Default Trying to find control on content page

Hello. I am trying to access a hidden field that is on a content page, from my custom class being called from my objectdatasource.

Lets see if I can make this more clear:

I have a class named ItemsDAL that has a method called GetRecords.

I have a master/content page that has an ObjectDataSource with Type=ItemsDAL and it's selectMethod=GetRecords.
Also on this master/content page is my GridView and a HiddenField with an ID=MyHiddenField

In the ItemsDAL.GetRecords I'd like to access the value in that hidden field.

I've made the class inherit system.web.ui.page and have tried every combination of Page.FindControl I can think of.

I'm thinking that instead of inheriting system.web.ui.page I need to inherit the page class itself...am I on the right track?

I've discovered that it's due to the fact that APP_CODE gets compiled into it's own assembly first...and thusly items in APP_CODE can be referenced by a page, but not vice versa. I've seen mention that one could build a base class that your pages/master pages derive from, and then you could do this....but I haven't seen an example I can follow yet lol.

Does anyone have a simple VB example of how to build an interface to a masterpage, in the manner I've described?
