Update using DataGridView Control

I am trying to teach myself how to use the DataGridViewControl.  What I would like to do is simply display data from a table of my MySql Database, and then click on any row item, edit the item,  and update my mysql databse after the user presses enter or clicks save.

 I have been able to display data from one of my MySql tables, but I can't seem to get a grasp on how I can  update my database with the edited cell. It appears as this would be easier if I was using SqlServer, but i must use MySql. I posted my code that I used to load the DataGridViewControl.

private void InitializeDataGridView(DataSet ds)
        {
            try
            {
                for (int i = 0; i < ds.Tables.Count; i++)
                {
                    DataRow newRow = ds.Tables[0].NewRow();

                    newRow.ItemArray = ds.Tables[i].Rows[0].ItemArray;

                    ds.Tables[0].Rows.Add(newRow);
                }
                dataGridView.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];
                dataGridView.Refresh();
            }

Holy Cow! LeeHenry I am SOOO sorry, I totally dropped the ball on your question!! Somehow I let it slip through the cracks and I missed your reply, I apologize!!

To answer your question (if you don't already have an answer) it sounds like you're almost there and you just need to wire up the events that you need to use. This is actually done in Initialize components (or you can do it anywhere you need to). basically it follow the standard delegate format that you may or may not have seen in windown forms.

dataGridView.RowValidating += new System.EventHandler(this.NameOfYourFunction);

The whole process can be confusing because Microsoft isn't very consistant in the implementation. It called wiring up an event.

This link gives a really good explaination of event wiring and how to do it when the IDE doesn't do it for you...

Again I apologize for dropping the ball here... Lem'me know how it goes and if yo uhave anymore questions...

Dave,

I saw this example on the mysql forums. I've already tried to get this to work.  When I copy and paste the exact code, and use the country database like they mention, I can display the information, but nothing else is working. I set breakpoints on all the other functions (dataGridView_RowValidating etc...), and they are not reaching them. I didn't see anything in the properties of the dataGridView where I needed to specify these functions anywhere. I am probably missing something simple..??? any suggestions

AlexNex,

I think your example was for SqlServer.

gauthampj,

I'm going to take a look at yours later on tomm..

thanks for the tips
