GridView Control

hi all... i am using this section of code to capture a row cell that is clicked by the user...

 public void DataGridID_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        int l;
        int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);
        // Retrieve the row that contains the button clicked by the user from the Rows collection.
        GridViewRow row = GridView1.Rows[index];
        l = int.Parse(row.Cells[2].Text);       //Get id

....
    }

the problem is that when i add sorting and paging to the the grid via the "smart tag" the following line "int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);" catches the column value which is a string and errors out.  What is the correct way to go about paging and sorting my grid using the following code i have posted.

to use dataSourceID, you need to you use the new datasourcecontrols of .net 2.0.

Build a datasource control, by dragging one from toolbox. Once you have that, you can use the name of that datasourcecontrol to assign to the datasourceid.

You cannot assign a dataset as a datasoureid. It has to be a classname that is of type DataSourceControls.

Like this -
(following goes in the aspx file)

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="CustomersList" Runat="server"
SelectCommand="SELECT CompanyName, ContactName, ContactTitle, City FROM Customers"
ConnectionString=
"Data Source=127.0.0.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=Northwind">
</asp:SqlDataSource>

<asp:GridView id="MyDataGrid" DataSourceID="CustomersList" runat="server"/>

Or in your code (cs file) -
MyDataGrid.DataSourceID = "CustomersList";

  int index = e.Item.ItemIndex;

You might have already done this, but if not...

Do you use the DataSourceID instead of DataSource to bind?
If you use DataSourceID to bind, then you will not have to worry about paging or sorting events. They dont need to be handled..You cannot assign a regular DataSet or DataView to DataSourceID

You need to assign, SQLDataSource or ObjectDataSource..SQLDataSource can be used to bind a query written in Oracle, SQL Server, or any other Database. Its not like your SqlDataAdaptore or OracleDataAdapter in framework 1.1

kraffay ,

There is not an option for e.Item.ItemIndex;
 only CommandArgument, CommandName, CommandSource, Equals, GetHashCode, GetType and ToString ...


Any more suggestions
