You will not get the dropdown list name in Intellisence.The reason is that ,it is an Embedded contol inside the Gridview and this facility in not provided from the Micrososft.

If you want to acces those Control,please follow the following steps :
Let the name of gridview be " grdView1 "

1> Declare a new variable as Dropdonlist .

e.g. DropDownList d=new DropDownList();

2> Then use the method "findControl()" to get the access to the resource.

e.g. d=(DropDownList)grdView1.FindControl('name_of_the_Dropdownlist_to which_you_want_access_to');

3>Now this (dropdown list) d will get the value of the control (i.e. Dropdownlist in this case )embedded inside GridView.
