Accessing fields when updating from formvie/objectdatasource

Greetings all

I have a page with two formviews on it - fvPeople and fvAddress. Each is linked to its own objectdatasource (with DataObjectTypeName set to a class taht defiens all the fields). The fvPeople is the "owner" of the address.

The ODS for fvAddress contains a field called People_Link which is the Id of the People record. This field is not displayed within the formview. Updating an existing address record for a People record works fine, but when it comes to inserting an Address record then I run into trouble  -- I can't pass the People record's Id to the Insert procedure of the ods -- if I define the method as "InsertAddress(AddressODS_DO addr, int InsertCoupleId) --  it complains about being unable to find a generic method that takes just "AddressODS_DO" as paremeter.

As an experiment, I placed the "People_Link" field in the InsertTemplate, making it invisible. This seems to work -- just not sure how acecptable this is?

Any thoughts on how to get around this?


In advance, thanks!!!

When using DataObjects your update / insert record can only have one parameter which must be of that type. I'm assuming that InsertCoupleId is a property of this datatype?

You can manipulate the dataobject before it is passed to the update / insert routine through the Updating / Inserting events of the objectdatasource, both of which have the same delegate parameters:

(object sender, ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs e)

so you could add: OnInserting = "addressODS_Inserting" to your ObjectDataSource, then:

protected void addressODS_Inserting(object sender, ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs e)
    {
        DataTransferObjects.AddressODS_DO obj= (DataTransferObjects.AddressODS_DO)e.InputParameters[0];
        obj.InsertCoupleID = Whatevervalue;
    }
