dynamically set databind expression?

I have a GridView with a TemplateField
 <asp:TemplateField>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblDisplayItem" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Description") %>' />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="txtEditItem" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Description") %>' />
                            </EditItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>

Is it possible to set the '<%# Eval("Description") %>' to another field at run time?

Any help appreciated, Thanks

try adding DataBinding event to this Label control, than in that event try this:

private void lc_DataBinding(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            var lc = (Label) sender;
            var container = (RepeaterItem)lc.NamingContainer;

            lc.Text = DataBinder.Eval(container.DataItem, "SOME NEW FIELD NAME");
        }

hope it helped...
