Index was out of range.  DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value

In the VB behind a GridView I've got the DataBound method below.

The .aspx page loads as long as a row happens to already be in Edit mode, but if I click Cancel or Save, I get:
Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: index
on row 2 below.
It seems that the "EditIndex" is Nothing when it's not in Edit mode and throwing the out of range error.  How can I avoid the error when the GridView is not in Edit mode?
Protected Sub GridView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GridView1.DataBound
    Dim iReqID As Integer = CType(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value, Integer)        'CInt(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value)
    Dim iModifiedBy As String = iUserName
    Call SendModifiedByToRequisition(iModifiedBy, iReqID)
End Sub

Can you put the code that executes in an "if" statement?

I'm not a VB.NET person, but it would be something like this:

if GridView1.EditIndex != Nothing then
   Dim iReqID = ...etc.
   Dim iModifiedBy = etc.
   Call etc..
Else -- don't do anything..

Actualy EditIndex should be -1 if not in Edit mode, so you could try:
Protected Sub GridView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GridView1.DataBound
    If GridView1.EditIndex <> -1 Then
        Dim iReqID As Integer = CType(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value, Integer)        'CInt(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value)
       Dim iModifiedBy As String = iUserName
       Call SendModifiedByToRequisition(iModifiedBy, iReqID)
    End If
End Sub

Oh, that's right.  The EditIndex is -1 when it's in Edit Mode.
