Because we are not using the Grid View’s built-in data model and are binding dynamically, the Grid View will not switch into and out of Edit Mode automatically.

Now you can ask questions directly to me on my new site ASPForums.
Basically, I was trying to convert an existing data-display-only Grid View (ie, no special functions) into one where I can update a field, namely the inventory for displayed products. New Edit Index 'set to selected row Bind Grid View() ' your own subroutine that you use to bind your datagrid End Sub Protected Sub Grid View1_Row Canceling Edit(By Val sender As System.
After working with Data Grids so efficiently, I was scared that Grid Views were going to be a million times more complex.
You can see the C# code below will give the row number whatever you are editing by New Edit Index property.
So Grid View will put the appropriate row into the Edit Mode by assigning row number to its Edit Index property. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed.
Edit Index = -1 'set to no selection Bind Grid View() End Sub One issue I ran into while attempting to figure this all out was if I didn’t rebind my Grid View at the end of each event, I was required to click twice to get it to select the correct row, and if I clicked around, it would always be a row behind. This blog is for nothing else than to try and help me help you and help you help me and us help everyone else try to fix anything and everything we can’t figure out with this language.
Hope this saves someone a full day of research (and possibly some hair)!
In the template field I will Place a label or some controls, So that it’s very easy to access those controls in the code behind by using Find Control method. Item Template is the content to display for the items in the Template Field.
Suppose if we are trying to hide primary key of our table, there is actually no need to hide. In the above Snippet you are seeing a label in Item Template that means whenever we are showing Grid View to the user Label will be visible to the user.
Finally, to pull your hidden value that you’ve dubbed a Data Key in the Grid View’s subroutine.
