Accessing controls within a datalist footer template - ASP.NET General

Hi, I am a bit green when it comes to .net development so please excuse me if this question is obvious or has been asked before... I am trying to programmatically access a label control within a datalist footer template using asp/vb.net. I have been searching through the doentation but can only find reference to creating a footer template programatically, rather than accessing the controls within one. If anyone has done this, or can point me in the direction of some sample code, that would be fantastic! Cheers!...

    Default Accessing controls within a datalist footer template

    Hi,

    I am a bit green when it comes to .net development so
    please excuse me if this question is obvious or has been
    asked before...

    I am trying to programmatically access a label control
    within a datalist footer template using asp/vb.net. I have
    been searching
    through the doentation but can only find reference to
    creating a footer template programatically, rather than
    accessing the controls within one.

    If anyone has done this, or can point me in the direction
    of some sample code, that would be fantastic!

    Cheers!

    Default Re: Accessing controls within a datalist footer template

    try this paul.

    dataList_ItemDataBound (object sender, DataItemEventArgs e) {
    if (e.Item.ItemType == ItemType.Footer) {
    Label l = (Label)e.Cells[0].Controls("labelname");
    l.Text = "New Text";
    }
    }

    I don't have access to a program that I have done this in where you pull
    out the cells and find a control with in them. But I think you will get
    the basic understanding of what has to be done.
