Hi!

I have created a form that has a gridview (readonly) for customers and a details view that for customer contacts.

When the user selects a gridview row, the contacts for that customer are in the details view which has paging.

When our user add a new customer, I want to autopopulate the Details view ID field with the selected Customer ID.  

How do I do this?

Hi,

You can use AJAX ModalPopup to populate the Details

I had to change the property of the field in the Entity Model to read only persistent.  In the details view, to add a new contact, the users must enter the correct customer/vendor ID.
