How to hide an ASP.net Lable if GridView or ObjectDataSource is empty

andrewmilner asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-27
Okay so I have an ObjectDataSource (ObjectDS) and a GridView (GridView1) in my ASP.net vb project.

There are various details views and things below the grid view whos visible states are changed to true when the GridView selected index is changed.

I also have an asp.net label that contains text of 'Select an item to view Details'.

I need a way to hide this if the GridView or ObjectDS is empty.  I know you can have an empty template of the Gridview to state No data found but I also need to hide this label.

Hope you can help.
