I have a detailsview (see attached code) if i show the delete button, the cancel button does not appear even if is set to true; if I disable the delete button, then the cancel button appears again.

how to have the 3 button on the same row ?
<asp:DetailsView ID="DetailsView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="False"
        DataKeyNames="PhotoId" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSourceDetailsView" HorizontalAlign="Center" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="3" GridLines="Vertical" Width="500px" meta:resourcekey="DetailsView1Resource1">
        <Fields>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="PhotoId" HeaderText="PhotoId" InsertVisible="False"
                ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="PhotoId" meta:resourcekey="BoundFieldResource1" />
            <asp:ImageField DataImageUrlField="Percorso" HeaderText="Photo" ReadOnly="True" meta:resourcekey="ImageFieldResource1">
                <ControlStyle Height="20%" Width="20%" />
            </asp:ImageField>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Categoria" HeaderText="Categoria" SortExpression="Categoria" meta:resourcekey="BoundFieldResource2" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Percorso" HeaderText="Percorso" ReadOnly="True"
                SortExpression="Percorso" Visible="False" meta:resourcekey="BoundFieldResource3" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Titolo" HeaderText="Titolo" SortExpression="Titolo" meta:resourcekey="BoundFieldResource4" />

I haven't used DetailsView but if I'm not mistaken, the Cancel button will show up in EDIT mode when used along with Delete button.

If you want to show three buttons in a row, you can use the button field.

You can use button field for all the three buttons. And set the default ones as False. but ofcourse this doesnt solve the problem of why the default ones are working properly.

I had the insertbutton set to true but the showedit button set to false; I set the insertbutton property to false as I do not need to insert and now it works fine, the cancel button appears again in edit mode

Glad you worked it out. :)

There's a typo in my previous post. It should be: why the default ones are NOT working properly. lol ;)
