I have a GridView in asp.net (c#) that has the following definition:

            <asp:GridView ID="gvSchedules" runat="server" CellPadding="5" OnRowCreated="gvSchedules_RowCreated"

The problem is on most rows, when Select is clicked, the Edit link displays and when Edit is clicked the Update and Cancel links display.  However, on some rows the Update link doesn't display (only the Cancel link) when Edit is clicked.  It appears to be data related but I can't figure out what in the data is causing the problem.

Here is the code for the RowEditing event:

        protected void gvSchedules_RowEditing(object sender, GridViewEditEventArgs e)
        {
            Master.resultsMessage = null;
            Master.showResults = false;

            try
            {
                // Cancel the paging operation if the user attempts to edit another record while the 
                // gridview control is in edit mode.
                if (gvSchedules.SelectedIndex == -1 || gvSchedules.SelectedIndex != e.NewEditIndex)
                {
                    // Use the Cancel property to cancel 
                    e.Cancel = true;

                    // Display an error message
                    Master.resultsMessage = "You must select the record before trying to edit.";
                    Master.showResults = true;
                    return;
                }

                // Cancel the paging operation if the user attempts to edit another record while the 
                // gridview control is in edit mode.
                if (gvSchedules.EditIndex != -1)
                {
                    // Use the Cancel property to cancel 
                    e.Cancel = true;

                    // Display an error message
                    Master.resultsMessage = "Please finish updating the current record.";
                    Master.showResults = true;
                    return;
                }

                // Unhide Select link so Update link will display
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[0].Visible = true;
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[1].Visible = true;
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[2].Visible = true;

                // get current schedule value
                Label lblReason = gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].FindControl("lblSchedule") as Label;
                String currentReason = lblReason.Text;

                // get currently selected Status value
                Label label = gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].FindControl("lblActiveFlag") as Label;
                String currentValue = label.Text;

                // switch grid to edit mode and re-bind
                gvSchedules.EditIndex = e.NewEditIndex;
                gvSchedules.DataSource = dtMasterSchedule;
                gvSchedules.DataBind();

                // grab the DropDownList and find the corresponding option
                DropDownList ddl = gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].FindControl("ddlStatus") as DropDownList;
                ListItem item = ddl.Items.FindByValue(currentValue);

                // set option selected if found
                if (item != null)
                    item.Selected = true;

What is this code used for?

 
 // Unhide Select link so Update link will display
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[0].Visible = true;
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[1].Visible = true;
                gvSchedules.Rows[e.NewEditIndex].Cells[0].Controls[2].Visible = true;

That code was used in an attempt to display the Update and Cancel links.

You shouldn't need that code, if you use the GridView.ShowEditButton and ShowCancelButton properties.

CommandField.ShowEditButton Property
