In this example, I am going to retrieve values from categories table of Northwind database. Drag a Grid View into the Web Form and assign Data Key Names property with the primary key column i.e. In the gdview_Row Editing and gdview_Row Deleting event, we have used the below code to retrieve categoryid from datakey of Grid View, int catid = int. Save all or press "Ctrl S" and hit "F5" to run the page, the page will look as in the following image: Click on "Edit the Grid View", it will display Textboxes in each cell as in the following image: Edit the value(s) here and click on the Update link, it will update all the data or to remove it click on the "Delete" link above the image shown.
I know how I can edit an entire row in the data grid view, I would like to know how to edit only one column keeping rest of the data the same.
I will be using Sql objects directly into methods to keep the example simple and straight forward.
In practical scenario you should use your existing architecture to populate and update the data.
In this article, I am going to take a simple database table that has following fields: Auto ID - Int, Auto Increment, Primary Key Page Name - Varchar(50) Page Description - Varchar(500) Active - Bit(1) In this article, I am not going to explain the workings of Sql objects but focusing on the events and methods of the Grid View that will help us in updating and deleting the records.
Now let’s start with putting the Grid View on page. Data Key Names="Auto ID" Auto Generate Edit Button="True" On Row Editing="Edit Record" On Row Canceling Edit="Cancel Record" On Row Updating="Update Record" Cell Padding="4" Header Style-Horizontal Align="left" On Row Deleting="Delete Record" Row Style-Vertical Align="Top" Fore Color="#333333" Grid Lines="None" In the above code, I have kept Auto Generate Columns as false so that Grid View will not render all the fields of the data source automatically.
The current code that I have is given below and I would like to know how I would be able to just edit one column and update that data to the data table.
