In rowupdating in
The textbox is visible when the gridview is in "edit mode", and the label is visible when the gridview is in "normal mode" 2) When I place a breakpoint in the rowupdating method, it looks like the values are changed as I would expect them to be. Update() End Sub Thanks, Qin, Thanks for the response. Q I hope you understand my question, all i need to do is replace the text box controls with a dropdown list when i am editing a row in ...But when the Gridview displays, the "1111" isn't there - but the changes made by the user are! Hi juriggs, If the textbox and label are bound to data source, you needn't to set the text manually. You were right, I am binding the Grid View with a Sql Data Source. Gridview edit mode I have a gridview that has a bound dropdownlist inside its Edit Item Template.After searching long and hard I found a great article that solved my issue.
We have received many posts in forums about this popular web control, so this sample provides a complete sample for showing how to implement these basic functions of this control.
If he clicks edit (or) in the edit mode he can be able to see the Textbox.
The above piece of code will also do the same as label in Item Template and Textbox in the Edit Item Template.
If the grid contains templated columns or is bound to some of the fields from the data source, the Values and Old Values must be updated to add those missing values.
Otherwise missing cells will be nulled out by the auto update operation. The dictionary consists of the new values to be set on the row's unbound cells.
