I am updating a gridview using c# code. I am trying to capture the new values from the gridveiw after I click edit... therefore I have been using the following code.

    protected void edit_record_updating(object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
        update_class update_records_method = new update_class();
        update_records_method.Record_ID = ((TextBox)user_records.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[2].Controls[0]).Text.ToString();
        update_records_method.Logon_Name = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();
        update_records_method.Record_Class = ((TextBox)user_records.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[4].Controls[0]).Text.ToString();  
        update_records_method.Record_Name = ((TextBox)user_records.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[6].Controls[0]).Text.ToString();

The problem is that not text seems to be  being picked up when I entre it into the text boxes

Make sure your textboxes have IDs assigned and try to use this:
update_records_method.Record_ID = ((TextBox)user_records.Rows[e.RowIndex].FindControl("IdTextBox")).Text;

How do I create ID's for the textboxes used in the Gridview...They seem to be created dynamicly.

Sorry for delay.

I thought you were using TemplateFields.

In this case your code is correct. The problem is elsewhere. I'd suspect that you bind old data to grid before Updating event takes place. A common error is data is bound to grid in Page_Load event ALWAYS but should be bound only on initial page load.

If you would give more code it might be helpful.

if (!this.IsPostBack)
  ... // bind grid here

thanks for the help all sorted now. The code which I used was

update_records_method.Record_ID = ((TextBox)user_records.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[2].Controls[0]).Text.ToString();
