    I have come across a problem using the formview with an objectdatasource. When using an object datasource a piece of code like
    Button test = (Button)frmvDetails.Controls[0].FindControl("EditButton");
    test.Enabled = false;

    will generate an error 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object'. Set the formview to reference an SQLDataSource and it is no problem.

    I have noticed that if create a new formview and attach it to objectdatasource it will not generate the template code as it does with the SQL code. This is not a problem as it is just a little coding but not being able to reference controls is a problem.

    For what I want to do if found the SQLdatasource a problem and the objectdatasource worked really well.

    Can anybody help
