I am in the process of converting an old version of an asp.net application to newer controls. I am trying to use a gridview and I have it populated from the SQL Server. I have several asp:button fields for "Edit" and "Delete". When I click either of the buttons the code behind works but when it completes the procedure the postback causes an HTTP Error 400 - Bad Request.

I commented out the lines...I know this is fired with a post back but not sure why the page does not return to it previous display.

               <asp:Panel id ='referenceLevelLabels' runat="server" CssClass="panel">
                    <asp:GridView ID="referenceLevelLabel" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CssClass="gridview">

                        <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="LightSteelBlue" />
                        <Columns>
                            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Action">
                                <itemtemplate>
                                    <asp:Button ID="refEdit" Text="Edit" CommandName="Edit" runat="server" CommandArgument="<%# CType(Container,GridViewRow).RowIndex %>" />
                                    <asp:Button ID="refDelete" Text="Delete" CommandName="Delete" runat="server" CommandArgument="<%# CType(Container,GridViewRow).RowIndex %>" />
                                </itemtemplate>
                            </asp:TemplateField>
                            <asp:BoundField DataField="referenceLevelLabel" HeaderText="Label"  SortExpression="referenceLevelLabel" >
                                <ItemStyle BackColor="BlanchedAlmond" />
                            </asp:BoundField>
                            <asp:BoundField DataField="referenceLevelStatus" HeaderText="Status" />
                            <asp:BoundField DataField="isDefaultLabel" HeaderText="Is Default" />
                        </Columns>
                    </asp:GridView>                    
                </asp:Panel>

I discovered that the commandname name has reserved words. The Edit and Delete must be something like EditMe or DeleteMe if you want to handle the click event of the button in the rowcommand procedure.

Once this was changed then it did the postback without any hiccups or errors.

I saw this on a different solution within EE.
Change the attribute commandName from Edit to EditMe or Delete to DeleteMe.
The Edit and Delete have specific methods for handling these type of events if you leave the names as Edit or Delete.
