I have a template field in the item template of a gridview.  The template field is a status dropdownlist that fires an onindexchanged event for the drop down.  I need to reference the row index of the row that fired the drop down on index changed.

Nothing chages in the gridview so I cant reference the datakey, or use the row event args cause it is a template field off of the item template.  No row is selected, so is there a way to get that information his way???

Please help
Protected Sub drpStatus_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim strStatus as String = sender.SelectedValue
        Dim strID as String = Gridiew1.SelectedRow.Items.cells(0)
        or something like
        Dim strID as String =  GridView1.SelectedDataKey
    End Sub
