How to make FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly) display the recently entered data?

I have a basic formview page with two text box... which I am using OnCommand via a linkbutton to insert data.  So for the data get entered correctly into the database. Then I use the  FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly);  to display the recently entered entry.  The problem I am having is that is does not show the most recently enterd data but shows the first record in the database... how I get it to show the most recenly entered data.



    protected void InsertButton_Command(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CommandName == "NewInsert")
        {

            TextBox theFirst = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox1");
            if (theFirst == null) { theFirst.Text = ""; }
            TextBox theSecond = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox2");
            if (theSecond == null) { theSecond.Text = ""; }
               
            DateTime entryDate = DateTime.Now;
            using (SqlConnection MyConnection = new SqlConnection(myGLOBAL_CONNECTION))
            {

                string sqlString = "INSERT INTO [n_tblEvaluation] ([theFirst], [theSecond) VALUES (@theFirst, @theSecond)";
                SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlString, MyConnection);
                objCmd.Connection.Open();
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@theFirst", theFirst.Text));
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@project_title", theSecond.Text));
                SqlDataReader dataReader = objCmd.ExecuteReader();
                objCmd.Connection.Close();

                FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly);
                FormView1.DataBind();
              }
        }
    }

You have to perform a "SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY()" before you close the connection. This will give you the ID of the last inserted record. Then you update the parameter for you datasource to this ID and databind.

Cleaned up your code a little.
int id = 0;
            using (SqlConnection MyConnection = new SqlConnection(myGLOBAL_CONNECTION))
            {

                string sqlString = "INSERT INTO [n_tblEvaluation] ([theFirst], [theSecond) VALUES (@theFirst, @theSecond)";
                SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlString, MyConnection);
                objCmd.Connection.Open();
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@theFirst", theFirst.Text));
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@project_title", theSecond.Text));
                objCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

                sqlString = "SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() as ID";
                objCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlString, MyConnection);
                SqlDataReader dataReader = objCmd.ExecuteReader();
                if(dataReader.Read())
                {
                     id = Convert.ToInt32(dataReader["ID"]);
                }

                objCmd.Connection.Close();

//Set parameter ID here

                FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly);
                FormView1.DataBind();
              }

I have made the following modification but I keep getting an "Must declare the variable '@id'. "  error message:

    protected void InsertButton_Command(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CommandName == "NewInsert")
        {

            TextBox theFirst = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox1");
            if (theFirst == null) { theFirst.Text = ""; }
            TextBox theSecond = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox2");
            if (theSecond == null) { theSecond.Text = ""; }
               
            DateTime entryDate = DateTime.Now;
            using (SqlConnection MyConnection = new SqlConnection(myGLOBAL_CONNECTION))
            {
            int @id = 0;
                string sqlString = "INSERT INTO [n_tblEvaluation] ([theFirst], [theSecond) VALUES (@theFirst, @theSecond); SELECT @id = SCOPE_IDENTITY()";
                SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlString, MyConnection);
                objCmd.Connection.Open();
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@theFirst", theFirst.Text));
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@project_title", theSecond.Text));
                SqlDataReader dataReader = objCmd.ExecuteReader();
                objCmd.Connection.Close();

                SqlDataSource1.SelectCommand = "SELECT [id], [theFirst, [theSecond] FROM [n_tblEvaluation] WHERE [id] = @id";
                FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly);
                FormView1.DataBind();
              }

sorry I just noticed your earlier post... I hadn't refresh...
But I tried as slightly modify version of your suggestion but it seem like the "ID" keep returning a null value... but the data was successfully entered into the database.


    protected void InsertButton_Command(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CommandName == "NewInsert")
        {

            TextBox theFirst = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox1");
            if (theFirst == null) { theFirst.Text = ""; }
            TextBox theSecond = (TextBox)FormView1.FindControl("TextBox2");
            if (theSecond == null) { theSecond.Text = ""; }
               
            DateTime entryDate = DateTime.Now;
            int id = 0;

            using (SqlConnection MyConnection = new SqlConnection(myGLOBAL_CONNECTION))

You could try the multipart SQL query like this:
 using (SqlConnection MyConnection = new SqlConnection(myGLOBAL_CONNECTION))
            {

                string sqlString = "INSERT INTO [n_tblEvaluation] ([theFirst], [theSecond) VALUES (@theFirst, @theSecond); SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() AS ID;";
                SqlCommand objCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlString, MyConnection);
                objCmd.Connection.Open();
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@theFirst", theFirst.Text));
                objCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@project_title", theSecond.Text));
                SqlDataReader dataReader = objCmd.ExecuteReader();

if (dataReader.Read())
                {

                    if (dataReader["ID"] != DBNull.Value)
                    {
                        id = Convert.ToInt32(dataReader["ID"]);
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        Response.Write("value is null");
                    }
                }

                objCmd.Connection.Close();

                FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly);
                FormView1.DataBind();
              }
