I need to know how to find a hyperlink control in a datalist in my code behind. The following code works great with a GridView:

   Protected Sub GridView2_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView2.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            If Not User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                Dim h As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("HyperLink1"), HyperLink)
                Dim i As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("HyperLink30"), HyperLink)
                Dim j As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("HyperLink2"), HyperLink)
                If h IsNot Nothing Then
                    h.Visible = False
                End If
                If i IsNot Nothing Then
                    i.Visible = False
                End If
                If j IsNot Nothing Then
                    j.Visible = False
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Can someone convert this code for me in a DataList. Or please respond with what the code would be in a DataList.

This is what I have come up with so far:

Protected Sub DataList2_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataListItemEventArgs) Handles DataList2.ItemDataBound

        If e.Item.DataItem = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            If Not User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                Dim h As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink1"), HyperLink)
                Dim i As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink30"), HyperLink)
                Dim j As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink2"), HyperLink)
                If h IsNot Nothing Then
                    h.Visible = False
                End If
                If i IsNot Nothing Then
                    i.Visible = False
                End If
                If j IsNot Nothing Then
                    j.Visible = False
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

But I receive this error:

Operator '=' is not defined for type 'DataRowView' and type 'DataControlRowType'.

Protected Sub DataList2_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataListItemEventArgs) Handles DataList2.ItemDataBound

        If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Then

            If Not User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                Dim h As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink1"), HyperLink)
                Dim i As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink30"), HyperLink)
                Dim j As HyperLink = DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("HyperLink2"), HyperLink)

Tried different syntax with intellisense until correct one was produced.
