Solution 1

Add ItemCommand Event on your datalist as given below.

<asp:datalist id="DataList1" runat="server" onitemcommand="DataList1_ItemCommand" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
                <asp:textbox id="txtcomment" runat="server" text=""></asp:textbox>

Then on item command event, you can get text of your textbox easily.

protected void DataList1_ItemCommand(object source, DataListCommandEventArgs e)
    if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        TextBox txtComments = (TextBox)e.Item.FindControl("txtcomment");
        string Comments = txtComments.Text; // here you can get text from your textbox
