Is Post Back) otherwise you'll wipe out the new values everytime before the updating event gets called.
I believe that databinding on every postback is the cause but that's not something that I can change right now, same goes with the autogeneratedcolumns setting. I'm not sure if I know what you mean about 2 way binding. If you meanam I using Bind instead of Eval in my HTML, then yes. And the result of your code is no different than my version or what I was doing before, which was just using the findcontrol method, and that just returns what was in the grid when it was first binded to the database on page load. Yes ok i think i know what you are probably doing wrong.
Then there are a couple more steps to make it to where you adding the selected value in the update) Yes, you are correct, I am not using any datasources for the gridview, but in the Itemtemplate and the Edit Item Template the Text parameter is set equal to a bind statement as follows (see the example further down where i ref a datasource for the ddl): Or in the case of the drop down list I am binding with the Selected Value parameter, but of course you can see I lied and am pointing to a different datasource completely for my list. you can always just turn the boundfield into a template field then put whatever control you want in templatefield then bind that control to any datasource you'd like (once again I prefer linq over all of the rest). This is not necessarily a bad thing, we can still get all the functionality you can get from going from the codebehind. ♦ I prefer to use linq, but the fact is that when your using controls like the Grid View or Detials View etc.. I know its very annoying and hard to get the data out of the data controls (gridview in this case), but there are other things you can do to make it easier. The reason is we don't fill the values unless your are bound to a datasource control.
