Can someone show me the code to  prepopulate a textbox in a FormView Control in insert mode,  In c#.  (using  ASP 2.0 and  VWD )I have  the following code but it doesn’t work.

This is what i have:

protected void nameTextBox_TextChanged1(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
        TextBox  fnam =
       (TextBox)FormView2.Row.FindControl("nameTextBox");

        fnam.Text = Label3.Text;
    }
   


 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource4" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionString %>"
            DeleteCommand="DELETE FROM [tesconntes] WHERE [myid] = @myid" InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [tesconntes] ([name], [lname]) VALUES (@name, @lname)"
            SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [tesconntes]" UpdateCommand="UPDATE [tesconntes] SET [name] = @name, [lname] = @lname WHERE [myid] = @myid">
            <DeleteParameters>
                <asp:Parameter Name="myid" Type="Int32" />
            </DeleteParameters>
            <UpdateParameters>
                <asp:Parameter Name="name" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="lname" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="myid" Type="Int32" />
            </UpdateParameters>
            <InsertParameters>
                <asp:Parameter Name="name" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="lname" Type="String" />
            </InsertParameters>
        </asp:SqlDataSource>

You can do it in 2 ways
//Code
//1-Using the ItemCreated event of the formview

 void FormView2_ItemCreated(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (FormView2.CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Insert)
        {
           TextBox  fnam = (TextBox)FormView2.Row.FindControl("nameTextBox");
            if (fnam != null)
            {
                fnam.Text=Label3.Text;
            }
        }
    }

//Or
//2-Using The formview's ItemInserting

    void FormView2_ItemInserting(object sender, FormViewInsertEventArgs e)
    {
       TextBox  fnam = (TextBox)FormView2.Row.FindControl("nameTextBox");
        if (fnam != null)
        {
           fnam.Text=Label3.Text;
        }
    }
