Hi,
     I have the following code where I wish to access a DropDownList box on FormView1's Edit Template after the Edit button is clicked on the FormView's Item template, but I get a NullReferenceException when the FormView's mode changes to Edit. Any help appreciated. Thanks Paul.

protected void FormView1_ModeChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (FormView1.CurrentMode == FormViewMode.ReadOnly)
        {  
            laMessageTimes.Text = "Read Only Mode";
        }

        if (FormView1.CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Edit) //Edit Command button clicked
        {
            //ddlClientsE is in FormView1's Edit Template
            DropDownList ClientDDL = (DropDownList)FormView1.FindControl("ddlClientsE");
           
             //NullReferenceException Here!
            ClientDDL.Items.Add("BG");

            laMessageTimes.Text = "Edit Mode";
        }
    }

This means that FindControl is failing to find the ddl from the formview.

CodeCruiser,
                    I have used moved the code into the SQLDataSources DataBinding handler & it now works fine. I will accept your solution as you were my only reply.

Thanks for the help.

Paul.
