Net gridview rowupdating event
It'd be great if you could provide some sample code here. I am using the Row Updating event to programmatically update my database, but the new values are already gone by the time the Row Updating event is fired. I have found several forum postings detailing this but no one has posted their solution. Another way to get values out of the gridview is to put the interesting fields in Data Key Names, which can be a very ugly solution because the viewstate grows as a result of this.
If so, how do you know the control id if it's dynamically created? I am having the same problem, and it's not a boundfield or template field problem either as I am using both. This magical function extracts values from the datacontrol fields and puts them in an IOrdered Dictionay.
The reason is we don't fill the values unless your are bound to a datasource control.
Data Bind() End Sub Its not your fault that the new values are empty.
Now, when an user edit a row then click update, I'm having problem getting the new values in gridview's rowupdating event, it always returns the old values. With that being said you could go directly after the form post data perhaps, i usually find it's easiest to debug then search through and find your key value pair. I'll take a closer look at your posts maybe tomorrow, and definitely Monday, but I'm just a hack, and I so close to dumping this whole thing and lettting someone else do it...whooops there isn't anyone else... The new values are not being retrieved, just the old values. Excuse my crude Msg Box methos; it only goes to prove what a hack I am. Controls Dim dcfc Cell As Data Control Field Cell = o Ctl If dcfc Cell Is DBNull. Controls Dim cell As Data Control Field Cell = Try Cast(control, Data Control Field Cell) If cell Is Not Nothing And Also cell. By the way, when I attempted to cut and paste your code, the compiler would not accept the arguments (String, Object) at the end of IDictionary, saying that IDictionary has no parameters, and also in the return values portion below it complains that Dictionary is not a type. Dictionary is a generic type and you have to include System. I'm not sure whats going on in your case Yes I am getting the exact data that's in the edit row. It's a record that looks similar to the other data in the database, but it is defintiely different values so I am confident that I am looking at the edit row.
I believe that databinding on every postback is the cause but that's not something that I can change right now, same goes with the autogeneratedcolumns setting. I'm not sure if I know what you mean about 2 way binding. If you meanam I using Bind instead of Eval in my HTML, then yes. And the result of your code is no different than my version or what I was doing before, which was just using the findcontrol method, and that just returns what was in the grid when it was first binded to the database on page load. Yes ok i think i know what you are probably doing wrong.
If you are using command buttons, then do not use Auto Generate Edit Button.
I have a dynamically created gridview, it's autogeneratedcolumns is set to True, and it databinds on every postback. If i move the databind to load (which fires before the Row Updating) it ceases to work correctly, and the newvalues are null. Dim o Conn as new Sql Connection("") Dim o Cmd as new Sql Command("Update Sp", o Conn) o Cmd. Guys maybe it's just Friday evening and I've already had 1 Guinness to ease the tension, but you two just flew about 30,000 feet over my head. Crack open reflector and look at the Grid View's source code. The event arguments will ALWAYS be empty unless you are bound to a datasource control. created the following code in VB, and though it runs without error, it's not doing anything for me. This is such a monumental show stopper after all the work I have put into this web site, I can't believe there isn't a straight forward method of retrieving the new values. Edit Index) Dim dict Values As New Ordered Dictionary Dim o Ctl As Control For Each o Ctl In gv Row. Row State, False) End If Next Dim dict Entry As Dictionary Entry For Each dict Entry In dict Values Try Msg Box(dict Entry. To String) Catch ex As Exception End Try Next Public Shared Function Get Values(row As Grid View Row) As IDictionary (Of String, Object ) Dim values = New Ordered Dictionary() For Each control As Control In row. Unfortunately I am getting identical results...same I have always been getting which is just the old values. Try to write a small sample with one column and that one event and see if it works.
When I hit Update, the changes are not saved, and there is no error message. When I hit Update, the changes are not saved, and there is no error message. Then the page posts back, the text boxes go back to being labels and the new values are lost, and the Row Updating code never fires. Yes, I did put the breakpoint at the Row Updating line (and not in the function).Do you have some sort of Java Script functionality that may be stopping it? A common problem people have with Grid Views is understanding when to data bind the data source to the Grid View.-Frinny Hi all, I seem to be having the same issue but I don't quite follow the trouble with the above post. Can you explain the T/S a little more or maybe point me to another post that may have already covered it? Hi all, I seem to be having the same issue but I don't quite follow the trouble with the above post. Can you explain the T/S a little more or maybe point me to another post that may have already covered it? It's quite common that people create the data source and bind this source to the Grid View in their Page_Load() method.NET Forum so that other people can learn from the experience too. -Frinny You may need to turn off validation even if you are not validating anything.It seems like the Java Script can get mangled otherwise.
Is there a flag I can turn on or off when I am doing row updating so that I can detect and not rebind?
