you have FIRST to check of the value is DBNull.Value before trying to convert it.
or make sure the value is not dbnull.value in the first place, but always a "integer" value.

if ( e.keys(0) != DBNull.Value) 
{
  // do the cast as needed
}
else
{
  // value is null... what to do here?
}

simply check selectedID for DB.Null before assign to your integer variable
if IsDBNull(selectedID ) then
''do something 
end if
