For example: if the value of the description was "Hello how are you" and then the users hits Edit and changes this value to " am fine", in the C# file, the value obtained in the string description is still "Hello how are you". Now I moved this binding after querying module into the (! Is Post Back and click edit on the grid I no longer see the grid. How can I obtain the new value in string description? David I suggested that the Row Updating function was being blocked by the . Data Bind() in the Row Command event so that only the Edit command will activate it (take it out of Row Editing). Twice for Row Command (1 for Row Editing and 1 for Row Canceling) and once for Row Editing. I am going to try and create this not as a web application but rather as a website and see if I notice any differences. Data Bind() in Row Editing, I said nothing about what might happen if you removed it. Then set your breakpoints in Row Command, Row Editing, and Row Updating and we'll see what happens. David OK, I'm offically out of bullets, at least for now. If I get some time, I'll see if I can duplicate this, but I'm suspecting there's something out there that neither of us have looked at yet. I have a break on the Sub statement for the Row Updating handler ... The Edit and Cancel buttons fire the Row Command event, however, the Update button does not. No breakpoint was triggered when I hit the Update button. I truly appreciate all the suggestions you've given.
I am confused at this point on why my markup and code behind is not touching the Row Updating event when Update button is clicked. The routine loading of the product table now happens only on the first pass through the code behind.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).I put a breakpoint on the Row Updating event handler and found that the event is not fired. I put a breakpoint on the Row Updating event handler and found that the event is not fired. 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.
