dynamically creating a GridView with x rows based on database table column design

I need to take an existing GridView that connects to a database and gets
rows from a table and force it to show x rows in the insert mode. This is
what should happen:

1. There is a TextBox in the GridView header where I type the number of rows
I want to show in insert mode. Say I type 12.
2. When I click Add, the GridView changes to insert mode showing the 12 rows
ready to be filled in. I would use a custom template for insert mode.
3. In the footer of the GridView, There are 2 buttons, insert and cancel.
Pressing insert inserts the 12 rows into the database table and returns the
user to read only mode with the updated list. pressing cancel just returns
the user to read only mode.

Any recommendations on how to create a GridView like this? I would rather
use linq for the data access if possible.

I have a problem that I am desperate to understand. It involves dynamically adding controls to a Table control that is built as a result of performing a database query. I am not looking to avoid the problem by avoiding the table control or resorting to databound controls that better manage state for me. I hope to understand how to solve the problem by using the Table web control and sticking to the approach of building the table at run...

Hello, Does anyone have an idea on how I can filter the data in the gridview control that was returned by an sql query? I have a gridview that works fine when I populate it with data. Now I want to look at that data and filter it based on what is in it. I know that this could have been done with data sets and data views in asp.net 1.1 but how is this done now in asp.net 2.0?

Hi, How Do I create an instance of a derived class from an instance of a base class, essentially wrapping up an existing base class with some additional functionality. The reason I need this is because I am not always able to control/create all the different constructors the base class has. My problem can be described in code as follows ... /* This is the base class with a whole heap of constructors/functionality*/ public class Animal

Hi, I am designing a ASP.NET 2.0 front end for an activity based costing model and am interested in getting some general guidance on what design route to take. I can work out the specifics but need to make sure I am going down the right track. In particular I am unsure whether a gridview will do the job required. Quick intro of the activity based costing model: it splits costs first across activities then across products, e.g.:

I'm writing a data conversion application to support a system migration. The code is reading formatted text files and loading them into MS SQL 2005 database tables. I wanted to call the existing INSERT stored procedures in the database to perform the update, yet I don't want to hard-code all the parameter names. Below is a bit of code that reads the imported data from the 'Data' DataTable, and prepares to insert it into the database table...

I can think of a lot of reasons why this might need to be done but as far as I can tell it's not possible. I've been looking for a way to add HtmlTableRows to a table using a button click for a while and it seems it's not possible because the row that gets added with each click won't get recreated after a post back. After all the reading it seems that any dynamically created controls must be created in the Init event to be recreated after...

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,...
