Hello experts,

I am needing to a record from my DataRowView to make some calculations and then bind the result to a label control.
How do I achieve this if the control being used is a formview control.

In a datalist control, I do the following;-
 string DOORPLAN = ((DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem)["DOORPLAN"].ToString();

in the ItemDataBound event of the control

protected void DataList1_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataListItemEventArgs e)
             string DOORPLAN = ((DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem)["DOORPLAN"].ToString();
             ///do stuff then bind result to control

What is the equivalent for formviews

does the formview have something like this eg templates?:
 <asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1" DataKeyNames="PhotoID">
          <asp:Label ID="CaptionLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Caption") %>' Font-Size="32pt" /><br />
