Dear All,

I am using Gridview in c# for my web app. I created a Dynamically Dropdown using Dyanamically Created Template.

but i am not able to get the value of dropdown to store in DB.

So, how can i get the value of dropdown from the each column.

i am using ....

 public class AddTemplateToGridView : ITemplate
        ListItemType _type;
        string _colName;
        public AddTemplateToGridView(ListItemType type, string colname)
            _type = type;
            _colName = colname;
        void ITemplate.InstantiateIn(System.Web.UI.Control container)
            switch (_type)
                case ListItemType.Item:
                    DropDownList ht = new DropDownList();
                    ht.ID = "ht"+_colName; 
                    ht.Width = 50;
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("Select", "Select"));
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("P", "P"));
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("A", "A"));
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("H", "H"));
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("S", "S"));
                    ht.Items.Add(new ListItem("L", "L"));
                    ht.DataBinding += new EventHandler(ht_DataBinding);
        void ht_DataBinding(object sender, EventArgs e)
            DropDownList ddl = (DropDownList)sender;
            GridViewRow container = (GridViewRow)ddl.NamingContainer;

Function for create row and column :

private void loadDynamicGrid()
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        DataColumn dcol = new DataColumn(NAME, typeof(System.String));
        int year = DateTime.Now.Year;
        int month = DateTime.Now.Month;
        int days = DateTime.DaysInMonth(year, month);
        string s = "select name from empl where id='" + Session["user"].ToString() + "'";
        SqlDataAdapter ad = new SqlDataAdapter(s, c.getcon());
        DataSet ds = new DataSet();
        if (ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count != 0)
            string report_person = "Select name from empl where report_to_whom='" + ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][0].ToString() + "'";
            SqlDataAdapter ad1 = new SqlDataAdapter(report_person, c.getcon());
            DataSet ds1 = new DataSet();


            for (int nIndex = 0; nIndex < ds1.Tables[0].Rows.Count; nIndex++) // FOR CREATE A NUMBER OF ROW 
                DataRow drow = dt.NewRow();
                drow[NAME] = ds1.Tables[0].Rows[nIndex][0].ToString();
        foreach (DataColumn col in dt.Columns)
            //Declare the bound field and allocate memory for the bound field.
            BoundField bfield = new BoundField();
            //Initalize the DataField value.
            bfield.DataField = col.ColumnName;
            //Initialize the HeaderText field value.
            bfield.HeaderText = col.ColumnName;
            //Add the newly created bound field to the GridView.
        for (int k = 1; k <= days; k++) // FOR CREATE A COLUMN DYNAMICALLY
            BoundField fname = new BoundField();
            TemplateField lname = new TemplateField();
            lname.HeaderText = d + k;
            lname.ItemTemplate = new AddTemplateToGridView(ListItemType.Item, d+k);
        GridView1.DataSource = dt;

so, when i click on button i want to store the selected value from that Dropdown.
