plz its very urgent,help mm

I think there is ambiguity of the type of textbox , u need to decide whether it is Windows textbox or web control text box
Try this

Dim age1 As Integer = CType(e.Item.FindControl("Age"), Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox).text

Or

Dim age1 As Integer = CType(e.Item.FindControl("Age"), Windows.Forms.TextBox).text

i hope this will help u

sir,thank for ur response
i did changes as u said-but still now also its giving error as::
