Just bind as normal. The string becomes the value and the text.

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlList" runat="server" />

DaTribe
List<string> items = new List<string>
	{"One", "Two", "Three"};

ddlList.DataSource = items;
ddlList.DataBind();

Open in new window

Hello, You have to try this code

string[] myStrings = new string[] {"string1", "string2", "string3"};

DropDownList ddl = new DropDownList();

ddl = (DropDownList)e.Row.FindControl("ddlMyStrings");

ddl.DataSource = myStrings;

ddl.DataBind();
