Finally, to pull your hidden value that you’ve dubbed a Data Key in the Grid View’s subroutine.
Today was spent mostly tackling the Grid View’s Update/Edit functionality, and I got incredibly frustrated, at first. So be sure to rebind your Grid View at the end of your event handler. I’ve got a pretty good handle on it as I’ve been doing it for several years, and can help with a lot, but I definitely don’t claim to know everything.
This was my first foray into this part of the Grid View’s functionality, since I haven’t really had to develop anything using it since the switch to 2.0, as everything in Data Grids still functioned fine. The Row Updating event is where it gets tricky, since pulling values is not necessarily intuitive. That’s where you come in 🙂 If you’re interested in joining the discussion to post your own problems, fixes, etc.
After working with Data Grids so efficiently, I was scared that Grid Views were going to be a million times more complex.
