All,

I am using C#, ASP.NET 2.0, Visual Web Developer 2005.

I have been trying for a while to set the value of a textbox (Person_Signing_Off) inside a DetailsView (DetailsView1) inside a LoginVIew(LoginView1) to the value of the LoginName(LoginName1). I keep getting a null exception error, which I believe to be because it can not find the TextBox inside the DetailsView. I have tried several fixes with no luck.

I am trying to set the Person_Signing_Off as the LogInName. My code has it just setting it to "test" right now. It errors out on the  "if (signer.Text == "")" in the code behind page.

Code Behind Page:

 protected void DetailsView1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        DetailsView myDetails = (DetailsView)LoginView1.FindControl("DetailsView1");

        TextBox signer = (TextBox)myDetails.FindControl("Person");
        if (signer.Text == "")
        {
            signer.Text = "test";
        }
        if (myDetails.CurrentMode == DetailsViewMode.Edit)
        {
            foreach (DetailsViewRow dvr in myDetails.Rows)
            {
                if (dvr.Cells.Count.Equals(2) && dvr.Cells[1].HasControls())
                {
                    Control ctrl = dvr.Cells[1].Controls[0];

                    if (ctrl is TextBox)
                    {
                        TextBox txt = ctrl as TextBox;

                        txt.Width = 400;
                     
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

Here is the aspx page:
