GridView & FormView

[Config: ASP.NET v2 on WinXP w/ IIS & Visual Studio .NET 2005]

I would like to build my data pages such that the top of the page
contains a GridView showing the data with 'Enable Select = true'.

Below that I would like to have a FormView, that by default is in
'Insert' mode for creating a new record.

If the user 'selects' a record in the GridView above, I would like to
set the FormView to 'Edit' mode with the 'selected' record data loaded
in it for editing. I would use the built-in editing features of the
GridView, but the page has fixed width margins that make this almost
impossible.

The problem I am having is that during the post-back, the FormView
always gets reset to 'Insert' mode, no matter what I try.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Kyle,

I'm not sure what you have tried so far but I am doing the exact same
thing. In the "SelectedIndexC hanged" event of your gridview use the
following:

YourFormView.Ch angeMode(FormVi ewMode.Edit)

The cancel button in your formview will make it go back to insert
automatically.

If you are using sorting on your gridview, I advise the following in
the gridview's "Sorted" event also:

GridView.Select edIndex = -1
YourFormView.Ch angeMode(FormVi ewMode.Insert)

...because the sort may leave the same physical row selected but the
sort will mean a different record will be in it. (This is what is
happening in my gridview bound to a custom sort anyway)

What's the best way to return to GridView after editing a detail record in a FormView so the GridView shows the page with the edited record on it? I'm using GridView with standard ObjectDataSource, no custom paging. Thanks for any tips on this.

In a GridView, take for example a delete button. When I click the delete button in my GridView the GridView row is deleted and the GridView rebinds and refreshes the records to show accurately. Problem: I have a GridView that has a select. This select gives a FormView control the data to open. I set the GridView visible to false. I have only my FormView open. This FormView is used to edit, have other DetailsViews that open etc.

Hi All, I have a GridView inside the EditItemTemplate of a FormView. Both FormView and GridView are data bound using an ObjectDataSource. When the FormView's ObjectDataSource object has a SelectParameters with a SessionParameter in the parameters collection and the object stored in the Session is a reference type, the DataGrid fails to enter Line Editing mode. Is this a bug? Is there a workaround for this problem?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...
