In this method, I am specifying the Edit Index property of the Grid View to -1.As there is no row at -1 position so Grid View will be shown in normal mode.Please note that when you will not bind the data again, Grid View will not change in edit mode.When Cancel link is clicked on Grid View in edit mode, On Row Canceling Edit event will fire that will call Cancel Record method.Hope this article helps to begin working with Grid View control. Right now I have a label turn to visible true and a message when someone either edits or deletes something successfully.If you have a feedback or suggestion, please do write to me.

What would you do if you wanted to have an event trigger when you click on the "cancel" button during the delete process. When a person starts to delete another item and decides to cancel the delete, the old message from the previously edited or deleted item still shows. ya,its how can I use the button field for the edit and delete in the template field.suppose i used that controls,what kind of events could I used for edit successfully? Next Select your database and Set “Save Entity connection string in Web.config as” option true giving name Sample Entities.
In this method, I am specifying the Edit Index property of the Grid View to the New Edit Index of the Grid View and then calling Bind Data() method again to bind the data.
I will be using Sql objects directly into methods to keep the example simple and straight forward.
In practical scenario you should use your existing architecture to populate and update the data.
In this method again, I am getting the primary key value using Data Keys property of the Grid View and using it to delete the records from the database.
After successfully deleting records, again I am calling Bind Data() method to rebind the Grid View.In this article, I am going to take a simple database table that has following fields: Auto ID - Int, Auto Increment, Primary Key Page Name - Varchar(50) Page Description - Varchar(500) Active - Bit(1) In this article, I am not going to explain the workings of Sql objects but focusing on the events and methods of the Grid View that will help us in updating and deleting the records.
