DetailsView control and checkboxlist inside a template

In VS2008, I have a DetailsView control with a checkboxlist control inside
its Edit template.
(1) I want the checkboxlist to be dynamic and display only as many
checkboxes as a user setting is configured. How?
(2) Also the column that should depict the checkboxlist selections, is a
simple character column in SSE2005, in the form of a comma-delimited string
(e.g. 1,5,7,12,23). When the DetailsView is loaded, I want each of the
corresponding checkboxes in the checkboxlist to be checked, one for each
number in the comma-delimited string. And also when updating, I want to check
each checkbox in the list and reproduce a comma-delimited string to save it
in the database.

Which events inside the DetailsView should I use and how?

PS. I don't use ASP.NET's automatic features for updating for the
DetailsView. The control is always in Edit Mode, and I act based on custom
command button events inside the templates to do my job.

TIA

I am passing the whole object instead or parameters in my select and update methods. I can get the updated object if I set UpdateMethod, let ASP.NET autogenerate an update button, and then press update after making changes, but I don't want that update button. How can I get the updated object when the user presses one of my other action buttons?

I have a Datalist control on my page that I have binded to a table of available categories. In the Item Template I have a CheckboxList control bound to the products available in each Category. I need to pull out of the page which products the user has selected. I have bound the products to the CheckboxList control in the ItemDataBound event for the Datalist. How can I extract what checkboxes have been selected inside the Datalist?

Is there a way to increase the width of the text boxes for the DetailsView in edit or insert mode? When I put the control in either edit or insert mode, the text boxes to type the new text are always much smaller than the available space in the row.

I need to customize the DetailsView New record (insert) so that it gets the maximum value of ROWID and adds 1, places that value in the textbox and makes it read only. Also, I have a field called "DATEEVENT". I would like to place a calendar control there instead of the textbox that is shown.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
