I have gridview with an ASP Boundfield that is tied to a collection of objects. if I set the datafield property to a property of the object, it works perfectly. However, one of the properties of the object is another object and I need to set the datafield to a property of that second object. how can I do that? I tried Datafield="Obj2.Propertyname" where Obj2 is the name of the property of the main object.
