Remarks

Use the SelectedValue property to determine the data key value for the current record. To retrieve the actual System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataKey object that represents the data key for the record, use the DataKey property.

This property is the default property that a ControlParameter object binds to at run time. For more information, see ControlValuePropertyAttribute, ControlParameter, and Using Parameters with Data Source Controls for Filtering.
