DataGrid, DataSet, GetChanges question

In winforms, I can bind a datagrid to a dataset. When the user wants to
submit changes, it's easy to see what has changed with the DataSet
"GetChanges " method.

In ASP.Net, I can create the dataset, bind it to the grid, then send to
the user. But upon postback, I have no way of knowing which items
changed on the datagrid. Do I really have to roll my own code for this
or is it possible to use the GetChanges method on the dataset after
all? Thanks --Marty

Hi Marty,

Due to client-server mode, a web application can't tightly
bind a datagrid with its underlying data source. Hence
once postback, you need to get data from datagrid itself,
e.g. datagrid.Items[rowIndex].Cells[colIndex].Text. There
is no way to use GetChanges on it's underlying dataset.

I am writing a DataBase Client/Server pair of applications in C#. The client registers a query, the server populates a dataset and its contents sent via XML to be displayed in the client DataGrid. This works fine. When the data is modified in the client DataGrid, the DataGrid.GetChanges call populates the change dataset which is transferred back to the server and the DataAdapter is Updated. This is where I am having a couple of problems:...

I have a DataGrid web control which I've dynamically populated with template columns to be used for bulk-editting. Generally, all of the columns are textbox and/or dropdownlist child controls.

However, when there is a large amount of DataGridItems (rows) the update processing can take a while. ...

Hi all, Would someone be able to tell me the most 'graceful' way of removing unwanted rows from a dataset based on a condition prior to update?

Then I create several rows with some default information, leaving one

I have a windows forms datagrid and I would like to be able to recognize when changes have been made in order to perform the update. I tried the following, which works well, but only if the user changes rows at some point. If they enter the grid, change a cell, and then click close it does not see the change. The same holds true if they enter the grid, change a cell, arrow right or left to a different cell and change that value. If...
