Rowupdating code for gridview Chubby chaser chat

27 Apr

By default all the boundfields will be trasferred as Textboxes in Edit Mode.

May be you may think why am I using link buttons as we are provided with some command field buttons by Grid View.

Secondly if you want to include a custom field (some button or link) in the same column it’s not possible.

If we use proper command names for the buttons like “EDIT”, “DELETE”, “UPDATE”, “CANCEL” these will also trigger the appropriate Grid View Events.

Ok let’s move on to Code behind what we have to do when user clicks Edit, Delete, Update and Cancel When we click on Edit the On Row Editing event will be fired.

To avoid this we need to keep the property Read Only as false, Then in the edit mode nothing will happenes. The reason I use Template Field instead of Bound Field is that, it is very easy to grab those controls in the codebehind if we user labels or textboxes.

In case of the bound field’s we need to check what column it is and need to use index of that cloumn, which is little hard and even in future if we change the column order If you see the Last Template Field part in the above code, I am using the link buttons for edit, update, delete and cancel.
