Gridview, TemplateField Programmaticall y.

I want to programmaticall y add a dropdown to each row in a certain
column returned to the gridview by my query. I want to do this
entirely in behind-code. My gridview tag in the page will have the
following code and no more.

<asp:GridView ID="gv" runat="server"
AutoGenerateCol umns="false">
</asp:GridView>

Now, I have generated boundfields to add regular data without a
control to the gridview.
Example:

foreach (DataColumn col in tempTable.Colum ns)
{
BoundField bField = new BoundField();
bField.HtmlEnco de = false;
bField.DataFiel d = col.ColumnName. ToString();
bField.HeaderTe xt = col.ColumnName. ToString();
gv.Columns.Add( bField);
}

That's fine, but in one of these columns that comes back, I want it to
contain a dropdownlist that could be filled from a separate sql query
and also have this column be editable.

I've referenced http://www.dotnet247.com/247referenc.../13/65435.aspx
and doing such with a dropdownlist, instead of a button doesn't kill
off my page, but it also does not load my dropdownlist.

Any ideas?

-Jonathan

Hi, I am creating a Composite Control within which I have a GridView. In this GridView, I have three TemplateFields, the last one being a template with a LinkButton which is meant to be clicked so I can capture this event to do something about it. The problem is that in the CreateChildControls method, I initialize the GridView and link its RowCommand event to a method (so I can capture the LinkButton Click) but it doesn't work... I put...

When you use a SqlDataSource to hook up data to a GridView it seems to be to be very inflexible. For example, I want to create my own Delete button with my own code and I also want to create a popup warning for the user before delete takes place. Whenever I do this with a SqlDataSource, I get the error 'Deleting is not supported by data source 'SqlDataSource1' unless DeleteCommand is specified.' Which means I have to specify a sproc or...

I can use a GridView and ObjectDataSource to bind my data using "Eval" expressions ... provided the GridView and related Column TemplateFields are defined as inline HTML. I prefer to programmatically create the GridView Column/ TemplateField definitions at runtime.... because I do not know the number of applicable columns until runtime. The addition of the GridView Column/ TemplateFields work fine, however the "Eval" expressions do not...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
