NET 2.0 introduced a number of new Web controls designed for accessing and modifying data. NET 2.0's data source controls make it possible to retrieve, insert, update, and delete data without having to write the tedious dedata access code that was so commonplace in ASP. Previous installments of this article series have looked at returning, inserting, and deleting data using the Sql Data Source control. These controls can work in unison with the data source controls to facilitate inserting, updating, and deleting data.
These controls allow page developers to declaratively access and modify data without writing any code to perform the data access. In this article we will examine basics of using the Sql Data Source and Grid View controls to update records from a database.
When editing with a Grid View we'll specified (as our's does), then the Grid View's smart tag will include a checkbox titled "Enable Editing." Check this checkbox to enable editing.
