Default Form View Controls Unaccessable

I have seen many posts, but never found a solution. My basic problem is accessing the controls inside the formview. As I understand, you can only access currentMode's controls. So lets say I want to access edit mode's control and I am in readonly mode, so what I am doing is during mode-changed event, i am trying to access a control in edit mode. But irony is, although it detects the mode has been changed to edit, but it still has readonly mode's editmode's controls in memory, instead of edit mode;s, which become available after page is rendered. So they are only available during page unload event (not even at prerender), when it becomes useless to access and modify control property, because it has already been rendered.

So does anybody know the solution to the problem?

Following is a function in which I am trying to access a couple of controls and I am calling it during mode-changed event:

 Protected Sub addValueAttributeToPasswordTextBoxes()

        Dim cntrl1 As Control
        If fvContactDetail.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Edit Then
            For Each cntrl1 In fvContactDetail.Row.Controls
                Dim SSN As TextBox = CType(cntrl1.FindControl("SSN"), TextBox)
                Dim SSN_PWD As TextBox = CType(cntrl1.FindControl("SSN_PWD"), TextBox)
                Dim SSN_Confirm_PWD As TextBox = CType(cntrl1.FindControl("SSN_Confirm_PWD"), TextBox)
                If Not (SSN Is Nothing Or SSN_PWD Is Nothing Or SSN_Confirm_PWD Is Nothing) Then

                    Dim SSN_PWD_Value As String = SSN_PWD.Attributes.Item("Value")
                    Dim SSN_PWD_Confirm_Value As String = SSN_Confirm_PWD.Attributes.Item("Value")

                    If SSN_PWD_Value Is Nothing Then
                        SSN_PWD.Attributes.Add("Value", SSN.Text)
                        SSN_PWD.Attributes.Item("Value") = SSN.Text
                    End If
                    If SSN_PWD_Confirm_Value Is Nothing Then
                        SSN_Confirm_PWD.Attributes.Add("Value", SSN.Text)
                        SSN_Confirm_PWD.Attributes.Item("Value") = SSN.Text
                    End If

                    SSN = Nothing
                    SSN_PWD = Nothing

                End If
        End If
    End Sub

Correction to the sentence:

"but it still has readonly mode's controls in memory"
