I am designing a web page in visual studio.net 2005 using C#, ajax, asp.net 2.0 and has a MySql database tied in that displays the information from the database in a gridview.

My question is how do i make a button that will allow me to take values entered into a series of text boxes and insert the values into the MySql database table employeestatus on button click. Thanks for ya time!

Instead of showing it to you line by line, please take a look at this project, it contains all what you want and possibly a bit more. There's not a lot of explanation going on, but I think most is quite self-explanatory. If you have follow-up questions, I'll be happy to help. http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/mysqlinaspnet.aspx

public sub button_click()
{
      using(OdbcConnection con = new OdbcConnection(ConnStr))
        using(OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand("INSERT INTO sample" +
                                "(name, address) VALUES (?,?)", con))
        {
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@name", OdbcType.VarChar,
                               255).Value = txtName.Text.Trim();
            cmd. Parameters.Add("@address", OdbcType.VarChar,

Most of the idea is the same, but there are a few subtle changes though. Nothing that will hold you back.

I decited to use interface of the gridview instead of creating new buttons, and i got the update working but, im not sure how to have the WHERE target individual records instead of the whole column. Here is my working update code.

UpdateCommand="UPDATE employeestatus SET `First Name` = ? WHERE (`Badge` = Badge)

It updates the whole First Name column because my WHERE is not correct, the badge field is the primary key field. How can i get it to target only the record that i edit?
