asp.net 3.5+ formview + update command

I have a formview and would like to have an update button and cancel button in the form, but instead of using a SQL datasource or something, i would like to call a function in the code behind and do some things with the fields in the form - how would i do this?
1 Solution
Add OnItemCommand handler for FormView and then

<asp:Button  ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Update" CommandName="MyUpdate" />

protected void FormView1_ItemCommand(object sender, FormViewCommandEventArgs e)
        if (e.CommandName == "MyUpdate")
            //Do your custom update here            

Note: I am using CommandName="MyUpdate"
