Editable Datagrid C# Windows Application Help

I want to build a windows application that has a datagrid filled with
data. When a person modifies information on a single cell, it updates
the database without the user having to click on a save button.

Any ideas on how I can accomplish this?

Hi Sean,

You could handle the appropriate changed event of the data source. In the
2.0 framework you could use a BindingSource component to wrap your data
source and handle the CurrentItemChan ged event:

"BindingSource. CurrentItemChan ged Event"

If you're binding directly to a DataTable or DataSet you can handle the
RowChanged event on the DataTable to which the grid is bound:

"DataTable.RowC hanged Event"

If you're binding to a custom object or binding list you can implement your
own property changed event (although you can still use a BindingSource in
the 2.0 framework)

(Note: If you're using the 2.0 framework use the DataGridView control
instead of DataGrid, which is included in the VS 2005 Toolbox instead of
DataGrid anyway)

I recommend that you don't do this for a single cell, however. Instead,
think about updating the database after the current row loses focus and has
been validated. Also, the entire process is much easier using a
DataGridView. Simply handle the RowValidated event and perform the database
update there:

"DataGridView.R owValidated Event"

You can tell whether a row has changes after it loses focus easily if you're
using a DataSet by checking the DataRow.RowStat e property for any value
other than
DataRowState.Un changed and DataRowState.De tached.

"DataRow.RowSta te Property"

Hi, Could you help me to understand how datagrid works. I'm trying to make a datagrid editable. Now most of the tutorials I read says that i should turn the Enable ViewState off. Why is that? If i turn this off then i need to support building the datagrid because the datagrid is not persistant. Right?

I have a webform with a two-column datagrid based on an Arraylist. The Arraylist draws the data for the two columns from two different tables in an SQL database.

I actually need only the first column to be editable but any ideas on getting the whole row editable would help at first. Apologies for the amount of...

Hi- I've been struggling with this problem and none of the fixes posted seem to help out at all. Yet, it seems like such a simple problem... I have a DataGrid, and load it up with data on page load. In my EditCommand event handler I set the editItemindex. All good. Except, the user needs to click twice to get the DataGrid to become editable. It's obvious to me (perhaps worngly) that ASP.NET is storing the data

I'm sure it can be done, I haven't been able to find the right article yet. I want to be able to filter the records that the datagrid displays, but still have an editable datagrid. That is, I only want records from the table where "State= 'CA'" are to be displayed, but where the user can still edit/add/delete records. The only examples I have found utilizes DataViews, which apparently are not editable. Can someone point me to the...
