I've been asked to develop a system to record holiday requests.  I'm completely new to asp.net  so I'm finding it a bit of a struggle.  

At the moment I have a form with two dropdownlists and two text boxes and a button.  The users clicks fills in the form and presses the button and it runs a stored procedure to insert the details into my database.  

What I'm struggling to do or find much information is how to use the information from the controls on the form and populate gridview on the button click.  

Thanks in advance

What I think you're saying is:
1. You want to read the properties of the controls and write them to your database
2. Show an updated GridView

DropDownList value: dropdownlistname.SelectedItem.Value
TextBox value: textboxname.Text

Next if you want to update the GridView the lazy way, you can just rebind it like this:
dataSourceName = callYourSP()
gridViewName.DataSource = dataSourceName
gridViewName.DataBind()

If you have a small amount of records the lazy way is fine.
