VB .NET: How to extract the value of a textbox in a GridView TemplateField?

2 New Member
Hi All,

I have a GridView and inside this GridView I only have one TemplateField. Inside this TemplateField, I have plenty of textboxes. Values of these textboxes are extracted from the database.

One of the textboxes is called txt_CarFeatures (this is the ID). Value of this textbox is extracted from the database, using Bind("CarFeatur es"). There is no problem populating the value into the textbox.

My problem is how to get the value from the textbox.
I am trying to get the value from this txt_CarFeatures textbox and use it for something else.
For example: after getting populated, txt_CarFeatures has "abcd123" in it. I am trying to get this "abcd123" and use it for something else.

I did some research and found some information about FindControl. But I have no idea how to use it and not sure whether this is the solution.

Please advise. Thanks.

Resolved. I used the following:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim test As TextBox test= CType(gridView_SearchResultDetails.Rows(0).Cells(0).FindControl("txt_Test1"), TextBox)
Hope this is useful for those who have similar issue.

Hi, here's my problem in short: Text boxes in gridview don't seem to hold their value if the column's .Visible property is changed back and forth. I've got a form with a gridview populated from a data view (which in turn is loaded from a manually setup DataTable for testing purposes). One of the columns in the grid is a checkbox that's tied to an event handler that'll change the .Visible property of a column with a text box. That text...
