GridView

Hello,

I am trying to create a ItemTemplate at runtime for a ComponentArt
Grid.

This GridView works in a very similar way to the Asp.Net 2.0 GridView
so the implementation method should be the same.

When I don't use the ItemTemplate everything works fine.

However, when I use the ItemTemplate I get the following error:

"Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference
not set to an instance of an object."

On the code line

lCollaborator.Text = tcCollaborator.DataItem("Name").ToString &
tcCollaborator.DataItem("City").ToString

I think my problem is really the binding method.

Could someone please tell me what might be wrong? I also tried using
the Asp.Net 2.0 GridView and I am getting the same problems.

I post my VB.NET code. Please, fell free to answer in VB.NET or C#.
