use code to bind a GridView templatre column

I have the following two GridVidew template columns
The first binds to EmloyeeName but the second has to bind to various
other columns. What code would I use to bind that column programatically?

              <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Employee Name" Visible="true">
                                <asp:Label ID="lblEmployeeName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("EmployeeName")%>' Visible="true"></asp:Label>
                      <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="T2" Visible="true">
                                <asp:Textbox ID="T2" runat="server"  Visible="true" Width="10"></asp:Textbox>

Hi Murray,

Based on the datatype and control you are targeting (Textbox, checkbox, radio) there are different attributes you will have to bind. Here it is a Textbox hence we will bind Text property. Please refer to:

<asp:Textbox ID="T2" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("SecondColumnName")%>' Visible="true" Width="10"></asp:Textbox>
