Have a datagrid.  In Javascript I read through the datagrid using a datatable called 'mytable'.
The datagrid has both template and bound columns.  I can read the template column values OK but having trouble reading the text value of the bound columns.  Here is a snippet from the
script that reads the value of the template columns:

      for( x = 1; x < mytable.rows.length; x++ )
            {
                  y=x+1;
                  ctlCBVal=document.getElementById("dgPOItems__ctl"+y+"_ReceiveProduct").checked;
                  ctlRecvQtyVal=document.getElementById("dgPOItems__ctl"+y+"_QtyReceived").value;
                  ctlRefQty=document.getElementById("dgPOItems__ctl"+y+"_QtyRefused").value;
                  ctlPaidPrice=document.getElementById("dgPOItems__ctl"+y+"_PaidPrice").value;


     The bound column is named "QtyOrd" and I'm not exactly sure how to use mytable to extract the value from its cell.

you could generate an unique ID tag for each TD of your table, and use it to retrieve your value

document.getElementById('TheIdMayBeForgedByappendingXandYPositions').firstChild.value

or, if you want to reduce the size of the generated HTML (that is, if you dont want to add an ID tag to each TD,
you could jump from cell to cell using nextSibling...
but that is error prone and less robust.
