Button DropDown c#

I am trying to create a button that allows the user to change how the button works once clicked.

I have two operations defined currently,

Mode1 and Mode 2

The Default would be Mode 1

And the text of the button would say Mode 1

When the user clicks the button while the button says Mode 1 then Mode 1's operations execute.

I am trying to have a dropdown that looks like it is attached to the button , and this drown down allows the user to change the ButtonMode.

need some help in trying to resolve this. Right now to keep my project moving I just put two buttons on the web form

<asp:Button ID="EditSingleFile"

<asp:Button ID="EditAllFilesIncludeSubDir"
  runat="server"
  Text="Edit All Files Inc Sub-Directories"
  OnClick="EditAllFilesIncludeSubDir_Click"
  Visible="false" />

In the codebehind for the page:
protected void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) {
  if(DrowDownList1.SelectedIndex == 0) {
    EditSingleFile.Visible = true;
    EditAllFilesIncludeSubDir.Visible = false;
  }
  else {
    EditSingleFile.Visible = false;
    EditAllFilesIncludeSubDir.Visible = true;
  }
}
