A column in my detailsview contains an id, i'd like to use this id as part of a link on the page.
I've been messing about with a label trying to get this value but am falling short...
code behind
label1.text = detailsview. ???????

Hi QPR,

I am just guessing what you really need.
Would this work for you:
label1.text = DetailsView1.Rows[0].Cells[0].Text

Regards,
Jan

I think the [0] should be (0) ?
This way I don't get "squiggles"

However when I use it I now get
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException was unhandled by user code
  Message="Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: index"
  ParamName="index"
  Source="mscorlib"

Is this code being executed after the data is bound to the detailsview?
vitjan posted C# code, you must be using VB.NET?

"Index was out of range" tells me that either the Rows or Cells Collection is empty. This could be because you have placed this code before any databinding code.

You can check the count of the collections like this
if (DetailsView1.Rows.Count > 0 && DetailsView1.Rows[0].Cells.Count > 0)

I have no "code behind" other than what I am trying to do with the lable.
When is a detailsview databound?
Which event should I use to make sure that I only try to populate the label when the detailsview is populated?
 <asp:DetailsView ID="DetailsView1" runat="server" BackColor="#DEBA84"
            BorderColor="#DEBA84" BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="3" CellSpacing="2"
            DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" Height="50px" Width="488px" AutoGenerateRows="False" DataKeyNames="propno">

Solved, the problem was that when I launched from VS2005 there was no querystring data.
This data was needed to populate the detailsview.
I changed the start page when launching and by navigating to the page in question (with querystring data) I was able to get it to work.

And yes vb.net not C# - sorry I should have specified.
