Gridview/Formview - ASP.Net Page Lifecycle

I have a page with a label (label1) in a formview( FormView1) and a label (label2) in a gridview(MyGridView).

The gridview label gets its value from the formview ( see code below) on the page_load event.

everything works fine on page_load except  the gridview label shows the previous page's value. How do I ensure the formview is updated first and the gridview then reads the updated formview label?

Thanks!

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
FormViewRow row = FormView1.Row
Label formlbl = (Label)row.FindControl("label1")
GridViewRow grdrow = MyGridView.HeaderRow;
Label grdlbl = (Label)grdrow.FindControl("label2")

grdlbl.text = formlbl.text
}

I'm afraid your suggested change returns the error 'System.Web.UI.Control' does not contain a definition for 'Text' on the changed line of code ...any more  thoughts on how I can get around this? Thanks!
