I have a DropdownList1 it uses sqldatasource1 to get the states but I want the first state on pageload to be MN.  How do I get it to show MN?  MN is item 6 in the db.

This is what I have now:

if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            string x = "6";
            x = DropDownList1.SelectedItem;
        }
