I used the data DetailsView control to quickly make an updateable details view.  It works great.
However I would like to referece an field that is being displayed.

I can do it wity a view: GridView2.SelectedRow.Cells.Item(1).Text
But how do I do the same with a detailsview??

//each row corresponds to a BoundField on the DetailsView definition
 //Row(1) is the second field:  it renders a cell that has a
 //textbox in it.
 TextBox txt= (TextBox)DetailsView1.Rows[1].Cells[1].Controls[0];

 //if you placed your controls within ItemTemplates then you would just
 //call the FindControl with the ID you gave that control, e.g, if you
 //had placed in the markup
 //<asp:HiddenField ID="key1" runat="server" />
 //Then you would refer to it like this:

  HiddenField  hid= (HiddenField)detailsView1.FindControl("key1");
