In data driven web sites, users are normally allowed to view data and administrators are allowed to add, edit or delete data.In this tutorial I will show you how you can create an editable Grid View control for administrators to modify database records directly into the Grid View control.NET application by specifying command syntax at design time and, where possible, through the use of stored procedures. For example, the following code ensures that the deleted rows of the table are processed first, then the updated rows, and then the inserted rows. You must explicitly set the commands before calling event and setting the Status to Skip Current Row. NVar Char, 15, "Category Name") Dim parameter As Sql Parameter = _ adapter.
On contrary, Data Grid can declaratively bind a Data Source control but it can do it for only displaying data.All other database operations have to be coded manually.You can also customize the look and feel of each page by setting various properties like Pager Style property and using Pager Template to change look and style of buttons and pages.Editing the Grid View control can be an incredibly easy feature to add for certain database tables, especially those who have no foreign key associated and can easily be edited through the use of a standard Text Box web control as shown in the figure below: 1.You need to include the Grid View Command Field column to add Edit, Update and Cancel Buttons in the Grid View. You need to include Template Field for every column you want to provide Editing because Template Field provides you both Item Template and Edit Item Template to create interface for two separate Grid View modes. You need to handle Grid View events such as Row Editing, Row Canceling Edit and Row Updating to provide desired editing functionality.
