Here you go:
Nesting the DropDownList to Gridview in ASP.NET 2.0(C#)[^]

It would be something like:
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
categoryid = Int32.Parse(e.Row.Cells[0].Text);
expression = "categoryid = " + categoryid;
DropDownList ddl = (DropDownList)e.Row.FindControl("dropdownlist1");
DataRow[] rows = ds.Tables[0].Select(expression);

foreach (DataRow row in rows)
DataRow newrow = mytable.NewRow();
newrow["productid"] = row["productid"];
newrow["productname"] = row["productname"];
ddl.DataSource = mytable;
ddl.DataTextField = "productname";
ddl.DataValueField = "productid";
