I have web form with a GridView and a few controls in the GridView. I have a DropDownList in the EdtItemTemplate of the gridview.

I am needing to bind this DropDownList with some method in my CodeBehind File.

The problem I am facing is this. Since the Control is sitting in the EditItemTemplate, using the FindControl("MyControlID") does not seem to work in any of the GridView events, it returns null, in other words it cannot seem to find the control, unless I use the OnRowUpdating event, but I cannot use this event as the Control needs to be Data binded before that.

Is there anyway I can use the <%# Bind("MyMethodName") %> to bind the control?
