DataGrid: Bound Column vs Template Column

I have a datagrid with a bound column and a template column as given below.

When I scan through the grid, I get the value of the first column (bound column). However, I cannot get the value of the second column (Template Column). I can see the data in both columns though.

<AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="#e0e0e0"></AlternatingItemStyle>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="Facility" HeaderText="Facility"> </asp:BoundColumn>
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Facility2">
<ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Left"></ItemStyle>

foreach (System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItem GridRow in Grid.Items)
string str_first_column_value = GridRow.Cells[0].Text ///returns good value
string str_second_column_value = GridRow.Cells[1].Text //returns no value

Is there any other syntax to retrieve the TemplateColumn value?

since it's an itemtemplate accessing is a lil different---you could do something like this

variable = CType (dgManagerView.Items(x).Cells(9).Controls(1), Label).Text

Not sure on the sequence for C# but it should be somewhat similar

Try this. 


<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Description" SortExpression="Description">
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text="Test" />
foreach (System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItem GridRow in Grid.Items)
    TextBox tb = (TextBox)GridRow.FindControl("TextBox1");
    string str_first_column_value = GridRow.Cells[0].Text; 
    string str_second_column_value = tb.Text;

Dynamic change the 'Read Only' in datagrid(template column/Bound column)
I create few template column and bound column in datagrid. One of the template column contain the StudentMark. I want to know how to change that column to (Read only) or "Not" (Read only) when click the edit button. It is based on a dropdownlist to determine to read only or not.

Bound columns and template columns in Gridview
Hello Everyone, In my gridview, I changed some of the bound columns to template columns, I noticed that the template column is not recognized inside the RowDataBound event method. The reason I changed the bound columns to template columns so that I can add the total column in the footer. I guess I cannot do that with bound columns. If I do e.Row.Cells[5].Text then  5th column is not recognixed inside the Rowdatabound event, but If i do e.Row.Cells[4].Text then  it is recognized. Please let me know what am I doing wrong. <asp:GridView ID="dgAgentActivity" runat="server" AutoGen...

datagrid columns bound to columns from different tables
Hi, I have a dataset with multiple tables. Is there a way to bind each of the datagrid's columns to a column from a different tables? Thanks in advance! BR The bottom line, yes you can, but it would take some custom methods getting called from a template column and some other fancy tricks. But, the datagrid is designed and works best when it's given it's one datasource. If you need data from different columns in different tables, I would make a custom datatable that reflects the columns you need and use that custom datatable has the datagrid's datasource. Don't think of t...
