Difference between rowediting and rowupdating in gridview
To cancel the update operation, set the collections, if necessary, before the values are passed to the data source.
A common way to use these collections is to HTML-encode the values supplied by the user before they are stored in the data source.
I would like a seperate button outside the gridview that the user can click to enable editing of the selected row. "Grid View1_Row Editing" is expecting a row index, so it can turn on "Edit Item Template" accordingly, correct?
But If you want to click on button outside of Gridview and make entire Gridview editable, you shouldn't trigger Grid View1_Row Editing, since you don't know what editindex to pass.
event is raised when a row's Update button is clicked, but before the Grid View control updates the row.
The code looks like this: protected void Comments Grid View_Row Deleting(object sender, Grid View Delete Event Args e) protected void Comments Grid View_Row Editing(object sender, Grid View Edit Event Args e) protected void Comments Grid View_Row Canceling Edit(object sender, Grid View Cancel Edit Event Args e) It turns out that you can either set the buttons firing the event to Causes Validation="false" or you can register the script as something that provides a value that cannot be determined until runtime.
I didn't realize the intent behind Event Validation until this problem came up, but the .
The Repeater and Grid View controls are used differently.
A Grid View control is used when you want to display a set of data in a table format.I don't mind if this involves the row being placed at the top of the grid while in edit mode if that is required.
