Net gridview rowupdating not firing

(Note, in the gridview the Enable View State="False" - if I set it to True I get the standard "Failed to load viewstate. error) One strange thing that I've noticed that makes me think it's a View State problem is that if I change the Command Name of the Update button to "Edit" that postback event does get captured in the Row Command event... Storing datatable in View State is not a good practice as it increases the size of your page and reduces the performance, also View State can be deciphered on the client side, so the Data Table is not secure.The Script Manager is in the Master Page Please help me....

This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the edit operation, whenever this event occurs.

A Grid View Edit 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 edit operation should be canceled.

This doesn't work because I set the data source like follows. String' does not contain a property with the name ' Role'.

Get All Roles(); So it gives an error ' System.

-Frinny Hi all, I seem to be having the same issue but I don't quite follow the trouble with the above post. Can you explain the T/S a little more or maybe point me to another post that may have already covered it?

It's quite common that people create the data source and bind this source to the Grid View in their Page_Load() method.

Welcome to the Coding Forums, the place to chat about anything related to programming and coding languages.

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.

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 have a Gridview with Auto Generate Columns="False".
