But when I try to Update the table with a new value from the Drop Down List the table does not get updated with the new value.I'm new at this and I'm sure I'm overlooking something simple here.The first page is in a Master Page, you'll need to provide that.It s fairly common for Web applications to work on a single record at a time. NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008, this released included two new ASP.
NET data Web controls: the List View and Data Pager.This property should be assigned with the Primary Key of the database table. We cannot retrieve the datakey values as the data is not yet bound to the details View control.After doing this, we can retrieve the Data Key value in the following ways. So, we call Databind() method in the Page Index Changed event handler and then retrieve the datakey value as shown in the code given below. The Details View control provides built-in capabilities that allow the user to update, delete, insert, and page through items in the control. In edit mode, the Edit button is replaced with an Update and a Cancel button. For more information, see Validation Server Controls. The Details View control can automatically add a Command Field row field with an Edit, Delete, or New button by setting the Details View. Unlike the Delete button (which deletes the selected record immediately), when the Edit or New button is clicked, the Details View control goes into edit or insert mode, respectively.
I'll post the ASP code, hopefully someone can help me with this one.
