Hi ksfok,

I did this for GridView but I assume it is the same with all other grid like controls.
What you need is to handle the RowDataBound event for your grid. Then in RowDataBound event handler you can cast e.Row.DataItem to class from collection bounded to the grid. For example:

void mygrid_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
   MyClass myInstance = (MyClass)e.Row.DataItem;
   //TODO: do something with myInstance

I hope this is what you need.
