Aspxgridview rowupdating event not firing
didn't I create a database and totally duplicate YOUR grid so there could be a few other things wrong. I have everything that is talked about even the Data Key Name but still nothing gets updated. Hi All, I've had the exact same problem and came across a post on this site mentioning that if you have NULL fields in your data and checked the "Use Optimistic Concurrency" option when configuring your Sql Datasource, then the update won't work. Unfortunately, turning off Use Optimistic Concurrency kind of defeats the safeguard it provides and allows one user to clobber another user's data. I do not know what I have missed or where I have gone wrong. However, I discovered that if you change the Sql Data Source1 control to add or delete columns, a dialog pops asking if you want to "Refresh the Fields and Keys ..." This is where the problem occurs since it clears the Data Key Names entry (the pop-up tells you that, but who read the fine print? Also, you may not want a Drop Down List in the Item Template, but may want to leave it alone as a label and Eval it to the field to which the licensee_id field points. Of course Scott Mitchell has a bunch of online tutorials, although I somehow missed this I am having the same problem but can not get it to work. I was having the exact error until a few moments ago, but I finally got it[:)]. I am using My Sql as the back end.) and here it shows the new or the edited value.Here is an example: // x is a random number, or some key code from the user if(!
