Default Datagrid problem


Can anyone help, on my web page I have a datagrid, I have added

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Qty">
<asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server" Text="" Columns="4" MaxLength="3" width="40px">

to get an extra column, this works ok and you can enter in values

The code is

Private Sub MyList_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs ) Handles MyList.ItemCommand

 Dim l As TextBox
 Dim str As String

 l = CType(e.Item.FindControl("TextBox1"), TextBox)

 If Not (l Is Nothing) Then

   str = l.Text

 End If

End Sub

The FindControl works ok, but there is no text, the value of str, l.text are empty


? e.Item.FindControl("TextBox1").id

will give


which i assume means that it has found the right control


? e.Item.FindControl("TextBox1").Text


'Text' is not a member of 'Control'.

there are no other controls on the form other than the datagrid

why should Textbox1 have no text member

any help greatly appreciated
