Hi,

I am using Visual Studio 2010 asp.net 4.0 and cannot seem to update my databse when i use sqldatasource update.  For example.  All I need to do is upadate two fileds with the current logged on user and change the status from New to Active.  The current logged on user is grabbed via label using HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name.ToString().  And the "Active" status is a default value in the update parameter sqldatasource. My code is below.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                            DataKeyNames="ticketID" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
                            <Columns>
                                <asp:BoundField DataField="ticketID" HeaderText="ticketID"
                                    InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="ticketID" />
                                <asp:BoundField DataField="Status" HeaderText="Status"
                                    SortExpression="Status" />
                                <asp:BoundField DataField="AssignedTo" HeaderText="AssignedTo"
                                    SortExpression="AssignedTo" />
                            </Columns>
                        </asp:GridView>
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
                            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:mmchd_dbConnectionString %>"
                           
                            SelectCommand="SELECT [ticketID], [Status], [AssignedTo] FROM [Tickets_tbl]"
                            UpdateCommand="UPDATE [Tickets_tbl] SET [Status] = @Status, [AssignedTo] = @AssignedTo WHERE [ticketID] = @ticketID">

                            <UpdateParameters>
                                <asp:Parameter DefaultValue="" Name="ticketID" Type="Int32" />
                                <asp:Parameter DefaultValue="Active" Name="Status" />
                                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="lblName" DefaultValue="" Name="AssignedTo"
                                    PropertyName="Text" />
                            </UpdateParameters>
                        </asp:SqlDataSource>

I can update the table manually by typing in the values in the edit mode of the gridview, but it seems that it cannot grab those values dynamically for some reason.  I

Thanks for any help!!

Hi,


I don't see the label with ID="lblName" anywhere in the markup code posted, I assume it sits outside the gridview? Does any of the values propagate into the database on update?

yes the label is outside the gridview.  No values change during the update event.
