    DetailsViews Update sql with a template dropdownlist and multi line text box

    I am using a details view to drill down to single records from a gridview on a previous page. Inside the details view I have converted 2 fields to template fields and changed the controls from the default textboxes to one being a dropdownlist and the other a text box set to multi-line to replicate a <textarea> box. I am having a difficult of a time getting any update statement to work when configuring the data source on the detailview.

    How do I reference the selected value in the dropdown list control and the entered text in the multiline text vox to be able to update the appropriate fields in the associated table?

    <asp:DetailsView ID="DetailsView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="False" CellPadding="4"
    DataSourceID="DetailComplianceWI" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None" Height="50px"
    Width="100%" DataKeyNames="ID">

    <HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
    <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="DetailComplianceWI" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionStringCompliance %>"
    ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionStringCompliance.ProviderName %>"
    SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [tblCompliance] WHERE ([ID] = ?)">
    <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" Type="Int32" />

    I enable two way data binding and then made sure to delcare the update parameters to be the controlID and Selected value and now it works.
