Default missing directive with simple datagrid

I have created a web form and added a datagrid by copy-paste this:
<asp:datagrid id="myDataGrid" runat="server"/>

On the Page_Load I have this code:

string strConnection;
strConnection = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["ConnectionString"];

SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(strConnection);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT TOP 15 * FROM LBS_Device", conn);


myDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection) ;

when I try to build this, I get an error on this line:
myDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection) ;

If I understand correctly the datagrid is not declared correct?
It needs a directive so it can use .DataSource property?
I've tried adding before Page_Load this:
protected System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl myDataGrid;

but while this indeed adds some properties to the grid, the DataSource is not there.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much for your time,

Ok, it may see stupid,
but after a last test it worked!

I have added this line just before page_load:
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid myDataGrid;

shouldn't this line be filled automatically by visual studio?
