I need to rewrite an asp.net 1.1 page to asp.net 4.0.
The old page contains a gridview with an area to edit each row of data.
The updates are being done like this (instead of within the grid) because there are too many fields to fit in the datagrid.
The technique used is here: http://www.dotnetjohn.com/articles.aspx?articleid=83
The new version needs the same functionality. That is, a user will fill in fields, click an add button. that record is then added to a gridview. That same record can then be edited or deleted.
I don't want to use FormView or Detailsview because there are too many fields that have dependencies on each other. Example: the selection of a ddl might be dependent on what was selected on a prior ddl. (it is my understanding that FormView and DetailsView become cumbersome to work with when there are such depencies on binding data)
Can anyone offer up suggestions or sample code for implementing this basic screen that has an editing area along with a gridview (without using FormView or DetailsView?)
