I have a gridview that has update capabilities. How do I create an error message when there are more that say 20 characters? Thanks in advance
<asp:GridView ID="eventsGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="ID"
         DataSourceID="AccessDataSource1" 
            <Columns>
                <asp:BoundField DataField="ID" HeaderText="ID" InsertVisible="False"/>
                <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Event" SortExpression="event">
                    <EditItemTemplate>
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtUpdateEvent" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("event") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                    </EditItemTemplate>
                    <ItemTemplate>                   
                        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("event") >'></asp:Label>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>        
                <asp:CommandField ButtonType="Button" ShowEditButton="True" />
            </Columns>
 
Protected Sub EventsGrid_RowUpdated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdatedEventArgs) Handles eventsGrid.RowUpdated
        If e.Exception IsNot Nothing Then
        lblError.Text = "An exception ocurred." & e.Exception.Message
        e.ExceptionHandled = True
       e.KeepInEditMode = True
         ElseIf e.AffectedRows = 0 Then
          lblError.Text = "No rows Updated"
 End If
End Sub

There is no need to raise an error in case there are more than 20 character as you can limit your user to enter maximum of 20 (or whatever maximum limit is) characters by using the MaxLength property of the TextBox in ASP.NET.

Add the part formatted bold in your ASPX code and you are done.

<asp:TextBox ID="txtUpdateEvent" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("event") %>' MaxLength="20"></asp:TextBox>

Yes, thank you. It does throw an exception. Maybe because of the below code. I had to set the maximum inthe database also.

Protected Sub EventsGrid_RowUpdated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdatedEventArgs) Handles eventsGrid.RowUpdated
        If e.Exception IsNot Nothing Then
        lblError.Text = "An exception ocurred." & e.Exception.Message
        e.ExceptionHandled = True
       e.KeepInEditMode = True
         ElseIf e.AffectedRows = 0 Then
          lblError.Text = "No rows Updated"
 End If
End Sub
