ASP.NET GRIDVIEW - ADDING COMBO BOX

How can I add a combo box column to an asp.net gridview control using vb.net?  I have the code that adds a column that's bound but how do I make it combo boxes?


Try '...add column
            grdOSS0.AutoGenerateColumns = False
            Dim Field As New BoundField
            Field.DataField = "part"
            Field.HeaderText = "Part"
            Dim Col As DataControlField = Field
            grdOSS0.Columns.Add(Col)
            grdOSS0.DataBind()
        Catch ex As Exception
 
        End Try
