Default Converting a DataGrid.DataSource to a DataView

I am trying to convert a DataGrid's DataSource to a DataView during the preRender event of the same DataGrid. My "catch" gets an InvalidCastException (Specified Cast is not valid). The ultimate point of the conversion is to get a count of the number of records in the DataGrid. My single line of code:

Me.labTest.Text =
CType(DG1.DataSource, DataView).count.ToString() + " records found"

Can anyone help me with this?
