Populate detailsview from gridview via generic list

I am populating a gridview from a generic list as follows

      ProgrammeCollection programList = new ProgrammeCollection();        

        //the "PopulateAllUsersFromDatabase" method calls the
        //"UserDataHelper.PopulateDataList" method that returns a generic collection (UserCollection) of user objects      
        programList.PopulateAllProgrammesFromDatabase();

        //bind the grid
        UserGridView.DataSource = programList;
        UserGridView.DataBind();
     
I need to be able to use the detailsview control with the grid.  For example, if
you select a column in the datagrid then the detailsview is populated with the
record, eventually I want to be able to edit details in the view.

Regards

If you are binding to a GridView, then binding to a DetailsView is very similar.  You would need to define the Fields that would bind to the properties for the bound object.

Example:

        <asp:DetailsView ID="DetailsView1" runat="server" Height="50px" Style="z-index: 100;
            left: 60px; position: absolute; top: 36px" Width="125px" AutoGenerateRows="False">
            <Fields>
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Address" />
            </Fields>
        </asp:DetailsView>
 
public class Person
{
    private string _name = "";
    private string _address = "";

    public string Name
    {
        get { return _name; }
        set { _name = value; }
    }

    public string Address
    {
        get { return _address; }
        set { _address = value; }
    }

}

Try this:

BoundField field = new BoundField();
field.DataField = "Name";
this.DetailsView.Fields.Add(field);

field = new BoundField();
field.DataField = "Address";
this.DetailsView.Fields.Add(field);
