I created a formview that uses an ObjectDataSource. After the insert is done I need to to retrieve the ID. I know how to do this using SQLDataSource but am not sure if it is possible using ObjectDataSource.

Using SQLDataSource, the output parameter (of the datasource) retrieves the ID using the return value of the stored procedure. I'm not sure how I would duplicate that with ObjectDataSource as the ObjectDataSource calls a method not a stored procedure.

Return the value from your method and then get it as e.ReturnValue

protected void ObjectDataSource1_Inserted(object sender, ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
    {
        e.ReturnValue // it's an object
    }
