I can't seem to set the text property of a label in a gridview FooterRow.  Stepping through with the debugger reveals I have found the correct control and I don't get any errors, but the label does not appear.  I assume it has something to do with viewstate and postback or something similiar.

The Try/Catch block is where I am attempting to set the label text.
Protected Sub InsertNewEmail(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim newdictionary As ListDictionary = New ListDictionary()
        Dim EmailAddress As String = CType(grdEmails.FooterRow.FindControl("txtNewEmailAddress1"), TextBox).Text
        Dim EmailType As String = CType(grdEmails.FooterRow.FindControl("ddlEmailTypes1"), DropDownList).SelectedValue
        Dim NewEmailAddress As String = EmailAddress
        Dim NewEmailTypeID As String = EmailType
        Dim NewPersonID As String = PersonID
        Dim NewUserID As Guid = UserID
        newdictionary.Add("EmailAddress", NewEmailAddress)
        newdictionary.Add("EmailTypeID", NewEmailTypeID)
        newdictionary.Add("PersonID", NewPersonID)
        newdictionary.Add("UserID", NewUserID)
        Try
            ldsPersonEmails.Insert(newdictionary)
        Catch ex As Data.SqlClient.SqlException
            Dim ExceptionLabel As Label = CType(grdEmails.FooterRow.FindControl("lblException"), Label)
            ExceptionLabel.Text = "Bad User!  Bad!"
        End Try
        grdEmails.DataBind()
    End Sub

you problem is your  grdEmails.DataBind() that redraw the grdEmails
set your label outside the drid or try this

 

 Try

            grdEmails.DataBind()
 
        Catch ex As Data.SqlClient.SqlException
            Dim ExceptionLabel As Label = CType(grdEmails.FooterRow.FindControl("lblException"), Label)
            ExceptionLabel.Text = "Bad User!  Bad!"
