Accessing child controls inside of a GridView inside of a MultiView

I have a fileupload control which is in a itemtemplate field within the GridView:


<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="Trk_SqlDataSource">
                                    <asp:BoundField DataField="Title" HeaderText="Title" SortExpression="Title" />
                                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Upload Track">
                                            <asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload2" runat="server" />
                                            <asp:Button ID="Button4" runat="server" OnClick="Button4_Click" Text="Upload" />

All of this is inside of View2 of a Multiview on a single page.


I am trying to access the fileupload control when i click Button4 using this code:

protected void Button4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string myMusicDirectory = "../media";
        string audioFileName = string.Empty;

        if (((FileUpload)GridView1.FindControl("FileUpload2")).HasFile)
            audioFileName = ((FileUpload)GridView1.FindControl("FileUpload2")).FileName;
            int filesize = ((FileUpload)GridView1.FindControl("FileUpload2")).PostedFile.ContentLength;

            if (filesize > 0)
                string savedAudioFileName = myMusicDirectory + @"/" + Path.GetFileName(audioFileName);


and i keep getting the error of:

Error    156    Cannot convert type 'System.Web.UI.Control' to 'FileUpload'


I apologize if this has been discussed earlier I tried searching this site and countless others but I'm stumped here. So how do i go about accessing the child controls in the GridView which is inside of a View within a Multiview?


Thank you in advance.
