Empty String when accessing DataGrid TextBox

P: n/a
I'm using VB.Net and trying to retrieve the data in the textboxcell of a datagrid after a successful display (used Databind).User can either display data or enter data in the textbox. I canalways get the textbox object using either the Controls orFindControl method but it's always returning an empty *.Textinstead of the value displayed on the screen. Below are snippetsof my code - anybody there who can help me PLEASE?


<edit mode turned on>

For i = 0 To mhRcptIndex - 1
srcLotNumber =Trim(UCase(CType(RcptLotInfoGrid.Items(i).Cells(1 ).Controls(1),TextBox).Text)) ==> empty string


srcLotNumber =Trim(UCase(CType(RcptLotInfoGrid.Items(i).Cells(1 ).FindControl("txtInvLotNumber"), TextBox).Text)) ==> empty string


<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="LOT NUMBER">
<asp:TextBox id="lblInvLotNumber" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "InvLotNumber") %>'>
<asp:TextBox id="txtInvLotNumber" runat="server"CssClass="Input" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"InvLotNumber") %>'>
