Basically, the scenario I have is that I have a foreign key column in my Grid View that I want to show as a Drop Down List of values.
The code below shows me the values in the Drop Down List, but when I update it with the “edit” of the Grid View row, the value does not get saved.
This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the update operation, whenever this event occurs.
A Grid View Update Event Args object is passed to the event-handling method, which enables you to determine the index of the current row and to indicate that the update operation should be canceled.
A personal project I am currently working on is creating a database site, which will drive a organizations on-line membership management system.
