ObjectDataSourc e UpdateMethod question

I have a FormView that shows details of a specific record on a table. The
SelecMethod returns a DataSet that includes all the fields from my Event
table and other read-only fields from linked tables. My FormView has
controls that are bound to the fiuelds on the dataset table. I am now
changing the FormView's Default Mode to Edit but I am having problems with
the related fields.

My ObjectDataSourc e is defined as:

<asp:ObjectData Source ID="ObjectDataS ourceEventDetai ls"
runat="server" OldValuesParame terFormatString ="original_{ 0}"
SelectMethod="S electEventDetai ls" TypeName="Event Data"
DataObjectTypeN ame="System.Dat a.DataSet" UpdateMethod="U pdateEventDetai ls">
<SelectParamete rs>
<asp:ControlPar ameter ControlID="Grid ViewEvents"
Name="eventID" PropertyName="S electedValue"
Type="Int64" />
</SelectParameter s>
</asp:ObjectDataS ource>
The EventData.Selec EventDetails performs a join with related tables and
returns a single table in a dataset with both the Event fields and the
related fields.

The EventData.Updat eEventDetails funcion takes as parameters the
original_EventI D and only the editable fields that belong to the Event

public void UpdateEventDeta ils(long original_EventI D, byte SendState,
string EntryNotes)
I added a button to save changes and when the button is pressed I called:
FormView1.Updat eItem(true);
When UpdateItem is called I receive the following exception:

Could not find a property named 'ImageIndex' on the type specified by the
DataObjectTypeN ame property in ObjectDataSourc e
'ObjectDataSour ceEventDetails' .

ImageIndex is a field found on a related table which is not updated by
UpdateEventDeta ils.

I am not sure if I should limit the SelectMethod to return the table and
do the databinding for the read only fields a different way.

Hi Jeronimo,

Thank you for your post!

ObjectDataSourc e.DataObjectTyp eName is used to get or set the name of a
class that the ObjectDataSourc e control uses for a parameter in an update,
insert, or delete data operation, instead of passing individual values from
the data-bound control.

Since your UpdateMethod of ObjectDataSourc e is passing individual values,
you should remove 'DataObjectType Name="System.Da ta.DataSet"' part from your
ObjectDataSourc e declaration.

For more information, see MSDN documentation on this property:
asource.dataobj ecttypename(d=i de).aspx

Hope this helps. If anything is unclear, please feel free to post here.

I'm having some trouble using the ObjectDataSource in ASP.NET 2.0. I have a wrapper that contains the static methods for Select and Update. The Update-method takes the business object as parameter. When the Update-method is invoked by the ObjectDataSource, the object referenced is not the same object returned by the Select-method, but a new object with only the values from the Edit-template. So basically I get a reference to a useless...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
