My aspx page has Table declared in it.In the page load event I am dynamically populating the Table  with Table cells and Table Cells with GridViews.
I added a Button on the page. When the user clicks the button dynamcally populated gridviews should be editable. How to do this.

    At a time you can edit only one row in a gridview. What do you mean by editable by clicking a button?

GridView.Disabled = True/False

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi rajvja,
Yes, at a time we can edit only one row in a gridview.

I have a button outside the grid.When the user clicks on that button the Grid columns should be enabled. So the user can chnage the values.
I tried GridView.Enabled = true but it is not working. The gridview columns are still disabled.

Please give me any suggestions.

Set the EditIndex property to the appropriate row and then ReBind the GridVIew again to it's DataSource.  Hope this helps.
