You can use the approach below for accessing the controls in the CommandItemTemplate and get their string representation:
source, GridCommandEventArgs e)
GridCommandItem cmdItem = (GridCommandItem)RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.CommandItem);
LinkButton linkBtn1 = (LinkButton)cmdItem.FindControl(
txt = linkBtn1.Text;
I hope this helps.
