How do I keep my formview from incrementing paging on postback?

I have a formview that updates a few database fields via stored procedure when the user clicks the "Update" Link Button. The page needs to be in edit mode by default and then only show certain results after the user clicks the update button. I have my results in the ItemTemplate (READONLY MODE) and my page to be updated (I actually only need my radio buttons to update fields in the db...think as if you were taking a quiz...selecting an radio button for the answer)

I DO NOT want the page to show any Pager items while in EDIT mode...only in READONLY MODE after the database has been updated. I want the user to be able to go to the next record only if the current record has been updated(an answer has been chosen)...

So, the results page needs to show the Paging Links...the problem is that in my FORMVIEW, since the Update causes a postback, it wants to increment my paging. I don't want it to increment unless:

1) the user has already clicked the update button
2)they are in readonly mode on the results page.

Does this make sense? I have tried everything. Please help.  I don't want to cross page post back because all the data (results and everything is available in my database field. I only want to do some calculations, update the row and then display the pager items FOR THE SAME RECORD on the readonly results itemtemplate.
Please HELP!!!

To disable paging in the Edit mode:
If (Me.FormView1.DefaultMode <> FormViewMode.ReadOnly) Then
    Me.FormView1.AllowPaging = False
Else
    Me.FormView1.AllowPaging = True
End If
To change paging after update:
In the ItemUpdated event handler, add these lines:

Me.FormView1.DefaultMode = FormViewMode.ReadOnly
Me.FormView1.AllowPaging = True
If (Me.FormView1.PageIndex + 1) <= Me.FormView1.PageCount Then
    Me.FormView1.PageIndex = Me.FormView1.PageIndex + 1
Else
    Me.FormView1.PageIndex = 0
End If

It has nothing to do with how you handle your data.

oh, ok, well, it is not working. When I click the update button...it goes to the next record. I don't want it to do that. I want it to show the readonly mode of the same page before i can move to the next record. Please help.:) thanks so much.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
In that case, all you need is these two lines:
Me.FormView1.DefaultMode = FormViewMode.ReadOnly
Me.FormView1.AllowPaging = True
