Table with dropdown list in C#.NET

How can I get the data from database
and then populate them into a table IN C#.NET?

I have got no problem on getting data, but just don't know how to populate into a table....seem no control can help on my requirement.

however, each cell in the table is a dropdown list.
if no data is found in the database, that dropdown list will be selected the first value
otherwise, it will be selected the value based on the data of that cell.

How to do this?

yes, it's an ASP.NET application
can u give me a sample?
The c# code:

partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
	protected System.Data.DataView dvCBO()
		//get your combobox data here and return it as dataview
		//For this example we assume it has 2 fields, [ID] and [Name]
		//These fields will be the DataValueField and DatatextField for cbo

	protected System.Data.DataView dvMain()
		//return the data from main table here
		//For this example we assume the value we want to set in combobox is in field [cboValue]
		//If the field is not filled the combobox will show the default value
	protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
		if (!this.IsPostBack)
			this.GridView1.DataSource = dvMain();
	public _Default()
		Load += Page_Load;

Open in new window

The markup:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
