Default referencing controls in templates in form_view

I am having problems referencing controls and their properities the various templates in form_view. I need to set the visible property to false on a button in the item_template. I looked in the HELP section and there was a reference hyperlink called "Web Forms Control Identification" but the link is invalid. I have tried to do the following in the page_load subroutine.

dim var_deletebutton as new button
var_deletebutton = CType(me.formview1.findcontrol("bt_Delete"), button)
var_deletebutton.visible = false

I get this error when the program executes the second line of code:
"There is no source code available for the current location".

Can anyone help me?

What's the reasoning for the "New" in the declaration line?

You aren't creating a button, only referencing an existing one.... so there is no "New" to:

Dim var_deletebutton As button

I'm not 100% sure if that's related to your current problem, but it might be

Yes, please don't cross post. I just spent some time answering this in another forum. Posting in multiple forums doesn't make things easier to track.....
