    I am using this code to get the value of a textbox in my editform but it wont get the data after i change it

    newValues("Notes") = CType(e.Item.FindControl("textbox11"), TextBox).Text

    if i open the editform and the text in the textbox says "12345" and i change it to "54321" and press update it returns "12345" no matter what i change the text to it always just brings back the text from the database and not what i changed it to

    Hi Sean,

    I guess you are using a FormTemplate. If so you can give a try with the following approach to access the updated text. If this does not help consider sending your aspx and code behind.

     <EditFormSettings EditFormType="Template" > 
                          <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox> 
                          <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CommandName="Update" >Update</asp:LinkButton> 

            Protected Sub RadGrid1_UpdateCommand(ByVal source As ObjectByVal e As GridCommandEventArgs)  
                Dim edititem As GridEditFormItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditFormItem)  
                Dim txtbx As TextBox = DirectCast(edititem.FindControl("TextBox1"), TextBox)  
                Dim strtxt As String = txtbx.Text  
            End Sub

    This code did not work for me; my string kept reverting back to the original as well.  I never did find a solution, and Telerik kept feeding me the same solution, so I just wrote my own event handler.  So much for the $800 I spent.
