Please share your code snippets where you actually biding data with grid.
Have you tried debugging?
Are you able to fetch data from Database?

There are 3 simple step.
1. On DropDown List SelectedIndex Changed, take the selected values
2. Call you back end database based on the selected value for the dropdown list. Save the data in a dataset or where ever you want.
3. Bind it with Grid view.

You can access controls inside grid by using FindControl method.
Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control[^]
Accessing Different Controls inside the GridView[^]

You can also just get the control from the gridview on postback, and get it's value that way.

its not working
You can access the listbox through id of the control(listbox) from itemtemplate.

c# code:

ListBox myListBox = (ListBox)gridviewname.rows.FindControl("ListBox1");

hope this will help.

create another method(pass aurgument selectedvalue to the method) and call it from selectedindex event and also provide commandname to gridview control and in editcommand event get the findcontrol :)
