Greetings all

I have a page with 4 formview controls on it. Each FormView has an EditTemplate with Update and Cancel buttons. Iwould liek to provide "Update All" and "Cancel All" buttons.

How do I get these buttons to execute the commands associated with the respective Update/Cancel buttons in each of the formviews?

In advance, thanks!!

<asp:Button ID=UpdateAllButton" runat="server" Text="UpdateAll" OnClick="UpdateAllButton_Click" />
<%-- Code Behind --%>

protected void UpdateAllButton_Click (object sender, EventArgs e)
bool doValidation = true;
//Call the Update method on each FormView:
FormView1.UpdateItem(doValidation );
FormView2.UpdateItem(doValidation );
FormView3.UpdateItem(doValidation );
FormView4.UdpateItem(doValidation );

Applied your suggestion. What happens is that the data for the first formview is saved, but for those following it is not
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkbtnUpdateAll_AE" runat="server" OnClick="ButtonUpdateAll_Click">Update all details</asp:LinkButton>
protected void ButtonUpdateAll_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        bool doValidation = true;

.. not sure if this has any bearing on the issue ...

If the update commands are swopped around, so that the last formview (in order that they appear on the page) is updated first, and then the first formview is updated   --  this works?
