Sort order on drop down lists


I've created a series of drop downs. The parent on contains ~150 items. These items are not sorted alphabetically as they are in the source list. Is there some setting or is this an issue w/ the code?

In the file X method CreateChildControls()
if (!listNotFound)
            // populate it with the values from the central master page list.
            DataView dv = new DataView(list.Items.GetDataTable());
Add a line
            dv.Sort = dv.Table.Columns[0].ColumnName;
That should take care of the sort order of the parent.
