NET 2.0 most of the examples and tutorials deal with setting the Data Source ID, which buys you a lot of automation that you may not even appreciate unless you’ve done this the old fashioned way.
In this example, we’ll go through a fully featured Grid View with editing, deleting, selecting, sorting, and paging functionality that is manually bound and identify the limitations and some of the workarounds. Sql Data Source, Object Data Source, Linq Data Source, etc) specified in a Data Source ID, the Grid View can automate many functions because, through the data source control, the Grid View on its own can perform the following operations: When you manually bind data to a Grid View, the Grid View itself cannot perform these operations, so they must be implemented in your code.
First, I load up some data: After that, I’m doing some work to make my Grid View look beautifull, adding all columns by hand.
But for this demo, I’ll show you the simple version, that also doesn’t work 🙂Let’s bind the data to our Grid View and have it autogenerate our columns, as well as an edit button.
The problem is, I’d very much like to do so, if ASP. But I can’t set a Data Source property or anything on the Sql Data Source!!! I probably have to read the cells on the Grid View of the selected row, find the controls, get the values from those and insert those into my Data Set. NET forums is how to deal with exceptions like The Grid View 'Grid View1' fired event Row Editing which wasn't handled.The Grid View 'Grid View1' fired event Page Index Changing which wasn't handled.Right now you must be asking yourself how can you get those dictionaries filled out just as if you were bound to a Datasource control?The good news is you CAN do it(this is what this blog post is all about right? This is probably one of the worst things you can do.
