I'm loading data from two different tables from separate databases
I then want to be able  to delete a row from the grid by clicking on a delete button
The delete button removes a row from db1.dbo.tblA X based on x.email

GridViewShowA.Visible = true;
String objConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyConnection"].ToString();
String strSQL = "SELECT x.office as Office, x.email as Email, z.fname as 'First Name', z.lname as 'Last Name', ";
strSQL += "z.title as Title ";
strSQL += "FROM db1.dbo.tblA X ";
strSQL += "JOIN db2.dbo.tblA Z ";
strSQL += " ON x.email = z.email ";
strSQL += "WHERE x.office = '" + DropDownListoffice.SelectedValue.ToString() + "' ";
strSQL += "AND z.email = x.email";
SqlDataAdapter objAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, objConnection);
DataSet dataSet = new DataSet();
objAdapter.Fill(dataSet, "myData");
DataTable dataTable = dataSet.Tables[0];
GridViewShowA.DataSource = dataTable.DefaultView;
GridViewShowA.DataBind();


I know that I can add a delete button on the aspx file but I'd prefer to do this from the code behind file. So during the build of the gridview, can I construct a delete button? Something like:

Gridview.CreateButton("Delete")?

Then when the user clicks on the delete button for a given row they should be able to delete the row from the db1.dbo.tblA X based on x.email. Something like this?


gridview.deletebutton.onclick(DeleteRow(email));


protected void DeleteRow(email);
{
  delete from sql server where email = gridview.deletebutton.email
}

Any ideas?

In my grids where I allow the user to delete a row I just add a column that is a buttonfield and the buttontype = "Image".  Then I put a nice little image of an X in the ImageUrl.  You can assign the column a CommandName ="Delete".  Then attach the grid to a procedure for the RowCommand event and in the procedure you can do your delete.  That is what I do anyway.  When the user clicks the button it fires the RowCommand event which calls the procedure you created.

Procedure example:

protected void grdBondList_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)

{
DO YOUR DELETE HERE!
}

Hope this helps.  If you need more detail let me know.

Almost forgot, you need to check the e object to see which button was pressed if you have say a edit button and a delete button.

protected void grdList_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)

{
  if (e.CommandName == "Delete")
  {
    "delete code"
  }
}

Here is my aspx code:

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewSA" runat="server" BorderColor="Silver" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px">
  <HeaderStyle BackColor="#E0E0E0" Font-Bold="True" />
  <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#FF8000" BorderStyle="Solid" />
  <Columns>
   <asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Button" CommandName="Delete" HeaderText="Remove" ShowHeader="True" Text="Remove" />
  </Columns>
</asp:GridView>

code behind:
protected void GridViewSA_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)

{
  if (e.CommandName == "Delete")
  {
    "delete code"
  }
}

Is this how it should appear?
