1. Are you talking of ASP.NET or Winforms?
2. Where are you going to 'click A'? Is there a dropdown outside grid with alphabets?
3. Whats the point of mentioning dropdown in grid?

What I am understanding from your question is that you need "alphabetical filtering" in your gridview. I don't think displaying all the 26 alphabets in a dropdown menu is a good idea because it is not very user-friendly.

Displaying all the 26 alphabets A-Z is a better and user-friendly way of going forward so that anybody can just click the alphabet and all the rows will be filtered based on the selection of the alphabet.

Here is the complete solution (with source code): http://www.strivingprogrammers.com/boards/t/276/how-to-create-a-z-link-alphabetical-filtering-for-gridview-data.aspx[^]

Hope it helps...
