Gridview Partially Updating

Posted on 2011-03-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a gridview that is separated into a commandfield and 2 templatefields.  The 2nd templatefield updates properly when using the edit feature from the command field, but the first templatefield which has multiple pieces of data does not work and I cannot figure out why.  Here is the code - can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
<!-- Gridview displaying Site information -->        
        <asp:Label ID="lblSiteHeader" runat="server" Text="Site Info" CssClass="header"></asp:Label>

I found the problem - for some reason the values wouldn't bind being in an asp:table.  when i used classic table tags <table> <tr><td> etc. it works fine.

Can anyone explain why the asp:table doesn't work?

Basically it becomes a child object of the asp:Table and not a child of the gridview.  So it became an object within an object (nested) so it lost focus of the bound data.

Sorry that may not be the best explanation, but I hope it gives you the right idea.

Thanks - I figured it was something like that - am not familiar with using asp:table much and saw no reason i would need it so switched back to standard html table and it had worked - i appreciate the insight.
