Till now our Grid View is ready to be populated, now let’s write a method to populate the Grid View.To populate the Grid View, I am calling Bind Data() method from Page_Load event after checking Is Post Back property of the page, so the Grid View will only be populated when there is no postback on the page (when the page loads for the first time).


In this method again, I am getting the primary key value using Data Keys property of the Grid View and using it to delete the records from the database.

After successfully deleting records, again I am calling Bind Data() method to rebind the Grid View.

Please note that when you will not bind the data again, Grid View will not change in edit mode.

When Cancel link is clicked on Grid View in edit mode, On Row Canceling Edit event will fire that will call Cancel Record method.

Data Grids are vital controls in many user interfaces.

Hope this article helps to begin working with Grid View control. Right now I have a label turn to visible true and a message when someone either edits or deletes something successfully.

What would you do if you wanted to have an event trigger when you click on the "cancel" button during the delete process. When a person starts to delete another item and decides to cancel the delete, the old message from the previously edited or deleted item still shows. ya,its how can I use the button field for the edit and delete in the template field.suppose i used that controls,what kind of events could I used for edit successfully?

You can notice that I have kept Required Field Validator too inside the Edit Item Template as I want the textbox to be validated for empty data.
