How to update row in gridview using the AutoGenerateEditButton RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've been trying to use the AutoGenerateEditButton to edit a simple row in the gridview but the problem is that I cannot manage to find a way of getting the new value and change to the old one.

    All the example that I found on the web were using textboxes to compare the values and than edit the row but my problem is that when I use the AutoGenerateEditButton I creates the textbox by itself, so it has no ID reference for me to compare,here's the code:


    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" 

                        Height="16px" Width="609px" HorizontalAlign="Center" HeaderStyle-BackColor="Gray" 


                            onrowediting="GridView1_RowEditing" AutoGenerateEditButton="true" AutoGenerateDeleteButton="true" 


                            onrowdeleting="GridView1_RowDeleting" onrowupdating="GridView1_RowUpdating">

                        <RowStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />

                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="Gray" />

                        <EditRowStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />



    I'm filling the gridview information from a datatable:


        protected void ListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)


            DataTable dados = loadData.activeDate(ListBox1.SelectedValue);

            GridView1.DataSource = dados;





    What I'm trying to do is to get the new value from the gridview, save it into variable and than save the new value into the old datatable. If I manage to do that I'll be able the read the information from the already modified datatable and filling the gridview again, with the new information.

    Could anyone help how to do that??
