I have a dropdownlist inside a gridview,the drop list should populate from database and default value should be SELECT.

when i Click Save button it should check all the dropdownlist values. If any one is still SELECT it should prompt error select any values.
When i normaly check without inside gridview it works fine and not inside gridview.

I have attached my codings below.

Help in this regard.

TabIndex="1" Font-Names="Times New Roman" Font-Size="Smaller" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center">
<Columns >
<asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="true" HeaderText="Details"
SelectText="Details" />
<asp:CheckBox ID="chkHeader" runat="server" Checked="true" />
<asp:CheckBox ID="chkRow" runat="server" Checked="true" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="Vin" HeaderText="VinNumber" />

<asp:ListItem Text="SELECT" Value="0" />

$(document).ready(function () {
$("[id$=btnSave]").click(function () {
if ($("[id$=ddlSalesPerson]").val() != 0) {
