I am try to add a DropDownList to a gridview where the selected value of the dropdownlist is from one of the bound fields.  

I tried the below code and that shows both fields.  I only want the dropdownlist.

<asp:BoundField DataField="sample_type_id" HeaderText="Sample Type"
                        SortExpression="sample_type_id" HeaderStyle-Font-Names="verdana, arial, helvetica;" HeaderStyle-Font-Size="9px" />
                   
                              <asp:templatefield headertext="Sample Type" HeaderStyle-Font-Names="verdana, arial, helvetica;" HeaderStyle-Font-Size="9px">
<itemtemplate>
 <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList4" runat="server" DataSourceID="sampleTypeInfo"
                            DataTextField="sampleTypeInfo" DataValueField="sampleType_id">
                        </asp:DropDownList>  

</itemtemplate>
</asp:templatefield>

From that sample I am not sure how to change the selected value to the value of the bound field.

 I want the DropDownList4.selectValue = boundfield sample_type_id value

How would I get the value of the boundfield and then set the dropdownlist field.

remove the bound field if you don't want it in the grid view and add the selectedvalue attribute as in the code below:

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList4" runat="server" DataSourceID="sampleTypeInfo"
                            DataTextField="sampleTypeInfo" DataValueField="sampleType_id" SelectedVale=<%# Bind("sample_type_id") %>
                        </asp:DropDownList>
