Hi, I'm using vs2012.
I only want 3 of the columns to require users to fill in content when they check a checkbox column.   How can I do alert the user and stop user when they Click the Update button after editing a row in gridview control and cancel the Update?

thank you.

Assuming your current code in the UpdateButton is something like the following pseudo code:
ButtonClick
{
  UpdateDatabase
}

then change it to
ButtonClick
{
  if NOT CheckAllRequiredFieldsAreFilled
    MessageToInformUserToFillAllRequiredFields
  else
    UpdateDatabase
  end if
}

My gridview control is set to auto-generate the Edit and Update button.  How do you set the message when that Update button is checked?  Thank you.
