QuestionDrop down list not populating [modified] Pin

I have a drop down list (not attached to my datagrid anymore for those of you on the saga with me). I just want to populate this plain old drop-down box. But I can't get it to populate. I could get it to populate when I had it inside a datagrid, so I'm sure it's something easy.

Here is my asp code:
<asp:dropdownlist id=ddPartType style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 104px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 48px" tabIndex=1 runat="server" Width="144px" Height="24px" DataSource="<%# GetPartTypes()%>" DataTextField="ptDescription" DataValueField="ptId" EnableViewState="True" AutoPostBack="True"><br />
			</asp:dropdownlist>


All I'm doing is calling GetPartTypes. Okay, here's that code (C#)
public DataSet GetPartTypes()<br />
		{<br />
			ds3 = new DataSet();<br />
			ds3= SqlHelper.ExecuteDataset(this.connectionString, "dbo.GetDescriptions", null);	<br />
			dt3 = ds3.Tables[0];<br />
			ds3.Tables[0].TableName="PartTypes";<br />
			ddPartType.DataSource = ds3;<br />
			ddPartType.DataBind();<br />
			return ds3;<br />
<br />
		}


This calls a stored procedure, GetDescriptions. I know this code works because it executes in Query Analyzer. It's just basically return the descriptions and order by description.

Going through the debugger it's like the code never gets called. So I delibrately called it in PageLoad and got a stack overflow.

BLECH!

Follow up: Okay I can get it to populate if I put the code in the PageLoad. Is this the only way to do it? Or is there something similiar to what I was trying to do?
