Trying to override functionality of UpdateButton in FormView for EditItemTemplate

Hi,

I want a page with a FormView to save the record but to go to some other page (not the current page).

At first I tried setting the PostBackUrl to the new page.  It went to the new page but was not saving the form data.

So then I tried capturing the UpdateButton_Click event.  This is what it looks like:

    protected void UpdateButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        FormView1.UpdateItem(true);
        LinkButton lb = (LinkButton)FormView1.FindControl("UpdateButton");
        lb.PostBackUrl = "Deal.aspx?BookId=" + Request["BookId"];
       
    }

I put a Breakpoint in this routine and it does hit this but it must be too early (or too late) for the PostbackUrl to be changed.

I don't have to do it like above if someone has a better way of doing it.

Thanks

Would a Server.Transfer("Deal.aspx?BookId=" + Request["BookId"]); work?

Place this in the UpdateButton_Click event?

Hey Bob,

Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't seem to work. Here is the code that I used:

    protected void UpdateButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        FormView1.UpdateItem(true);
        Server.Transfer("Default.aspx");
    }

I also tried the FormView1.UpdateItem(false) but it stays on the same form.

Thanks

Does the UpdateButton_Click event fire?  I wonder if Server.Transfer is unreachable code.
