Using the gridview to Insert a Record RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1659040753 posted
    This might have been covered by someone already, but I was wondering if there is a way to use the gridview and dynamic data to insert a record.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    I am aware the you can update and delete using the gridview.

    Maybe use the footer template?

    The answer is to use a ListView.

    I dont see how a datalist and gridview help me with inserting? 

    My goal is to have a gridview like experience where you can add, edit, and delete.  Where you dont have to go to another page.

    Thanks for looking that up.  Is this what you suggest as opposed to the ListView.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    The reason I ask is because the GirdView does not seem to be built for inserting. Also, since I am using DynamicData I want to have metadata support. 

    I did not try to place DynamicControls into the footer of a GridView, maybe it would work.  I would have tried that way you suggested if David Ebbo did not suggest the ListView.

    Hi BringerOD, I don't know if you gave up or found another answer but I thought I post this anyway:

    Hi I decided that I'd not bother with getting the GridView to do Insert and instead get the ListView to be a bit more dynamic, so heres my article:Dynamic Data Custom Pages: Dynamic/Templated Grid with Insert (Using ListView)

    From Windows Live Writer

    Hope this helps Big Smile
