row, again without having to 'edit' the row.
How do I make it so that when I change one of the drop down lists it passes the row key value and the dropdown value to a stored procedure similarly to this command button solution?
Thanks in advance,
Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "SetMessagePreference" Then
 
            Dim sConnStr As String = SqlDataSource1.ConnectionString
            Dim cnBKTest As New SqlConnection(sConnStr)
            Dim cmdTest As New SqlCommand("FGContactDetailsMessagePreference", cnBKTest)
 
            cmdTest.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
            cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@ContractID", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 10))
            cmdTest.Parameters("@ContractID").Value = e.CommandArgument
            cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@MessagePreferenceID", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 10))
            cmdTest.Parameters("@MessagePreferenceID").Value = 2
 
            cnBKTest.Open()
            cmdTest.ExecuteNonQuery()
            cnBKTest.Close()
            GridView1.DataBind()
        End If
    End Sub
