Problem with textbox in template column and databind
I am having a problem with the datagrid and a template column that is
giving me fits.

In the HTML, I have the grid defined at design time as just having one
template column that contains a text box named txtQty.

At runtime, I add the bound fields. (I'm doing this at runtime
because there will be a situation where I will have different bound
fields, but I've left that out to simplify the code for this message).

The behavior I would like to have is that the user fills in a quantity
in the text boxes. When cmdAdd is clicked, I want to iterate through
each txtQty, and perform a database insert for each one that has a
numeric value greater than 0.

I am running into a problem where all bound columns disappear after
cmdAdd is clicked, unless I bind the grid again in the cmdAdd_click
sub (see comment in code sample). However, when I start doing the
databind in this sub, I lose the value of txtQty as soon as the grid
is bound. So, I have a situation where I can do another databind in
the cmdAdd_click sub and get all of my bound fields accessible and
lose my txtQty values, or not do a databind and lose the bound columns
but keep txtQty values.

Anyone have any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

dgCatalog.DataKeyField = "kid"

Dim datagridcol0 As New BoundColumn
datagridcol0.HeaderText = "ID"

' If the grid is bound at this point, all of the bound columns
' are accessible, but the text box txtQty is cleared.
' If the grid is NOT bound, bound columns are not available,
' the value of txtQty is accessible.


For Each dgItem In dgCatalog.Items

'Response.Write("0: " + dgItem.Cells(0).Text + "<BR>")
'Response.Write("1: " + dgItem.Cells(1).Text + "<BR>")
'Response.Write("2: " + dgItem.Cells(2).Text + "<BR>")
'Response.Write("3: " + dgItem.Cells(3).Text + "<BR>")
'Response.Write("4: " + dgItem.Cells(4).Text + "<BR>")

ctl = dgItem.FindControl("txtQty")

If Not ctl Is Nothing Then
textEdit = CType(ctl, TextBox)
End If

End Sub
