C# getting values from a listbox inside a gridview

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

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.

Thanks i figured it out, the problem was that the listbox really was empty lol. I wasn't populating it again in the edit event. Thanks for the response, both ways (with or without the cell reference) works to get the items in the listbox from a grid.
