Edit Column in GridView

Is it possible to change the order of appearance of the "Edit" column on an editable GridView?  I'd like it to appear next to a given column instead of all the way tio the left.

Also, can I change the word?  I'd like it to say "select" instead of "Edit".

Hi,

Yup.. In the Columns editor, just bring the edit button up in the list and place it under the column entry that you want the button to be placed next to.  In the appearance section of the column settings, you can change the text of the button to be whatever you like.

If you need more step by step instructions, let me know.

Cheers,

G.

Wait...I don't see the "edit" column in the list of columns.  This is the "edit" column automatically generated by the GridView, not one I've added myself.

Hey Nigel,

In your columns editor, you should see an item called CommandField, or if you chose a specific type of button from the CommandField buttons, you will see an Edit,Update,Cancel or Select or Delete..

You can use the up/down arrows to position this "column" anywhere on the row..  Also, when you view the properties (on the right half of the columns editor), you will see (under appearance) the following entries that you can change..

ButtonType - This could be a Link, Image, or a button

EditText - If you have the button type set as a link or button, you can change the text that is displayed to the user as the link or button.

Thats all there really is to it.

Cheers,

G.
