I subsequently changed the code behind to explicitly bind to the product table during Row Cancel and Row Edit events. So, the Row Update event didn't fire because there was no indication of a Row Update existing.
In the template field I will Place a label or some controls, So that it’s very easy to access those controls in the code behind by using Find Control method. Item Template is the content to display for the items in the Template Field.protected void Grid View1_Pre Render(object sender, Event Args e) Hi all, thanks for you code ramireddyindia, but that doesn't work if i build i have this error : Error 2 'System.Event Args' does not contain a definition for 'Row Index' Any idea ?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.See this example for you reference: Restrict number of characters to be entered in the Multi Line Text Box you need to write that setting attributes to that control code in gridview pre-render event, in that u need to check its edit index.if it is not equal to -1, then you need to add attributes to that.Hi everybody, I'm a beginner with asp net 2.0 and i have a grid view that i bind with some data comes from database.I have place an edit button and when i click on the edit button, some text box appears and two button (update, cancel) When the user click on the button update i try to VERIFY that the users has NOT ENTER MORE THAN 20 characters!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.
