if all this is not working then use the most Cost consuming method:

1) create a datatable and add columns as in gridview
C#
DataTable dt = new DataTable();

C#
dt.Columns.Add("col1");.....

2) apply for loop on gridview rows and add repective datarow in datatable
C#
for(int i=0;i<gridview.rowc.count;i++)>
{
DataRow dr =dt.NewRow();
dr["col1"]= gridview.rows[i]["col1"].text;
dt.rows.add(dr);
}

i got it ......
DataTable dt = new DataTable();


    DataSourceSelectArguments args = new DataSourceSelectArguments();

    DataView dv = new DataView();
    dv = (DataView)SqlDataSource1.Select(args);

    dt = dv.ToTable();

BindingSource bs = (BindingSource )grid.DataSource;

DataTable dt = (DataTable ) bs.DataSource;

Sorry, BindingSource is only available on Windows Forms.

You can try:

C#
bool firstTime = true;
    System.Data.DataTable dt;
    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            if (this.firstTime)
            {
                System.Data.DataView dv =
                     (e.Row.DataItem as System.Data.DataRowView).DataView;
                this.dt = dv.ToTable();
                this.Label1.Text = dt.Rows.Count.ToString();
                this.firstTime = false;
            }
    }

namespace?
Why you are casting like that directly give sqldatasource1 to dt (here you need to convert datasource to datatable).
