Retreive Values From Dynamic Data Details View

I am working on someone's asp.net page which is a basic DynamicData page with DetailsView.  Since there are no templates on this DetailsView I am not sure how to retrieve values from it in my code behind.  I would normally use FindControl but since everything is autgenerated I am not sure how to go about this.  Please advise.

I would use the ItemCreated function of the DetailsView, here is a little sample to get you started.

Dim dv As DetailsView = CType(sender, DetailsView)
Dim userID As String = dv.DataItem("userID")

'loop through each field in the detailsview
For Each dr As DetailsViewRow In dv.Controls(0).Controls
    If dr.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
           'do something to the rows here
    End If
Next

HI There,

The details view has events that your are able to access.  Start here:
