Refresh Issue using AJAX TabPanels

I have a set of 4 AJAX TabPanels, each with a nested UpdatePanel and GridView. My grids have buttons in them that fire off add/update/delete stored procedures.

When deleting an item from Grid 1(Tab 1), I need to refresh Grid 3 (also on Tab3) as Grid 3 will now have different results (Grid 1 has users, grid 3 has tasks - when you remove a user, you remove the connection to a task for that user).

When I click the Delete button on my grid, the stored procedure runs correctly, and Grid 1 refreshes correctly, showing that user has been deleted.  However Tab 3, Grid 3 does not refresh.

At first, I thought it might be because I wasn't telling it to refresh. So I put in a call: UpdatePanel3.Update(); This does nothing. I'm at a loss here.

Instead of updatepanel3.update() try Grid3.databind() - You are refreshing the data on the grid, from the datasource.  That will work if you are using a datasource control.  if you are manually binding to a datatable, you will need to make the row as deleted in the datatable before rebindng it.

Hope this helps,

You're right. I figured it out about 2 seconds after I made the post. I already have a function that does the grid3.bind, so I just called that function, and then the update:

fetchReportTypeListings();
UpdatePanel3.Update();

Worked fantastic. Thanks for confirming that as the correct methodology.

I was pretty sure I had it, but I'm glad you backed me up with your answer, or I'd have debated it well into next week. :)

LOL I can understand that sort of thing.  A good rule of thumb that I always follow:  If it works, and it's not the "Correct" way of doing it, who cares so long as it doesn't throw errors under load testing :)

Totally agree - most of my .Net code isn't "The Correct Way". But 9 times out of 10, it's the right way, and the best practice way. Thanks again.
