Find Templete field Gridview

HI

I'm trying to hide or display a template gridview button depending on whether the results of a session matches the logged in user.

I'm not doing something right as it can't find  ' CancelApt ' when I run the code.

Protected Sub GVCurrent_RowDataBound(sender As Object, e As GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GVCurrentRowDataBound



[code]            Dim CancelApt As Button

            CancelApt = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("btnCancelApt"), Button)

                     
                If Session("UserID")  = User.Identity.Name Then

                    CancelApt.Visible = True
 Else

                    CancelApt.Visible = False
                End If
