The way I showed is better, because it takes advantage of the fact that SqlDataSource works with the DataView by default, and thus each DataItem can be safely cast to a DataRowView.

On the other hand, DataBinder.Eval uses reflection to determine whether the DataItem should be a DataRowView or a DbDataRecord. Reflection is a rather slow process, so it's worthwhile to avoid it if you can.
Ya I just found out the thank you button exists!
