Hello all

I have a gridview with an edit button on a item template

The edit template is supposed to hide the gridview and bring another one up

However I need the value of one of the fields in the initial gridview (username)

Below is an example of the initial gridview

[username]   [ x]  [x] [x] [x]    //Headers

[value]

the item template is a label but I am getting a null exception error when I try to retrieve it. Can someone shed some light on this

If you are trying to retrieve the value after going into edit mode, it is normal to have a null exception.
You have to get the value before page postback (going into edit mode);
two ways to do this;
- you can store the value on the ViewState or session
- you can pass the value as a parameter to page...
