I have a gridview in one of my aspx pages in which I want one column to be dropdown and one other to be a check box and rest to be text boxes. So when the gridview loads all the columns are read only but when the user hits edit button first column needs to be a dropdown with the the values in it being populated from a table in the database. second column needs to be checkbox. rest as textboxes.

Here is how I have created my gridview in the aspx.
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" AutoGenerateColumns="true" AllowPaging="true" AllowSorting="true"  
            onrowdeleting="GridView1_RowDeleting" onrowediting="GridView1_RowEditing"
                runat="server" AutoGenerateDeleteButton="True" AutoGenerateEditButton="True"
                Width="317px">
                <PagerSettings Position="Top" Mode="NumericFirstLast" />
                <PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" VerticalAlign="Middle" BackColor="#ECF0FC" />
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#284E98" ForeColor="White" Font-Bold="True" />
                <EditRowStyle Wrap="False" />
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#F6F1D4" BorderColor="Black" />
            </asp:GridView>


Code Behind to populate the gridview:
 Dim cmdList As DbCommand = m_database.GetStoredProcCommand("storeproc_name")

Dim listDS As DataSet = m_database.ExecuteDataSet(cmdList)
            Dim iNoOfRowsReturend As Integer = listDS.Tables(0).Rows.Count
            ShowSearchMessage(iNoOfRowsReturend)

            GridView1.DataSource = listDS
            GridView1.DataBind()



Can someone please help me with this.

Thanks

Turn off auto generate columns.

For most of the fields you can get away with a bound column if you're just using the default textboxes.

For your field in question, you're going to want a template column with an itemtemplate that has a label and an edititemtemplate that has a dropdowlist.

Here is some sample code:
