None of the above suggestions worked for me.
What did work was when I moved the call to the DataBound event.
In VB..

Protected Sub FormView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
Dim txtUserID As TextBox = FormView1.FindControl("user_idTextBox")
txtUserID.Text = 34

I am having a similar problem.

I am trying to pass a value from a textbox outside a formview into a textbox in the InsertItemTemplate and have been using the findcontrol...
here's my code:

TextBox test = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("EidTextBox");
EidTextBox.text = Textbox1.text;

Am I wrongly using FindControl. Does anyone know how to make this work?
I am very new to programming in please help me

Much appreciated
even after 3 years,nobody reply? Just do like this

<asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" />

Protected Sub FormView1_PreRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles FormView1.PreRender
Dim oFormView As FormView
oFormView = CType(sender, FormView)
If Not oFormView.Visible Then Exit Sub

Select Case oFormView.CurrentMode
Case FormViewMode.Edit
L.text="find u"
Case FormViewMode.ReadOnly

End Select
End Sub
