Retain user data in formview after update fails from business layer

When Updating using a FormView and ObjectDataSourc e, the formview
always does the data-binding of its controls and the field values in
the FormView are always overwritten by the results of the Update
method. This behavior is fine when update method succeeds.
But the problem is that when for some reason (e.g. a business rule
"start date can not be prior to 1/1/2006") business layer rejects
the data and Update method returns False (or throws an exception), then
even after the update function has failed, the formview re-binds itself
and all the data entered by user is replaced with data in database (as
it was before the edit).
The point is that user should be able to change the data, when it is
invalid and not forced to re-enter all information, including the
values that were correct but did not get saved to the database. In
this case, formview should be constructed from the viewstate so that
all user data is there and he gets another chance to correct and update
again.

Please suggest how do we address this issue?

I am developing a Windows Forms application in VB.NET that will use .NET remoting to access the data tier classes. A very simple way I have come up with is by creating typed (.xsd) datasets. For example dsParts.xsd and including that in the data tier. I then will create a class that looks like this Public Class CPart Inherits dsParts

I am looking for a good solution on how to implement data access in an application so that there is a clean separation between the data access layer, the business layer and the GUI layer. I am looking for a robust solution for a major application. Almost every developer seems to come up with a completely different solution. While many of them are not bad, I really want a very good one. My database is SQL Server 2000 and I am using Visual...

I'm relatively new to ASP.NET and ADO.NET, but I have a basic design question regarding the use of web services and APS.NET applications. Right now we have an application that uses web services to access the database layer. However, the code works in a pretty cumbersome and ungeneric way. Basically every query, update, and insert has its own function. So you see a lot of functions like webService.InsertCustomer(name, age, phone); or...

Hi all FIRST THE BORING BITS....... I normally use a Database layer, a Business layer and a GUI layer. The GUI uses an Object data source to bind to the Business layer which in turn binds to the database layer. Every thing is great. I can read data, change data in the grid, update the database, and when the GUI reloads, all the changes are all present and correct. i.e. the data seems to be persisted

I have a formview within a user control bound to an objectdatasource. When my formview is in edit mode and I press update I get an error saying that the form must be in edit mode to do an update. I am guessing on the postback the user control is setting the form back to ReadOnly. I got around this by triggering the update in the formview from a button using the updateitem method but changing the mode of the form to edit beforehand. This...

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,...
