Updating text boxes

I am working on a web-based ticket application.  I have a view where a user can see help tickets he or she created.  They can click on the ticket, and a new page loads with the text of the ticket so that they can edit the information.  I have an update button that executes an update SQL statement to update the ticket information.  The update query works just fine.  The query takes an input parameter '@Description'.  This parameter is bound to the text box, 'txtDescription.text'.  However, when the update button is selected, and the parameters are being set, the 'txtDescription.text' value is set to the old value, not the actual values that are in the text box.  Does that make sense??? How do I fix it!?  Thanks.

I think what would have been happening is that the text you are assigning to the TextBox when it loads for the first time would be again set to the text box even after the user modifies it and says Update.

Check your Page_Load code, how have you set the text box text for the first time ?
use IsPostBack

If Not IsPostBack Then
   TextBox1.Text="First Time Page is Shown" 'i.e the code to set textxbox value for firts time should be within this IF block
End if

Use the AcceptChanges() Method of the DataSet /Adapter
(the changes will be reflected)

Arif- you're right, I had the text boxes populating during Page_Load.  Thanks for the help!
