    Button btn = (Button)e.Row.FindControl("YourButtonID");


    Button btn = (Button)e.Row.Cells[5].Controls[0];

    I tried youe first code:

    There I had to convert the GridView Button into template field. and if i do so then some of mine RowCommand code not work.

    Then I wrote your second line of code like below :

     while (Global.reader.Read())
                    if (Global.reader["Click"].Equals(true))
                        Button btnSold = (Button)e.Row.Cells[9].Controls[0];
                        btnSold.Text = "Clicked";
                        btnSold.CommandName = "Clicked";
                        Button btnSold = (Button)e.Row.Cells[9].Controls[0];
                        btnSold.Text = "Click";
                        btnSold.CommandName = "Click";

    Here, I am reading the status dynamically from the Status column and accordingly I am trying to change the Button text... but not working.. :-(

    Can you provide any additional code or markup(page) related to this issue? i want to view your GridView html and check out them.

    At the same time, in order to help us to understand your issue better.
