I have a gridview control. Within this there are is a EditTemplate that contains a textbox called "txtDescribeDMG". When I click the Edit link to put the gridview into EditMode I would like to turn the textbox blue (if certain conditions are true) .

 I keep getting Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. error. I am assuming it is because the textbox does not exist at that point in time. My question is how would I achieve this then? Code is below. Any insight would be most appreciated.

  <asp:GridView ID="gvStolenUnits" runat="server" onrowediting="gvStolenUnits_RowEditing" AutoGenerateColumns="False" Width="800px"    OnRowCommand="gvStolenUnits_OnRowCommand" OnRowDataBound="gvStolenUnits_OnRowDataBound" DataSourceID="SqlDataSourcegvStolenUnits"  BackColor="#EEEEEE" DataKeyNames="SeqNo" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px"  BorderColor="#000000" AllowPaging="False"  SelectedRowStyle-BackColor="AliceBlue">
                                       <RowStyle  BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px"   CssClass="UnitsRowStyle" BackColor="White" />
                                            <HeaderStyle CssClass="UnitsHeaderStyle" />
                                            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="Cornsilk" BorderColor="#990000" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="2px"  CssClass="UnitsRowStyle" />
                                          
                                            <EmptyDataTemplate>

You can use the RowCreated or RowDataBound events to perform this action. Compare the e.Row.RowIndex to the GridView.EditIndex so that your code only run your code if the bound/created row is the row being edited.

Use Row Data bound event of grid view  

protected void gvStolenUnits_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
    {
       if (e.Row.RowState == DataControlRowState.Edit)
       {
           TextBox txtDDMG = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("txtDDMG ");
           if( txtDDMG  != null)
           {
              txtDDMG.ForeColor = Color.Blue;
              txtDDMG.ReadOnly = false;
            }
       }
    }
}
