Bind Text to a RadTextBox from a SQL DataSource for updating

Posted on 2011-03-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hello Experts!  

I am working with Telerik software and creating a very run of the mill RadGrid that pulls data from my SQL table.  I have a completely SEPARATE page that acts as the form that inserts data into this table that populates my grid.  All that is working fine.  

Where I am stuck is UPDATING the data.  I want to use the SAME form to Update my data as I do to Insert my data.  My SQLDataSource is simply querying my table using a querystring and parameter ID.

What I can't for the life of me seem to do is Bind a field from the database to my fields on my form.  So simple right??  But I can't get it to work.  Below is the code of my SQLDataSource and just the one little field I am working with.  I have many more, but I am just working with 1 for now.

Can anyone please tell me what I am missing?  What do I need to do differently to get this Bind to work?  Thanks!!

<form id="form1" runat="server">

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" 
         ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:PositionStatementsConnectionString %>" 
         SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Statements] WHERE ([ID] = @ID)" 
         DeleteCommand="DELETE FROM [Statements] WHERE [ID] = @ID" 
         InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [Statements] ([PSTitle]) VALUES (@PSTitle)" 
         UpdateCommand="UPDATE [Statements] SET [PSTitle] = @PSTitle WHERE [ID] = @ID">
             <asp:Parameter Name="ID" Type="Int32" />
             <asp:Parameter Name="PSTitle" Type="String" />
             <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" Type="Int32" />
             <asp:Parameter Name="PSTitle" Type="String" />

<telerik:RadTextBox ID="PSTitle" Text='<%# Bind("PSTitle") %>' Runat="server" Skin="Web20">

The update command has two parameters: PSTitle and ID. However, you just defined one parameter PSTitle. Try to add new parameter for ID.

Thats right here...isn't it?

             <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" Type="Int32" />

UPDATE [Statements] SET [PSTitle] = @PSTitle WHERE [ID] = @ID
has two parameters. But in your code, it seems that you just register one parameter for update command. Try the following:
             <asp:Parameter Name="PSTitle" Type="String" />
             <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" Type="Int32" />
