access dataview elements by name

I currently have a Dataview that returns a single row (after applying a rowfilter). I can access the fields with Dataview1(0)(n) and this works fine.

I'd much rather access the fields by column name to make changing the code in future easier, but I can't figure out how.

Any suggestions welcome!

Hi Ben:
Try the following:

        Dim dr As DataRowView = DataView1.Item(0)
        TextBox1.Text = dr.Item("FieldName").ToString
