Hi,

For the gridview in 2.0 can someone please tell me how to reference the below <asp:commandfield> in the code behind? I can get the whole column (gvProject.columns(0)), but not each individual control per row.

Should be something like gvProject.rows(index).findcontrol(id) , but there is no id for this control an none can be assigned.

Anyone?

<asp:GridView  onrowupdating="gvProject_RowUpdating"  ID="gvProject"  runat="server" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSourceProject"  ForeColor="White" GridLines="None" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowPaging="True" Width="100%" AlternatingRowStyle-BorderStyle="None" AlternatingRowStyle-BorderColor="White" BorderStyle="None" BorderColor="White" EditRowStyle-BorderStyle="None" EditRowStyle-BorderColor="White" EmptyDataRowStyle-BorderStyle="None" EmptyDataRowStyle-BorderColor="White" FooterStyle-BorderStyle="None" FooterStyle-BorderColor="White" HeaderStyle-BorderStyle="None" HeaderStyle-BorderColor="White" PagerStyle-BorderStyle="None" PagerStyle-BorderColor="White" RowStyle-BorderStyle="None" RowStyle-BorderColor="White" SelectedRowStyle-BorderStyle="None" SelectedRowStyle-BorderColor="White">
                       
                    <Columns >             
                                         
                     <asp:CommandField  buttontype="Image" ValidationGroup="UpdateGroup" ShowEditButton="True" CancelImageUrl=".\Images\Plus.gif" EditImageUrl=".\Images\Plus.gif" UpdateImageUrl=".\Images\Plus.gif"  >
                       <ItemStyle VerticalAlign="Top" Height="20px"   />
                   </asp:CommandField>

handle the RowDataBind event

and use this for all rows
e.Row.Cells[i].Text for text or
e.Row.Cells[i].Controls[i] for controls in that cell

use above or

gvProject.Rows[gvProject.SelectedIndex].Cells[x]   //x is buttonindex

or use template field in the columns -  more flexibility
               <asp:TemplateField>
                     <ItemTemplate>
                          <asp:Button ID="itemButton" runat="server" CommandName="ButtonClick" Text="Click" />
                     </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>

then handle it in the rowcommand eventhandler
        .....
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server"  OnRowCommand="GridView1_RowCommand" .....

    public void GridView1_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {

        if (e.CommandName == "ButtonClick")
        {
            this.TextBox1.Text = "ButtonClick";
        }

    }


by using templated field you can use this sort of thing
gvProject.rows(index).findcontrol("itemButton")
