A Grid View Update Event Args object is passed to the event-handling method, which enables you to determine the index of the current row and to indicate that the update operation should be canceled.To cancel the update operation, set the collections, if necessary, before the values are passed to the data source.
Yes, I did put the breakpoint at the Row Updating line (and not in the function).In this example, I am going to retrieve values from categories table of Northwind database. Drag a Grid View into the Web Form and assign Data Key Names property with the primary key column i.e. In the gdview_Row Editing and gdview_Row Deleting event, we have used the below code to retrieve categoryid from datakey of Grid View, int catid = int. I am using a SQLData Source to populate my gridview in ASP. When I hit Edit, the textboxes appear and I am able to edit my values. I am using a SQLData Source to populate my gridview in ASP. When I hit Edit, the textboxes appear and I am able to edit my values. In the Row Editing function, the edit textboxes appear and I can get the "old" values Then the page renders, I edit the textboxes and hit Update.I'm having a very hard time understand what would prevent your event from being fired.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.
