I don't think these is documented by you can access the  
dgDataControlOfIndex or dgDataControlOfLine properties IF you are  
using a Data Grid form:

put the dgDataControlOfIndex[1] of group "DataGrid"

Notes: If you are not caching controls then returns empty if index or  
line has no control associated with it because it is offscreen.

For tables I see a ColumnControlOfIndex function in the source code.  
You can call it directly from any script nested within the Data Grid  

put ColumnControlOfIndex("column name", 3) into theControl

May return an empty value.
