    I am trying to get the value of a Radeditor field in a User Control when updating to store it in my database table

    In the update command of my grid I have tried using both of these commands


    Dim editedItem As GridEditableItem = TryCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)

    Dim MyUserControl As UserControl = CType(e.Item.FindControl(GridEditFormItem.EditFormUserControlID), UserControl)


    Dim editorcomment As RadEditor
    editorcomment = CType(MyUserControl.FindControl("Comment"), RadEditor)
    editorcomment = editedItem.FindControl("Comment")

    Neither of these commands brings back any data in editorcomment.Content

    Please can you give me some code which will retrieve the Content of the RadEditor field

    Further information

    I can get the value of other controls on the page. It is just the RadEditor that I am having problems with

    For example

    I can get the value of this drop down list

    assess_grade = CType(MyUserControl.FindControl("ddlassessgrade"), RadDropDownList).SelectedItem.Value

    Is there something extra I have to do for a RadEditor control
