moving sql variable values from a aspx page to local varibles

I am using a SqlDataSource (in asp 2.0 aspx page)  with a Gridview control, I would like to PrePopulate  the textboxes of a formview controls (Insert mode) whith the results (variable values) from the  Gridview.  I’m using C#.

SELECT  userId, rate, Lname, Fname
FROM   empl

I want to populate the following varibles in my aspx page. And prepopulat the textBoxes in a FormView control in Insert mode

Int    UserID
Int   Payrate
String  Lname
String  Fname

Can some one show me how to do this?

this is how you can manually bind a control or make your own form view

this is just with a repeater, there is a button that does the updating to give you an idea, this could even just be an html table with some server controls...

        <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" OnItemCommand="Repeater1_ItemCommand"  >
             <asp:Label ID="label1" Text='<%# Bind("ProductID") %>' runat="server" Width="50"  ></asp:Label>
             <asp:CheckBox id="chk" runat="server" Text="Discontinued?" Checked='<%# System.Convert.ToBoolean(Eval("Discontinued")) %>' Width="50"/>
             <asp:TextBox id="textbox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Description") %>'
             <asp:Button id="btnUpdate" Runat="server" Text="Update" CommandName="Update" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("productID") %>' Font-Size="12px" Width="50"></asp:Button>
             <br />

    public void Repeater1_ItemCommand(object source, RepeaterCommandEventArgs e)
        Int32 id = System.Convert.ToInt32(((Label)e.Item.FindControl("label1")).Text);
        Int16 check = System.Convert.ToInt16(((CheckBox)e.Item.FindControl("chk")).Checked);
        TextBox tb = (TextBox )e.Item.FindControl("textbox");
        //update the db
        string strcon = SqlDataSource1.ConnectionString;
        System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection sqlCon = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(strcon);
        System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand sqlCmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("update products set discontinued = @check,description = @desc  where productid = @id", sqlCon);
        sqlCmd.Parameters.Add("@id", SqlDbType.Int).Value = id;
        sqlCmd.Parameters.Add("@check", SqlDbType.Int).Value = check;
        sqlCmd.Parameters.Add("@desc ", SqlDbType.Int).Value = tb.Text;
            //rebind the repeater
        catch(Exception me)
