Okay, hopefully someone can help, because I am out of ideas and will be out of time relatively soon...

I'm building a web app using asp.net 2.0. I am trying to pull information from a datagrid to populate different dropdown lists and text fields on the page. I looked at some of the other discussions, and nothing worked. I tried to do datagrid.items(1,2), but didn't have the option to do a .items immediately afer my datagrid. I tried datagrid.columns(2), datagrid.columns.item(2) and on and on and on, but nothing worked right. The only value it was pulling was the column header, not the actual value. Every time I tried to do something with a row, it would say the index was out of range. I also tried the .extractvaluesfromcell, but that just confused me even more. Please help!

Here is my code using to get row values from a datagrid:

        // Iterate through all rows within shopping cart list
        for (int i=0; i < MyList.Items.Count; i++) {
   
            // Obtain references to rows controls
            TextBox quantityTxt = (TextBox) MyList.Items[i].FindControl("Quantity");
            CheckBox remove = (CheckBox) MyList.Items[i].FindControl("Remove");
   
            // Wrap in try/catch block to catch errors in the event that someone types in
            // an invalid value for quantity
            int quantity;
            try {
                quantity = Int32.Parse(quantityTxt.Text);
   
                // If the quantity field is changed or delete is checked
                if (quantity != (int)MyList.DataKeys[i] || remove.Checked == true) {
   
                    Label lblProductID = (Label) MyList.Items[i].FindControl("ProductID");
   
                    if (quantity == 0 || remove.Checked == true) {
                        cart.RemoveItem(cartId, Int32.Parse(lblProductID.Text));
                    }
                    else {
                        cart.UpdateItem(cartId, Int32.Parse(lblProductID.Text),quantity);
                    }
                }
            }
            catch {
                MyError.Text = "There has been a problem with one or more of your inputs.";
            }
        }
