I have a gridview that is being populated by a datatable that I have created manually. This gridview has text boxes and radiobuttonlists that are visible at all times. In other words the gridview is editable on all rows at all times. I need the radiobuttonlists selected index to be binded to the radiobuttonlist. I currently set up a ondatabound method to set this, but it's not working. Any help on this was be much appreciated.
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //forces postback when the treeview iten's check box is clicked.
            tvContracts.Attributes.Add("onclick", "postBackByObject()");

            ManagedUser = (Administrator)HttpContext.Current.Session["UserObject"];

            //Populating all drop downs for the contract modal window.
            if(!IsPostBack)
            {
                ManagedUser.GetTradeIds(ddlCompany);
                Contracts.getSource(ddlSource);
                Contracts.getTemplate(ddlContractType);
                CallOptions.fillEmptyCallOptionGV(CallOptionGV);
            }
        }


 protected void CallOptionGV_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            RadioButtonList rdl;
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                int i = Convert.ToInt32(e.Row.RowIndex.ToString());
                rdl = (RadioButtonList)e.Row.FindControl("RdCounterNotification");
                rdl.DataSource = CallOptions.dt;
                rdl.DataValueField = CallOptions.dt.Rows[i].Table.Columns[2].ToString();
                rdl.SelectedValue = CallOptions.dt.Rows[i].Table.Columns[2].ToString();
                rdl.DataBind();
            }


        }

Try this:

 RadioButtonList rdl;
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                int i = Convert.ToInt32(e.Row.RowIndex.ToString());
                rdl = (RadioButtonList)e.Row.FindControl("RdCounterNotification");
                rdl.DataSource = CallOptions.dt;
                rdl.DataValueField = [FieldNameForValue];
                rdl.SelectedValue = [FieldNameForText];
                rdl.DataBind();

try {
#Either
                rdl.Items.FindByText["TheDisplayText"].Selected = True
#OR
                rdl.Items.FindByValue["TheValueOfListItem"].Selected = True
}
catch
{
       // Do nothing
}

            }

The try catch makes sure no errors pop up if there are no matching value.

can't you just bind the radiobuttonlist selected value manually?

e.g.
<asp:RadioButtonList ID="RdCounterNotification" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Field_Name") %>'>
   <asp:ListItem Text="Yes" Value="0"></asp:ListItem>
   <asp:ListItem Text="No" Value="1"></asp:ListItem>
</asp:RadioButtonList>
