Bind the selected value to a hidden field. In the OnDataBound event, loop through the rows of the gridview and apply the values. Finally set the selected value based on the hidden field.

I need to do complex data binding with a Display Member and a value member.

How could i do that?
myDDL.DataSource = MyDataTable;
myDDL.DataTextField = "Column1Name";
myDDL.DataValueField = "Column2Name";
