Cannot add new row to gridview on button click

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I got a function to load a grid view and works fine. Then, I got a button, when click, I wanted to add a new row into the grid, what I did is I add a new to to the dataset and rebind the dataset to the grid view.

The problem I faced is that is it able to add a new row, but it only shows ONE column only, which is the most left column.

protected void gvDetail_AddNewRow(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            string strSQL = null;
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();

            lblError.Text = "";

            strSQL = "Select * From tmp_Detail_Data_vaio1045xjh02l55bw4vtrmg_09282010_132652";

            ds = clsDataAccess.clsDataAccess.RetrieveDataSet(clsDataAccess.clsDataAccess.ConnStringDataCollection, strSQL);

            if (ds != null)
                ContentPlaceHolder myContent = (ContentPlaceHolder)Page.Master.FindControl("CPHDetail");
                GridView gvView = (GridView)myContent.FindControl("gvDetail");


                gvView.DataSource = ds;




Any help?

Gridview and delete option - Button click displays message

Hi, I have a gridview connected to a sql database that allows the user to delete the record. I used the ASP.net automatic "options" for this. However, I would like when the user deletes a record, a message (textbox) appears in the form to say the record has been deleted. Please can anyone provide some sample codes?   Thanks in advance.

Update a field in a gridview to False on a Button Click

 Hi, Ive got a list of records in a gridview (from an SQLDataSource) where a field value is set to True.  I've also added a "reset" button in a template field at the start of the row in the Gridview. What I would like to do is allow the user to click the reset button on a particular row and 'reset' the true value to 'false' (updating the source data). Are there any idiot proof tutorials to do this??? Many thanks for your help! Fiorano

Build xml file from gridview values on button click

We are looking to add GoogleMaps to our application. With that said we are going to be using the geocoding api to pass in the lat and long values to pin point locations on the the map. Reading thru the documentation we can pass in the values via XML, so we would like to see how we can take the lat and long values from our gridview and pass that to the API if and when somone clicks on the button to show the map.. The process will work like so, you arrive at the search page, you complete a search, in most if not all cases, you will always get multiple results presented in a gridview. If you should to view them all on the map, you click button and it needs to map out each location on the map. So is there anyway to pull from the gridview the lat, long and description to pass into the API?   Any links to sites that i can review would be great. thanks. 

Gridview Link Button control click event


Respected Reader,

I have  Web page that uses LinkButton control inside Template Fields of Gridview.

I am trying to work on LinkButton Click event and trying to preserve the Value of LinkButton that user click, and based on that value, i want to refresh tha page data.

I used CommandName and CommandArgument property of Linkbutton, but i can use that property only in GridView_RowCommand method by checking e.CommandName expression. But the problem with that Gridview_RowCommand event fire after all other page_load activity. So the value never used in the page_load event to refresh the data in all other control.

I also tried to use OnClick Method, Session variable and Hidden variable. but when i run Response.Redirect method from Gridview_RowCommand, it clear all the Session and Hidden variable values. also tried (Response.Redirect(,false)) method but never got success.

Any suggestion will be appricated in advance.

Add a button to update in 1 click to a gridview control


Hi all, I know that from the title probably everyone is going to think, "why add an update if is already there!"  the reason is because I want to update/delete/add with one click, instead of click the edit button, modify the data and then click the update button.

This is my scenario, I have a gridview with information of tools(screw driver, hammer, etc) one of the columns is the status, so what I want is to add a button that the user can click and chance the status from "Assigned" to "Active" this is what I have so far:

<asp:GridView ID="GV1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="4"
                        DataKeyNames="IdTool" DataSourceID="Tool" ForeColor="#333333" SelectedRowStyle-BackColor="AliceBlue"
                        SelectedRowStyle-Font-Bold="true" Width="605px">
                        <FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                            <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="False">

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

GridView Javascript Click Row and Ajax

This article shows 2 common tasks with the ASP.NET GridView: Binding a List (generic) of objects as DataSource and on clicking a row, getting the values of the selected row by a javascript function. In the example a List with User-objects is displayed. On clicking a row containing the data of a User-object, the Id of the object is used to get the address of the user by an Ajax-call and display it in a details-field.
