I am handling the updating of my gridview using a button below the gridview.

I want to be able to hide the update link when you are editing a record, but keep the cancel link.

any ideas ??

Just set the Visible Property of the Button to False
on the Row_Editing event of the Grid
and show it back again on Cnacel or Update event

this is a link, not a button. i can see all of the controls and access them using their name, but cannot see the update and cancel links by id.

when i look at the source they don't seem to have names that i can refer to.

any ideas ?

Oh OK I got your point....You want to hide the Normal "Update" link that the Grid shows in each column when you edit the Row, because you would handle the Update from a separate button. Is it ?

Then try this...

On the Row_Created event of the Grid write this
       
        If (e.Row.RowState And DataControlRowState.Edit) Then
            e.Row.Cells(0).Controls.RemoveAt(0)
        End If

This assumes that the first row is where the "Update" and "Cancel" buttons in the same order
(otherwise you  might need to change the index in the code above)
