Which means I won’t make my 70% code reduction Microsoft has always promised me.
Place Link Button Edit in Item Template and Link Button Update and Cancel in Edit Tamplate of Gridview's column. Fire Grid View's Row Editing event for Link Button Edit. Fire Grid View's Row Updating event for Link Button Update. Fire Grid View's Row Canceling Edit event for Link Button Cancel. Set Command Name propery of Link Buttons according to their respective event. Set Grid View's Data Key Names Property to record ID (ID=Primary/Unique key of student table) 7.
For example a Sql Data Source, which is automatically added to your Web Form if you drag-n-drop your way around Visual Studio 2005.
The problem is, I’d very much like to do so, if ASP. But I can’t set a Data Source property or anything on the Sql Data Source!!! I probably have to read the cells on the Grid View of the selected row, find the controls, get the values from those and insert those into my Data Set.
The code below shows me the values in the Drop Down List, but when I update it with the “edit” of the Grid View row, the value does not get saved.
All samples of course assume you’re doing everything in your page, but I have to do everything in my code-behind, because on forehand I don’t know what I’ll be binding to my Grid View.
Check out what I’m trying to do, maybe you can help?
When we edit a row in our Grid View and press the “Update” button, at some time it’s received in the Row Updating method.
First, I load up some data: After that, I’m doing some work to make my Grid View look beautifull, adding all columns by hand.But for this demo, I’ll show you the simple version, that also doesn’t work 🙂Let’s bind the data to our Grid View and have it autogenerate our columns, as well as an edit button.
