Many thanks. Is there any event similar to OnDataBound for a formview?

I suppose you could use the Databound and Databinding event.

The Databound event fires after the control binds to a source. So you could use this event to retrieve the datarowview like this.

 protected void FormView1_DataBinding(object sender, EventArgs e)
            FormView frm = (FormView)sender;

            DataRowView drv = (DataRowView)frm.DataItem;
            for (int i = 0; i < drv.DataView.Table.Columns.Count; i++)
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(drv[i].ToString()))

Open in new window

You can access a control like this:
Label Label4 = (Label)FormView1.FindControl("Label4");
Label4.Text = price.ToString("c");

protected void ItemsFormView_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
       DataRowView dataRow = ((DataRowView)FormView1.DataItem);
        if (Convert.ToInt16(dataRow["ClStk"]) <= 0)
            Label lbl = (Label)FormView1.FindControl("lblStock");
                 lbl.CssClass = "changefont";
