    The scenario is I have a Gridview on a tab control.  I added a dropdown to filter the gridview so the selcted value is a parameter on the gridview datasource.  My problem is that I ge thtis error when the DropDown is located on the tab that contains the gridview.  If I place it outside the tab control it works just fine.  This is all being done in MS Visual Web Designer 2010 Express with  VB.NET.  Any assistance would be gretaly apprecieated.

    Any time the compiler can't find a control in a page, it's searching in the wrong container and/or the scope of the .findcontrol is wrong.

    You sometimes have to start at the page level object then peel the onion.
