Access Label in datagrid within DataList

P: n/a
This seems like it should be simple, but everytime I access the label,
it's text property is always set to "". Here is the code I am using:
private void dgrComputer_ItemDataBound(object sender,
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e) {
if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item ||
e.Item.ItemType ==
ListItemType.AlternatingItem) {
Label lbl =
if (lbl.Text == "True") {
e.Item.BackColor = Color.Green;

else {
e.Item.BackColor = Color.Red;
I am trying to do conditional processing to change the background color

of the row, I can access the label, but its text property is always set

to "". I have also tried accessing it by using
e.Item.Cells[0].FindControl and a multitude of other different ways but

always with the same results. Does anyone have ideas? this is driving
me up the wall.
thank you
