access web controls from a code-behind page in

You have to create a control variable with the same name as the id of the control in your .aspx file in the general declaration for your code behind class:

Public Class CodeBehind : Inherits Page


Public ItemsGrid As DataGrid


Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal Sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

   If Not IsPostback Then

      ItemsGrid.DataSource = GetMyDataSource()


   End If

End Sub

End Class
