Hi Experts

I am updating my database using multithreading. The method used is the SqlDataAdapter.Update(). If the user presses cancel, I would like to stop the operation. For this I handle the RowUpdated event of the adapter but does anyone know how to stop the adapter Update() method?

Thanks

I have the event, it's ok. How to stop the adapter? Because I catch the event, but the adapter will still go on after I handle it.

hmm, I posted the previous comment without looking at docs or code, and apparently dataset or dataadapter doesn't have an update event.
what event are you using?

If you update through a dataset, what happens if you call a dataset.acceptchanges.
I'll be on my dev machine in a bit, i'll be able to check my posts better but for now bear with me please

I can't call AcceptChanges, because this will disallow a second save attempt. I use the RowUpdated event of the data adapter and it fires just fine after every row is updated - perfect place to stop the udpate operation. The only question is how.

It's the same: both AcceptChanges and RejectChanges will change the dataset so, that a second attempt to update the database will consider that no records need update. Also RejectChanges will lose everything the user made, so both don't work.

according to:

you could either cancel it with an error or skip rows (which if i understand you correctly would have the same effect as cancelling)
