Adding Unbound Items to Data Bound DropDownLists

The problem: On an ASP.NET web page, you have a data bound DropDownList. You want to add an item saying “Please select…” or similar.

The solution: Set the AppendDataBoundItems property to True and add the items you need in the DataBinding event handler for the DropDownList.
