    Is there a way to bind the DataTextField property of a dropdownlist to two
    fields instead of just one?
    I'd like to have Lastname, Firstname if possible. Is there a way?

    u can't have 2 values for data text field
    an alternative solution would be in ur sql query , select (firstname + ' '
    + lastname) as name from customers

    and u can have "name" as datatextfield value.

    hope this helps
