Created a Dynamic DetailsView (basically adding bound fields to DetailsView fields) and I'm having trouble using OnItemUpdating command.

I can populate the form but I'm unable to capture any values on the update.
asp:
 
<asp:DetailsView ID="DetailViewEdit" 
   runat="server"
   AutoGenerateRows="false" 
   OnItemUpdating="DetailViewEdit_ItemUpdating"
   AutoGenerateEditButton="true"
   DefaultMode="Edit" 
   />
 
.cs code:
 
..
  BoundField bf = new BoundField();
  bf.DataField = field.Key;
  bf.HeaderText = field.Name;
  
  DetailViewEdit.Fields.Add(bf);
 
DetailViewEdit.DataKeyNames = field.Key
DetailViewEdit.DataSource = referenceDataTable;
DetailViewEdit.DataBind();
 
...
protected void DetailViewEdit_ItemUpdating(object sender, DetailsViewUpdateEventArgs e)
{
 
e.NewValues  <-- empty
e.OldValues  <-- empty
e.Keys <-- empty

Pulled changed key/value pairs for use in a custom store procedure call.

I could hack the request form - DetailViewEdit.ClientID.Replace('$', '_')  - but that seems a little too sloppy.


        foreach (DictionaryEntry entry in e.NewValues)
        {
              // New Edits, entry.Key : entry.Value

        }

You have to use the DataKey to capture the values.

http://www.mcse.ms/message2536642.html
protected void DetailsView1_ItemUpdating(object sender,
 
DetailsViewUpdateEventArgs e)
 
{
 
int id = (int)DetailsView1.DataKey[0];
 
TextBox txtName = DetailsView1.FindControl("txtName") as TextBox;
 
string newname = txtName.Text;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Not sure if that example exactly relates as I'm creating the Bound Fields on the fly:

...
  BoundField bf = new BoundField();
  bf.DataField = field.Key;
  bf.HeaderText = field.Name;
 
  DetailViewEdit.Fields.Add(bf);

DetailViewEdit.DataSource = referenceDataTable;
DetailViewEdit.DataBind();


DetailViewEdit.FindControl(field.Key) as TextBox;  <-- is null

Found the solution.


thx.
        for (int i = 0; i < DetailViewEdit.Fields.Count; i++)
        {
            DataControlFieldCell cellNormal = detailsView.Rows[i].Cells[0] as DataControlFieldCell;
            detailsView.Fields[i].ExtractValuesFromCell(e.Keys, cellNormal, DataControlRowState.Normal, true);
 
            DataControlFieldCell cellEdit = detailsView.Rows[i].Cells[1] as DataControlFieldCell;
            detailsView.Fields[i].ExtractValuesFromCell(e.NewValues, cellEdit, DataControlRowState.Edit, false);
        }
 
 
        foreach (string key in e.Keys.Keys)
        {
            Utilities.Log.WriteFileEntry("Key(" + key + ") - Value:" + e.Keys[key], Log.Priority.Medium);
        }
 
        foreach (string key in e.NewValues.Keys)
        {
            Utilities.Log.WriteFileEntry("NewValues Key(" + key + ") - Value:" + e.NewValues[key], Log.Priority.Medium);
        }
