Your question is not really clear. Could you explain a bit more on what you are trying to achieve?
And are you getting any errors?

in my code behind PopulateDetailsPanel function I am populating the textboxes and the dropdownlists with the GetEmployeeDetails function. The data is coming through and the textboxes are being populated. How do I populate the dropdownlists with this data:


ddlGenderID.SelectedValue = EmployeeDetails.GenderID.ToString();

would selectedvalue populate the dropdownlist with the value of EmployeeDetails.GenderID.ToString();

I see your ddl isn't having any DataSource. So first you will have to populate it with the Gender values may be hard-coded or from database. Then only you can set the value like:
ddlGenderID.SelectedValue = EmployeeDetails.GenderID.ToString();
