Default User control accessing problem

Hi, I have a grid (which has textboxes in the item template) that has been converted as a user control and this is placed in another page.

At page load I am able to bind the values to the textboxes in the user control. However if i modify the contents of the textboxes and when i try to read the contents of the textbox I am getting the initial value itself and not the altered value.

Can anyone suggest how to get the altered values.

Thanks in advance

If you are populating the data in the page load and do not place it in an (!IsPostBack), there is a chance that you are overwriting the value. E.g.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
     //Placing it here will only set it on the first load of the page.
          txtBox.Text = "Initial";  //Will only populate on first page load.

     //Placing it here will always set it
     txtBox.Text = "Hello";   

protected void txtBox_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
     Response.Write("Textbox changed to " + txtBox.Text);

Hope this helps,
