Public Sub InstantiateIn(ByVal container As Control) Implements System.Web.UI.ITemplate.InstantiateIn
	Dim label1 As New Label
        	AddHandler label1.DataBinding, AddressOf Me.BindLabelColumn
        	container.Controls.Add(label1)
End Sub ’InstantiateIn

Public Sub BindLabelColumn(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        	Dim lbl As Label = CType(sender, Label)
        	Dim container As DataGridItem = CType(lbl.NamingContainer, DataGridItem)
        	Dim strVals As [String] = Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(CType(container, DataGridItem).DataItem, 'LastName')) + ', ' + Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(CType(container, DataGridItem).DataItem, 'FirstName'))
        	lbl.Text = strVals
End Sub ’BindLabelColumn

’Fill the Dataset
Dim objtc As New TemplateColumn
objtc.HeaderText = 'Full Name'

		label1.DataBinding += new EventHandler(this.BindLabelColumn);
		container.Controls.Add(label1);

	public void BindLabelColumn(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		Label lbl = (Label)sender;
		DataGridItem container = (DataGridItem)lbl.NamingContainer ;
