i have a listbox in a grid and i'm trying to access the values populated in the listbox during the row updating event.  
 <asp:ListBox ID="InsuranceLB" runat="server" Width="225px" Height="75px" SelectionMode="Multiple" style="margin-top:2px;" autoscroll="true"  /><br />
     <ItemStyle VerticalAlign="Top" />

This is how i'm trying to get the values
   ListBox myListBox = (ListBox)GridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[14].FindControl("InsuranceLB");
An error isn't thrown but i don't get the listbox values either. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
