Web Form: How Do You Create a Web Form Containing a FormView and Two Sub Forms

I have a web form in which I have a TABLE structure containing a FormView which displays a single row from a table. I have it coded such that I can switch between ItemTemplate (for viewing the data) and EditItemTemplate (for updating the data). This is working.

I also have on the same web page a separate TABLE structure into which I need to place something like a Repeater for displaying multiple rows of data. I chose the Repeater because I want to control the format of the data being displayed. Instead of displaying the row fields as columns, I want to display the fields one under the other with a separator between data rows. The Repeater seems to provide this capability, but, unlike the FormView, the Repeater only has the ItemTemplate. I need to be able to switch the view so that I can update the data.

How do you switch between View (readonly) and Edit within a Repeater? If it is possible, can you give a brief example or point me to a website that explains it?

Are you looking for the capabilities of the DetailsView?

I found, in a Google search, a way to do most of what I need done (Edit and Delete) without the DetailsView. See http://sureshsharmaaspdotnet.wordpress.com/2008/05/12/edit-update-delete-in-repeater-in-aspnet/ for more information.

Using the above link I figured out how to get the Repeater to display the data from the database table with an Edit and Delete button on each row of data. However, there was no description of how to Add a record. I don't know how to get the Repeater to give me a blank row on request (I.E. I click an ADD button) so that I can type the data into the form and then add it to the database table.

Does anyone know how to do this?
