If so, how do you know the control id if it's dynamically created? I am having the same problem, and it's not a boundfield or template field problem either as I am using both. This magical function extracts values from the datacontrol fields and puts them in an IOrdered Dictionay. Grid View has a method that is unfortunately protected called Extract Row Values. I believe that databinding on every postback is the cause but that's not something that I can change right now, same goes with the autogeneratedcolumns setting. I'm not sure if I know what you mean about 2 way binding. If you meanam I using Bind instead of Eval in my HTML, then yes. And the result of your code is no different than my version or what I was doing before, which was just using the findcontrol method, and that just returns what was in the grid when it was first binded to the database on page load. Yes ok i think i know what you are probably doing wrong. I'd like to know if there are any other ways to retrieve the new values? I have been using the web site successfully for just over a year, and I am presently using a Select button in the row to launch a detailsview, and I edit the database that way. Net a year and a half ago, and VB programmer forever before that, but I feel pretty confident in this large and powerful website I have created, but the users don't like the details view have expressed a desire to edit on the fly in the gridview. My user base has a hold of management's ear, and my management wants to dump ASP. This could be the straw that broke the camel's back - a person's job hangs in the balance - MINE!! If you are databinding in page_load then you need to only do it if(!

Did I mention I am getting bored of grids, data and databases and am going to spend the holiday break convincing myself I can learn to be a game programmer... (i.e., employee ID: you can convert an emp ID field in your gridview to a templatefield then delete the label in the edit Item Template then insert a dropdownlist then bind the dropdownlist to a datasource that binds you're to your employee table in your database. Am I being clear, or am I being presumtuous in my undertsnading of the use of datasources? *I believe your asking us if you're precluded from binding a dropdownlist (for example) to a datasource from within a templatefield in your gridview, and if thats what your asking... And all I'm saying is that you YES can use another datasource.
