hello, I have a datagrid that I need to be able to update directly from the datagrid. I have done this before and it worked fine. I am trying to do it again and it's doing some very strange things! First of all the "_EditCommand" only works if the edit/update/cancel column is set for linkbutton (I want PushButton). next problem, I try to get the value of the entered value using txtFaxed = e.Item.Cells(1).Controls(0). however, this returns the value from the database, not the entered text. I have done this before and had no troubles, I had it set up for pushbuttons and it got the typed value. I can't see any differences in the code or the html. the only difference is that the first time I used an arraylist to bind to, and the new one is bound to a dataset table. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
