Getting to the instance of your object when using ObjectDataSource

Sometimes when using ObjectDataSource you need to have access to the object that ObjectDataSource is using. Maybe you have a custom constructor you need to call, maybe you need to hook up an event handler, etc.

Once again, ASP.Net 2.0 comes through.

The ObjectCreated event on ObjectDataSource:

protected void ObjectDataSource1_ObjectCreated(object sender, ObjectDataSourceEventArgs e)


BLL bll = (BLL)e.ObjectInstance;

bll.haveToSetThis = "not really";


You should also look at ObjectCreating event since can be used to actually create the instance of the object.
