I have a DataGrid with a column as a ButtonColumn. I need to display or not the button on a row-by-row basis based on data in the data binding. How do I do this?

change it to a template field.

instead of enabled just set the visible property.

I have a DataGrid, not GridView. Will this work the same?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Working on it. I have the asp setup, but not sure what to do with the btnDelete_DataBinding() method. The DataGrid data source is bound to a System.Collections.Generic.List<MyObjects>, so somehow this gets used in the method:
protected void btnDelete_DataBinding(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    Button btn = (Button)(sender);
    btn.Entable = true;
    if (myObjectList (current element?).ACertainField.toString().Equals("someState")) {
        btn.Entable = false;
    }
}

Open in new window

the if statement above being the critical part. Can you suggest what to do ?

Also I get this run-time error:
Parser Error Message: System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridColumnCollection must have items of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridColumn'. 'asp:TemplateField' is of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TemplateField'.

It does not work exactly the same. With a DataGrid, one must use <asp:TemplateColumn>
