I am using the footer as my Add Item row. I need to get a reference to a dropdownlist control and set a selected item. I need to do this anytime the page is rebound. DataGrid.Findcontrol("cboAddCBO")  returns Nothing. It seems there is no EditItem index associated with the footer either. The only time I can get a reference to the footer item is when I click a button in the footer row (using the ItemCommand event). Surely there is a way to get a reference to the footer row another way......
