So here's what I want to do, and pardon if I'm not using the right terminology.
I have a gridview on my page. The data record is extraordinarly long (about 30+ columns) in the database, so instead of using the built-in "edit" function in the GridView, what I want to do is have the "Edit" field take the user to another page where I have created a Data View setup. This is more user-friendly because the user will only have to scroll vertically instead of horizontally.
The approach I want to take is to pass the ID of the record the user selects to edit from the GridView, put it into a Session Variable, then retrieve it from the Edit page to pull up the appropriate record. What I don't know is how to find the selected "ID" in the GridView.
First, am I taking the right approach here or did I make it too hard? Is there something built-in to gridview that would be easier than passing variables into a session then retrieving them?
Second, if the variable passing is the most logical approach, how do I access it?
