I have a form view without a gridview. I've searched relentlessly on the net to find an example that does not use a gridview..it seems like these two go hand in hand...

I have a dropdownlist with a list of customer names. However, index position 0 is "---New Customer---"

So depending on what is selected in this combo box, when one clicks a select button it displays the proper formview mode...Everything works fine..

When I select a customer and click select, it bring up edit mode.. this is fine.. I make a change and hit update and nothing happens.. however, the events do fire but as I understand it, these buttong are pre programmed to do their jobs... right?

I also have this problem inserting a new customer with formview... the insert button does nothing. however the cancel buttons do work..

So my question is, do I need to program these buttons to make them work, or do I have parameters wrong or something?
<% this is the data source and parameters used by the form view ----%>    

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="customerDetailsDS" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ITP244ConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT Name, Address1, Address2, City, State, ZipCode, PhoneNumber, StudentID, CustomerID 
                        FROM Student.Customer 
                        WHERE (StudentID = @StudentID) 
                        AND (CustomerID = @CustomerID)" 
                        ConflictDetection="CompareAllValues" 
                        InsertCommandType="StoredProcedure" 
                        InsertCommand="Student.InsertCustomer" 
                        ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient" 
                        UpdateCommandType="StoredProcedure" 
                        UpdateCommand="Student.UpdateCustomer">
        <SelectParameters>
            <asp:SessionParameter Name="StudentID" SessionField="StudentID" />
            <asp:ControlParameter Name="CustomerID" ControlID="customerNameDDL" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />

Hi,

It is not working because you have not specified any update or insert parameters for the datasource, only for the select command.

Everything I read said the formview used the original values as parameters.. I figured since the fields were bound that it would some how figure it out on its own.. Thanks!
