I have recently converted an asp.net web application to 4.0 from 2.0. There is one feature in gridview that has stopped working since then. The gridview is populated with all the available orders. The first column is "edit" and the second column is "delete". These two columns are displayed for each row if the order can be modified. the issue I am having is when "edit" is clicked on an order, it goes to a different panel where the order can be edited but upon clicking "back" button when it reloads the gridview, the delete and edit columns are hidden for the row that was edited. When that row is bound, the following error is thrown

Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.

I have attached the gridview and the databound code behind. Please advise.

This issue is, the control that you are looking in the code does not exits. This might be due to binding or the other event, where you have logic written to hide the action.

Modify the code as follows

If (e.Row.Cells(1).Controls.Count > 0) AndAlso (e.Row.Cells(1).Controls(0) IsNot Nothing) Then
[indent]Dim lnk As LinkButton = e.Row.Cells(1).Controls(0)[/indent]
[indent]lnk.OnClientClick = "if(!confirm('Do you want to delete this?')) return false;"[/indent]
End If

Open in new window

The issue here is that e.Row.Cells(1).Controls(0) should be accessible. I am not sure why it is not. After i hit edit on a row and reload the page, the edit and delete columns for that row disappear and a new link "Update" appears in the first column.

How can I make sure edit and delete columns are visible and accessible when the gridview loads?

This action of edit / delete disappears & update link shown, suggests that it is in template on same page/grid. If you are showing / loading popup for edit action, then take this out from template & put as Image button. (Same for Delete button). This can be managed & there by no update link shown.
