Hello,

I have an application where I'm attempting to add data to a database table and I'm having difficulties with my code. Spefically, I have a page with a gridview control populated from a database table.

My *.aspx code follows:
-----------------
<asp:MultiView ID="MultiView1" runat="server" ActiveViewIndex="0">
                                <asp:View ID="View_Bureau" runat="server">
                                    <table class="style1" width="500" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
                                        <tr>
                                            <td>
                                                &nbsp;
                                            </td>
                                        </tr>
                                        <tr>
                                            <td>
                                                <table class="modalpnl">
                                                    <tr>
                                                        <td> &nbsp;
                                                         </td>
                                                    </tr>
                                                    <tr>
                                                        <td>
                                                            <asp:GridView ID="grdBureau" runat="server" BackColor="LightGoldenrodYellow" BorderColor="Tan"  AllowSorting="True" ForeColor="Black" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="2" DataKeyNames="BureauID" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" EmptyDataText="There are no data records to display."

                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="Bureau" Type="String" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="Activate" Type="String" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="EnterBy" Type="String" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="EnterDate" Type="DateTime" />
                                                                </InsertParameters>
                                                                <UpdateParameters>

                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="Activate" Type="String" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="EnterBy" Type="String" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="EnterDate" Type="DateTime" />
                                                                    <asp:Parameter Name="BureauID" Type="Int32" />
                                                                </UpdateParameters>
                                                            </asp:SqlDataSource>

--------------

My codebehind follows:
--------------
 protected void btnsavebureau_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                        con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["BadgeCodeTablesConnectionString"].ConnectionString);


            SqlCommand cmd = con.CreateCommand();
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
            con.Open();

            cmd.CommandText = @"INSERT INTO [[BadgeCodeTables] ([Bureau], [Activate],[enterby], [enterdate]) VALUES (@bureauname,'True',@username, getdate))";

           

            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@bureauname", txtAddBureauname.Text);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Activate", 1);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@username", 1);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@getdate", 1);

            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            con.Close();

            txtAddBureauname.Text = " ";
                 
            con.Dispose();

            Response.Redirect("Administration.aspx");



        }

        private string Username()
        {
            string username = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name.ToString();
            return username;
        }
-------------

I would like help with my codebehind so that I can add new items to this table (dbo.bureau) and refresh the page so the user can see the new data upon page reload.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

I see that you have a CommandField, with an Edit button.

<asp:CommandField ShowEditButton="True" />

Are you having a problem with btnsavebureau_Click?  What does that do differently from the CommandField?

Thank you for your reply.  Indeed, I'm having a problem with the btnsavebureau_Click in that it does not seem to save.

Any code block that you could provide to add to this database table would be appreciated.  
The screen only needs the name of the bureau (bureauname), I'd insert the values: 'True',@username, getdate.

If CommandField is an Edit button for the row, and you are updating a BoundField, then you shouldn't have to write your own code.  If you are trying to insert, then I would set ShowInsertButton="true" for the CommandField.
