I have a Grid (telerik rad grid) in my aspx page along with a text box which displays the total number of grid items. I want to be able to update the text in the textbox every time grid refreshes, but the textbox value retains old value even if i assign a new value to the textbox when grid refreshes.

The gridview needs a databind.  Here is an example.

Thank you for the reply. I might have confused you, the text box is not in the Grid. It is a regular
asp:textbox i added to the page outside the Grid. However i want it to display the count in the grid below it.

in the NeedDataSource event of the grid, you can get a count of your data that your bringing back each time and set your textbox.text value to the count of the data.

  protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.AllowPaging = false;
        Textbox1.Text = RadGrid11.MasterTableView.Items.Count.ToString();
       RadGrid1.MasterTableView.AllowPaging = true;
Textbox1.Text retains the old value.

I would try a recursive find


either that or loop through the radgrid like so:

  TextBox txtBox = (TextBox)item.FindControl("Textbox1");
  txtBox.Text = RadGrid11.MasterTableView.Items.Count.ToString();
