I am trying to obtain Text from GridView Text Box in edit mode from RowUpdating event. I tried to use a posted solution:

CType(e.Row.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(2).Controls(0), TextBox).Text

I get the following error...
Error      3      'Row' is not a member of 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdateEventArgs'.

The example posted used "ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdateEventArgs" and somehow resolved this.... I am using .NET 2.0

Also, I am doing this from a constructed data set and not directly to a database!

Thanks!

Can you try this:

Ctype(yourGridName.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(2).Controls(0), TextBox).Text

I tried the suggested line which resulted in a cast exception. I changed TextBox to Label and retrieved the original value. Not sure where to go from here since the TextBox is in the display.

You may have to play around with the indexes of the cells and controls to get a handle to the textbox.  Usually the Gridviw puts a label, a text, and another label in each cell.

Why don't you try using the FindControl() method and see if your textbox is there:

TextBox tb = CType(yourGridName.Rows(e.RowIndex).FindControl("<id_of_your_textBox>"), TextBox)

if(tb != null)
{
    //Textbox is found.
    //Do processing stuff here.
}
