When I hit Edit, the textboxes appear and I am able to edit my values. 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.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).My problem lies in that the click on the Update Image Button posts back, but neither the Row Command nor Row Updating events get triggered.I have set the requisite attributes in the Grid View tag. Within the Item Template I have an Image Buttong with a Command Name of "Edit".This works as expected and I can put a breakpoint in the Row Command event handler to see the "Event" command name.
You have to make sure that you aren't setting your Grid View's data when it is not postback.Perhaps your required Value will raise an error report. On Row Deleting - can call registered event handlers" I couldnt figure out how to continue this thread, but the issues in it are related so i'm including it as a reference.I know this happens after an update command happens on the database, but I want to write my own custom update.The Row Updating event fires fine , but gv2_Row Updated does not fire? Width="99%" Header Style-Css Class="ph Head" Css Class="phone Table" Grid Lines="Both" Auto Generate Edit Button="true" Auto Generate Delete Button="true" On Row Editing="gv2_Row Editing" On Row Canceling Edit="gv2_Row Conceling Edit" On Row Updated="gv2_Row Updated" On Row Updating="gv2_Row Updating" Edit Row Style-Back Color="Light Yellow" Data Key Names="id External ID" If you're manually binding data to the Grid View (not using a Data Source ID), then the Row Updating event will fire after an update command, but the Row Updated event will never fire. Aaron I should have been more specific as to why I need the Row Updated to fire. Can any one suggest me how I can get rowupdating event to fire in such a condition? Also You might have missnamed the control to validate for the required fieldvalidatore. If it does not solve the problem show us ur code so that we can help better In case of client side validations postback itself should not happen. In my case post back is happening and all other events including rowcommand event is firing with the command name as update. Hi, I have a gridview with some template columns and have set Autogenereate Edit Columns="True". But when I add a required field validator to one of the columns in edit item template rowupdating event is not firing. Instead of having Auto Generated Edit button, you can manually use Link Buttons.
