Hi,

Well - if you do like this (assuming you have a detailsview with ID="DetailsView1"):

DetailsView1.AutoGenerateEditButton = True
DetailsView1.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.Edit)

Open in new window


It will add an "Edit" button to the DetailsView and swith to edit mode with required functionality.

/Carl.
