I think the problem is that In the gridview and the object data source you have specified sponsorid. but it is not specified in the UpdateSponsorUser in the sponsorBLL.cs.

<asp:BoundField DataField="sponsorid" HeaderText="sponsorid" InsertVisible="False"
                                            ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="sponsorid" Visible="False" />
                                    </Columns>

and in the data source...
<asp:Parameter Name="sponsorid" Type="Int32" />

but it is not present in the mehtod..
  UpdateSponsorUser(string sname, string semail, string webaddress, string sdesc, string tel, string address)



Good Luck!

I added the sponsorid to the sponsor but still did not work..is the session sponsorid supposed to be present parameters for the update method?  I am trying to update a row of tables based on the session passed..e.g.update sname, semail, webaddres etc. WHERE sponsor.id = Session["sponsorid"]; thanks for your help

Hi,

I am unsure about this but it seems as if it wants the sponsorid as a parameter to your UpdateSponsorUser.

But I'm only guessing here.

[System.ComponentModel.DataObjectMethodAttribute(System.ComponentModel.DataObjectMethodType.Update, false)]
    public propview.sponsorsDataTable UpdateSponsorUser(string sname, string semail, string webaddress, string sdesc, string tel, string address)
    {
        return UpdateSponsorUser(sname, semail, webaddress, sdesc, tel, address, original_sponsorid);
    }

That was a mistake I guess..the sponsor id is been passed as a session in the where clause e.g. WHERE id = Session["user"]..who do I include that in my DAL, or pls advise on how  I can pass session to the query for updating using the objectdatasource and gridview..Assistance much appreciated.

I would not recommend you to use Session objects in the DAL, that is more of a UI thing. Doing so would mean that your DAL will need a System.Web(?) reference which I do not think is suitable for a DAL layer.

A better solution in my opinion is if you pass it along with your methods.

Just my 2c..

can you show me an implementation or at least lead me in the right direction, how would I pass it along with my methods?

This is where you are getting that field name from:
OldValuesParameterFormatString="original_{0}"

This would be one solution (there are always many when developing software :) )...

If you have 3 layers..
1. The UI; where Session["user"] lives
2. The Business layer; MyBusinessClass.DoAction(string user);
3. The DAL layer; MyDalClass.PerformDataAceesStuff(string user);

In this scenario, in the UI you would call MyBusinessClass.DoAction(Session["user"].ToString());
And in the Business layer, you would call DAL with MyDalClass.PerformDataAccessStuff(user);
Know you have the user details in the DAL.

There are other options as well, you might put it into the constructor.

Hope that helps.
Good Luck!
